Tulajewelry beautiful, ethical, sustainable jewelry.

Marisa handcrafted my engagement ring out of recycled 14k white gold and a 1 carat Moissanite stone - which is conflict free and is not sourced by destructive and exploitative mining. She did a flawless job on it - I cannot wait for the rest of our bridal set.

All of her jewelry is unique and she is committed to eco-friendly processes that make her treasures something you can adore for more than just their beauty.
