Cast from real sea stars, Catherine Weitzman's My Lucky Stars Earrings are a wearable portrait, offering a series of stars to represent each part of a family's constellation—the mother on one side and a climber of her little stars on the other. The symbolic nature of the design offers a special, hidden meaning for the wearer, along with a youthfully sophisticated silhouette.

paid time off
Their PTO policy depends upon length of employment and status (full or part-time). All employees start with a minimum of 2 weeks PTO and accrue more time off based on the length of their employment and their evaluations. The company is also flexible about granting more unpaid time, as needed. PST is also granted as needed.
recycling primary/secondary materials
They recycle all of their metal, separating "clean metal" (which just gets re-melted) from "dirty metal" (i.e. metal that's been soldered), which gets refined.
The company does not formally track their charitable giving, but meets all our other criteria for responsible business practices.
Environmentally Friendly Materials
Sterling silver and 18K gold vermeil—natural source materials.
My Lucky Stars Earrings are packaged in 100% recycled cardboard boxes (made with 90% post-consumer fiber and 10% pre-consumer fiber), covered with recycled paper. The boxes contain anti-tarnish poly-fill.
