Our Mission

Our main goals are providing our clients with an easy, transparent jewelry purchasing experience and making sure that every customer is 100% in love with their design. We encourage customers to ask questions and provide feedback through every stage of the purchasing and design process. We take the time to listen.

We are constantly striving to become a more responsible business. In 2014 we decided to start carrying laboratory grown diamonds and focusing on both lab and Canadian mined diamonds as alternatives to traditional “Conflict Free” diamonds. We also sell Fair Trade gemstone and gems mined in the United States such as Montana Sapphires.

All of our metals that we use in our jewelry are recycled.

We have transitioned to packaging that is recycled, made in the USA, and/or made in fair trade workshops.

Our People

Ilah Cibis, grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and started making jewelry when she was 14. After receiving her B.F.A. From Boston University, she attended the North Bennet Street School's Jewelry Making and Repair program in Boston's North End. Ilah is now an adviser to the North Bennet Street School's Jewelry department. Ilah is an international award winning CAD jewelry designer. Her specialty is designing in tandem with her customers, brainstorming together to develop a design based on the customers' personal style and needs.


Jessica Karlinsky, Ilah Cibis Jewelry's beading and unconventional materials expert, graduated from Mass Art with a B.F.A. in Fibers, studied fashion at RISD, and graduated from the North Bennet Street School's Jewelry Making and Repair program. Her designs are modern and fashion forward. She also has a vast knowledge of metaphysical properties of gemstones.

In 2018 we started donating $1 for each gift box we give out to Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL), an organization that promotes dignity, health, and sustainable livelihoods through the transformation of wastes into resources.

We believe that the path to sustainability is through transformation. SOIL is driven by a philosophy called Liberation Ecology. Influenced by both the liberation theology movement and ecological theory, Liberation Ecology recognizes that the most threatened and marginalized human beings will generally be found living in similarly threatened ecosystems. SOIL seeks to empower the marginalized and oppressed, equipping them to restore their environments by transforming dangerous pollutants into valuable resources. Since 2006, SOIL has been working in partnership and solidarity with some of Haiti’s most vulnerable communities to tackle the intersecting issues of waterborne illness, food insecurity, economic disempowerment, and lack of access to basic service.
