Jewelry Saving Lives: All About Us
Welcome to our new and improved blog! Here you will find all of our up to date information on our products and special announcements! Thank you for checking out our first post!
A Little Background
Jewelry Saving Lives was founded in 2014 by our esteemed mastermind and owner, Paige. Creating our company from her Master’s program thesis, Paige made the company’s foundation about making a difference and giving back. In doing so, our company has made long strides into creating eco-friendly sustainability and practicing ethically sourced mining for our gemstone jewelry.
We are, first and foremost, a women led and run company who’s greatest attribute is making the world a better place. To do this, we ensure our greatest source of love and inspiration: Animals! To give back, we take 10% of our profits and donate them to help injured and abused animals. We draw our inspiration from the animals we help and the animals we have at home.
As a company, we strive to always bring the best solutions that we can in the current climate that the world is in. Our top priority is making a difference to our customers, the environment, and to those in need. The world is a better place with beautiful things, so why not have a beautiful piece of jewelry to help save the day?
Business Morality and Principles
Each member of our team comes from a retail background, and while working for retail corporations we quickly noticed some horrifying trends, and we wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem. We set out to fix these current issues in today's retail climate and create products that are affordable, sustainable, and help animals while still having exceptional quality.
We believe that helping the environment is just as important as helping our animals. We try to implement sustainable measures in everything we do. All of our packing, including mailers, gift boxes, ribbon, and flyers are made from 100% recycled products with no chemical additives. We always make sure our materials are mined from responsible sustainable sources and come from local family and artisan companies instead of corporate giants.
We even created a patent cut for our gemstones! It took a few years to perfect and to implement, but our goal was to create a piece that could be for the everyday wearer. Our signature cut is our most popular best seller as it is perfect to wear on a typical day or on a special occasion. This cut is particularly special because it will not get caught on everyday objects! These pieces are made to last.
Meet The Team
Here at JSL, we pride ourselves on not only being a women run business, but also for encouraging a more casual work environment. Unlike our predecessors in the corporate world, we believe that comfort triumphs over uniform! Our studio consists of our small team in a comfortable and warm setting.

Dare I say, our team collectively agrees that we cannot make the transit back to corporate life after working at JSL!
