With Purpose is embracing a culture of compassion within the fine jewelry industry. Built in New York City, With Purpose was inspired by our founder's father, a first responder on September 11th. As a native New Yorker, our founder felt her community in need.
With Purpose was founded on the belief that fine jewelry can be about something bigger than ourselves.
Bespoke Fine Jewelry for All
We’re making fine jewelry more accessible for everyone and setting a price point that serves every generation. Never mass-produced, each bespoke collection is curated with cause and connection at the forefront. Aligning our communities with the causes that matter most.
Curated Collections for a Cause
With Purpose is dedicated to giving a portion of the proceeds from every purchase to organizations that directly support individuals, families, and communities whose lives have been forever changed by adversity. Each unique collection is inspired by a meaningful cause, and every piece tells a story.
Our cause-based collections feature delicate and minimal jewelry that evokes everlasting luxury. All of our pieces are ethically crafted and made to last a lifetime.
Sustainability From the Ground Up
Creating mindful jewelry means an unwavering commitment to maintaining ethical practices and sustainably-sourced materials. To us, sustainability expands beyond environmental action. It is about holistic growth, constant evolvement, and supporting the local communities who contribute to our collections in as many ways as possible.
Designed, developed, and manufactured in New York, our ethically crafted collections utilize locally-sourced precious and semi-precious gemstones, 14k recycled gold and platinum, and reclaimed melee. Each piece is one of a kind and handcrafted by local artisans, manufacturers, and New York-based master jewelers with whom we’ve had the pleasure of building personal relationships. Our team has worked for some of the most prestigious fine jewelry brands in the world, and have over 30 combined years of industry experience.
Setting out to raise the bar of transparency within the fine jewelry industry, we’ll be sharing a behind the scenes look from the jewelers bench, and profiling our partners and master jewelers, so that you can get to know not only the process that goes into crafting each collection but the talented individuals behind your unique piece.
Fine jewelry celebrates our individuality and empowers the women who wear it. The way in which we create it should reflect these values. Dedicated to sustainability and exquisite artistry throughout every step of production, our high-quality conscious jewelry embodies everyday elegance without comprising our standards.
Made for Women, by Women
With Purpose is female-founded, owned, and operated. Our team is comprised of female artisans, vendors, manufacturers, and master jewelers who are all handpicked from some of the greatest diamond workshops in the world.
We believe in equality, sustainable economic growth, and endless opportunities for women across all ecosystems. With Purpose strives to empower women through creative collaboration, community-building, and impact-driven partnerships. Together, we’ll shift the fine jewelry narrative to one of increased visibility and inclusivity.
About the Founder
Stephanie has spent her career honing her craft under the guidance of some of the top designers in the fine jewelry industry. Viewing her collections as an extension of the best parts of herself, she has created a refined, signature jewelry brand that is rooted in community and compassion. Sourcing endless inspiration from authentic connections made while traveling the world, Stephanie infuses a spark of personal touch into everything she creates.
What began as a passion project, sparked the question, “If I can do this for my family and friends, who else can I help?” Thus, With Purpose was born in the heart of the greatest city in the world. Drawing on her multidisciplinary background in fashion, fine art, and fine jewelry, Stephanie designs modern yet timelessly classic jewelry with purpose.
Having worked in product development and production for Harry Winston, Anna Sheffield, and Henri Bendel. Stephanie gained an invaluable appreciation for product innovation. Her creations are guided by her intuitive eye for beautiful design, her multifaceted wealth of knowledge, and her natural propensity for creativity.
Previously working with overseas vendors, one key element was missing — personal connection. When Stephanie joined a small, all-women team where New York was home to every aspect of jewelry production from inception to execution, she felt the unparalleled sense of connection she had been searching for. With Purpose was built on these core values.
