Our team deeply values sustainability, and we prioritize reusing precious materials already available aboveground. We utilize the highest quality recycled gold, and our diamonds are reclaimed from estate jewelry whenever possible. Sophie and the team are passionate about Old Mine Cut and Old European Cut antique diamonds, hand-cut centuries ago and cherished for their distinctive look.
Sophie had her first taste of jewelry-making growing up on the Maine coast, and found that using her hands to build precious, wearable sculpture deeply resonated with her. Following receipt of her BFA in Metalsmithing from MassArt, she launched her eponymous jewelry line in 2009, and Ore shortly thereafter.
Ore is a curated boutique of independently-designed fine jewelry, championing female designers in particular. As with Sophie’s work, each piece of jewelry at Ore has been thoughtfully crafted in limited quantities.
