When it comes to adding schnizzle to our look with a snazzy piece of jewelry, there’s no need to break the bank or deplete Mama Earth’s natural resources. I’ve been testing a fabulous, versatile pair of earrings by Color by Amber. What I like about them is how lightweight and neutral they are – so easy to pair with either a little black dress or casual jeans & sandals. They’re made of a cool nontoxic material called Ecoresin, which contains 40 percent recycled material. Natural elements like bamboo, grass and leaves are woven into some warm & earthy collections, while silk and mohair are incorporated in their cool & sleek collections. They’re designed to fit all lifestyles and tastes — from surfers and soccer moms to boardroom execs … and they’re a neat way to not only make an eco-fashion statement but also help women around the world improve their lives.

They have real hand spun Tibetan silk and a soft gray fabric encased within the Eco Resin; sterling silver pierced loops. They’re a beautiful shade of gray accented with white, and they measure 3.5 inches in length – perfect for someone with an elegant, slender neck.

backstory - Color by Amber is a sustainable jewelry company that sources raw materials from around the world but creates their striking lines right here in the USA. Through their Full Circle program, women artisans from around the world receive fair-trade wage and benefits, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of their work helps fund vital infrastructure and training projects to their local communities.

Founded by Talley Goodson, she keeps it real from the ground-up – their facility is certified carbon neutral and they partner with Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue Sky Program and Bonneville Environmental Foundation to offset their energy use. Added perk – Color By Amber gives back, contributing a portion of profits to 1% for the Planet.

full disclosure: I received a complimentary pair of earrings for the purposes of a no-strings-attached Tried and True Green Product Review.
