Aurate is a NYC fine jewelry brand that ethically sources its materials and has Kerry Washington as an official backer. They have an extensive range of jewelry of the highest quality, prices you can’t beat, ethical practices, and the chicest design. The fine jewelry industry is notorious for its blood diamonds, sweatshops, and environmental harm. Aurate shuns all of this, opting for ethical and fair business practices and 100% recycled gold. Kerry Washington believes in the brand so much she became an investor!
I adore my Aurate pieces for their timeless, elegant look and almost never take them off.
- Uses 100% recycled gold to make incredible jewelry
Strict standards to ensure the ethical sourcing of their precious gems
Every piece of jewelry is designed and made in the USA
Every piece of jewelry is guaranteed for life

For the home enthusiast and sleep lover, the Bearaby Weighted Blanket looks beautiful and high-end and also induces better sleep and rest. I like to keep mine on the couch to cocoon while reading or watching Netflix. My friend loves sleeping with it at night because she no longer stirs from the blanket keeping her in one place throughout her sleep.

It feels like a much more technologically advanced way to apply my skincare on my face & neck vs a jade roller/fingers. There’s no turning it on and off – instead Velve activates automatically when pressed onto your skin. And for such a small light device it feels like high quality. Laduora aims to create premium quality yet affordable devices (Velve is $75) and soon will launch the world’s first pod-based hair and scalp care device.
