We believe that the hand made details in our work are what makes it so special. Our hands are human not robotic, they are our most precious tool and we belive the intricacies of handmade work should be valued and adored.
CUT AND INLAID STONE
All the stones in YITM jewelry are hand selected and inlaid by founder, Mariele Ivy in our Denver studio. The most important part of the work could never be outsourced. The fine inlay work is our pride and joy. The large inlay bracelets that Mariele creates are examples of the fine craftsmanship that she brings to all of the fine inlay work. .

HAND SELECTED STONES
Since our stones are sourced in their raw and original forms, and often from miners around the country, YITM can offer colors, patterns and hues that change with the seasons.
RESPONSILBY SOURCED MATERIALS
Respect for nature and the honor and care of our planet is a pillar of YITM. Not only does each piece feature RECYCLED gold and sterling silver, most of our inlay materials are source direct from the miners and of course all diamonds featured in YITM jewelry are certified conflict free.
YIM jewelry is fabricated not cast, meaning that instead of soft wax, each piece starts out as metal wires and sheets. Using our skills as silver and goldsmiths, we use a torch to solder and build each piece by hand. This method is more time consuming but it demonstrates our skills as a craftspeople and artists, not just designers. We make what we design in our studio from start to finish.
