The Virtue Necklace is our ode to the International Woman Sign and a piece dear to us as we advocate on behalf of every woman and her freedom. Their shape symbolizes our advocacy and our commitment to hope, dignity, and freedom for women.  The Virtue Necklace is a short necklace that can be worn no matter the occasion. The pendant is strung on a dainty chain and the necklace is handmade, with wire-wrapped closure. The necklace comes in two colorways, Brass or Silver Tone finish. Made in our Mumbai Sanctuary, this necklace is handcrafted with love and made to elevate your outfit everyday. 

This ethically handmade necklace support young women escaping human trafficking in India, Uganda, Mexico, and the Philippines. Each artisan receives fair wages, education, health care and community through our non-profit, International Sanctuary.

Included with your purchase of the brass Virtue Necklace will be a polishing cloth and instructions on how to keep your jewelry clean, dry, and polished. We love working with brass because it can be polished to shine–due to the nature of brass being just itself. Brass, when polished, can be a beautiful replacement for 14k gold jewelry.

    PURPOSE Jewelry Care Guide:

    Important Jewelry Care Note: Polishing your gold or silver plated jewelry will remove the plating from the piece. Only use a polishing cloth for your pieces that are 100% brass and are not plated.

    How to care for plated jewelry

    Plated jewelry is identical to a piece that would be entirely made up of a precious metal but does require more care to allow for the piece to not lose its plating. 

    • Apply perfume, hairspray or deodorant before wearing your jewelry as certain chemicals may damage the finish.
    • Always remove your jewelry before swimming, bathing, doing household chores or using abrasive cleaners.
    • If your jewelry requires further cleaning, use mild soap, water and a soft cloth. Rinse with clean water and pat dry.
    • Make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing.
    • To avoid black markings on your skin or the jewelry, be sure to regularly clean.
