"Love this ring, however"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this ring, it is stylish and simple. I have received lots of compliments on it. However, the stone fell out (thankfully while I was driving so I was able to save the stone). I only wear it on special occasions, take it off when I wash my hands, and store it in my jewelry box. I now have to find glue that will not damage the beautiful stone since jade is porous. I still love it and would have given 5 stars except for the stone falling out (which really should not happen).

"Beautiful jade earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The picture was very nice, but the earrings are much better in real! Perfect finishing, quality of material and handiwork is spotless, and we received the package from Central America just under a week from placing the order. Love the earrings, and we will definitely come back to the catalog for more!

Best Uses

  • Everyday wear as well as special occasions

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

From a humble artist to a respected member of her community, Zandra captures the spirit of the Women's Empowerment badge. "After my husband died in 2017, I knew I would need to provide for my three children. I've made their education my top priority and plan to send each of them to university. I have also welcomed helpers into my workshop, and support them with fair wages," she says.

Zandra started off as a humble artisan with a strong passion. Since her start with NOVICA, she has been able to grow her workshop and achieve more than she thought possible. She is able to support her children, create jobs in her community, and has become one of the most respected artisans in her city.

Zandra Lorena Sajbin has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1050 and the most recent for $3500. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of more silver, jade and tools so she can develop her new designs.

Zandra lost her husband in 2017 and she is now the sole provider for her three children, Fabricio, Alejandro and Dulce. Through her jade jewelry art, she is able to support her children and increase their livelihood.

Zandra financially supports her three children's education and plans to send the three of them to university as well.

This artist positively impacts their community through job creation and provides jobs for 2 or more people.
