Mejuri is a leader in minimalist, sustainable jewelry—and its men’s collection continues to impress.

Mejuri pieces are ethically made, majority traceable, and help give back.

2. Brilliant Earth

TGT loves Brilliant Earth for their sustainability practices, like fully traceable gemstones and recycled precious metals. Their line of men’s necklaces are no exception, with ethically-sourced chains and customizeable pendants that will be the perfect, everyday piece for any dude. For a piece that will easily layer with any other necklaces, we love the Eli Figaro 24 In. Chain Necklace.

3. Apse

Best For | Chains with stone inlays

Washington state-based jewelry company Apse is one of our favorites for beautiful takes on classic, minimalist jewelry. With their made-to-order model and their use of recycled and responsibly sourced materials, the brand is a no-brainer for sustainable jewelry. We love their Basin Necklace, which they describe as “not just a chain, and not just a necklace.” Their signature chain is fitted with a stone inlay and an oversized elongated clasp, in sterling silver or 14K gold vermeil. Choose from pietersite, tiger’s eye, malachite, or hawk’s eye for a showstopping piece.

Automic Gold is one of the most sustainable and inclusive jewelry brands out there. This queer-led brand has diverse imagery, gender-fluid and unisex options, and a wide variety of sizes for its rings in particular. The One To One Chain, as a nod to the classic Figaro chain, is an investment piece designed with your choice of yellow, white, or rose gold, and is available in seven lengths. Everything’s made in-house in NYC, using certified recycled materials.

5. Sarah & Sebastian

Best For | Chains

Like all the brand’s jewelry, this will be sent to you in sustainable, recyclable packaging.
