BEHIND THE DESIGN | A Note from Christine
I was recently gifted an heirloom ring from my husband's Grandma and as I sat down to restore it to its full brilliance, I felt a deep conviction to continue growing and creating special pieces that last forever and can be passed from one generation to the next.
The Opal Stud is crafted with recycled solid 14k gold and ethically sourced, genuine Australian Opals.
I chose such precious materials because they will stand the test of time and are worthy of being passed on in the years to come. I hope they bring you joy today and that the quiet, fiery design of an opal reminds you of your own inner vibrance.
Dear Survivor is fully committed to sustainable and ethical practices. That’s why we use recycled and Earth-friendly materials and donate a portion of each sale to fight against human trafficking.
There’s power in the consumer market.
Let’s use it for good.

Dear Survivor is an LA based sustainable fashion brand founded by designer Christine Howell in 2015. Our collection has ranged from leather purses to fun and fine jewelry, but our purpose has always remained the same: to prove that the consumer market can be a powerful place to create positive change. We do this through our three main tenants - empowering survivors, sustainable design, and ethical manufacturing.
For us, sustainability means designing with scrap materials. Rather than letting perfectly good material go to waste, we are giving it a second life as jewelry.
Since day one, we’ve donated a portion of every sale to GenerateHope and their fight against human trafficking. With your support, we’ve donated over $30,000 to their restorative programs.
We’ve searched far and wide for the best manufacturing partners the US has to offer. Learn more about our partnership with Refugee Artisan Initiative and our LA factory here!
