d'Francisco's Genderless Sustainable Jewelry Is This Summer's Hottest Staple
They prioritize sustainability by using pure 925 recycled silver, recovered from sources including jewelry, X-ray films, electronics and more—and here's everything you should know about the brand.
d'Francisco was created by Camila Montoya and her mother, Liliana, who set out to develop jewelry that wasn't just beautiful, but also good for the planet. In addition to using 925 recycled silver, the mother-daughter duo also incorporated 3D-printing technology in order to reduce wax waste and water and electricity usage, designing gorgeous pieces inspired by the country of Colombia.
Liliana was actually a dentist in Colombia before moving to the U.S., where she became passionate about the jewelry industry. She was fascinated by the creative process and took classes to learn to work with metals, stones and many other recyclable materials. She soon discovered that her dentistry knowledge translated well to this new industry, since the 3D printing process resembled the casting of teeth. Camila also found a love for jewelry-making over time, joining her mother in her weekly classes once she, too, moved to the states. Camila recently explained that her mother is, "the best partner I can ever imagine."
So far, d'Francisco has created two different jewelry lines inspiring empowerment, confidence and self-love, encouraging customers to "connect people to the planet." Their first line, "Welcome to the Trópico," used the symbol of a beetle to represent Colombia's biodiversity and generate awareness of respect for all living things. The second, "Into the WILD," incorporated jaguars and palms, inspiring the feeling of being unstoppable, outspokenness and passionate. Camila described "Into the WILD" as their most empowering line yet, and we couldn't agree more.
