WHO WE ARE
In 2016, a group of passionate friends came together with a simple idea - create beautiful jewelry that gives a voice to the stories inside us, empowering its wearer and the global community she is a part of. Together, they created Proverb, a unique jewelry line to both inspire and assist--compassion and empathy in a beautiful, tangible gesture.
We believe that every life is a Proverb, and every life story deserves to be told with grace and power. From the beginning of our journey, we have partnered with Prajwala Foundation, a pioneering anti-trafficking organization in South India dedicated to the issue of sex trafficking and sex crime, and the empowerment of women and girls.
Proverb Jewelry donates 10% of proceeds from every purchase to Prajwala, to assist their efforts to ensure holistic victim services in India and internationally.
Whether purchased as a gift for yourself or another, each Proverb piece is a visible reminder of the inner beauty at the heart of every life story, and the empowerment that is born from compassion. Created for a lifetime, each piece is ethically sourced with the finest materials— designed, crafted, and packaged with care, intention, and meticulous attention to detail.
Every life is a proverb.
As Proverb began its journey in 2016, we desired to take our passion for tasteful jewelry and creativity to task as a force for powerful good in our home and global communities. After much research and discovery about the core issues facing women and girls internationally, and the work being done to serve them, it became abundantly clear that nothing meant more to our family and brand than joining the international fight to rescue, protect and empower the millions of innocent women and children affected by exploitation each year.
Proverb Jewelry has teamed up with Sunitha Krishnan, the founder of Prajwala Foundation, to allow our customers to support global empowerment of women and children in a meaningful way. For the past decade, Prajwala (meaning “eternal flame”) has established itself in India and internationally as a powerful voice for women’s rights through its five pillars: Prevention, Protection, Rescue, Rehabilitation & Reintegration. We are honored to partner with Prajwala, and proudly donate 10% of proceeds from every purchase directly to the foundation.
