Sarah, a missionaries' daughter, said yes to creating a jewelry company that would employ young women who grew up at the children's home her parents helped to found and directed in Honduras. Three of these young women said yes to a part time job to launch the company. So in 2021, we began around a table on a porch in Honduras.
Alegria means JOY!
We are currently employing 7 young women full time in our (air-conditioned) office in Honduras handcrafting trendy, unique, high-quality jewelry that is sold online and in stores in the United States.
We proudly hand-craft every piece with hypoallergenic and generously plated or filled precious metals. Some pieces are solid sterling silver. Our crystals are polished glass, and won't cloud, darken or yellow. Our stones are genuine semi-precious and precious.
(aka our customers) are our heroes! Shopping our jewelry collection means jobs - it's that easy to empower talented, hard-working women in Honduras! Your shopping changes the lives of women and changes the trajectory of their families.
Are stores that carry our line! They have invested in inventory for their customers to shop and join the mission of creating jobs for women artisans in Honduras! We couldn't do what we do without these huge-hearted store owners and managers!
We are proudly Fair Trade Verified
