Additionally, our material choices and production methods are representative of our dedication to build a more sustainable and ethical practice. 


Each bywayof piece is handcrafted in the historical jewelry district in Istanbul by generations of jewelers who are best at their craft. Our creations are the manifestation of aesthetics and experience. All of our pieces are made with sterling silver and comes in different finishes. We value honest craftsmanship and good design made with the best quality materials.

The pouches are made from 100% cotton and are sufficient to store your bywayof piece for years to come.
