Sustainable Fine Jewelry

"Investment worthy pieces should be both luxe in material and sustainably made. A consumer shouldn't have to compromise on either."

KBH Jewels is an NYC-based sustainable fine jewelry collection made from 100% reclaimed and recycled solid gold, cultivated luxury diamonds and sustainably cultured South Sea pearls.

Jewelry made as a true symbol of love and labor with a focus and commitment to clean material sourcing, circular practices from the ground up, quality and craftsmanship.

KBH believes love and tradition applies not only to their beautiful jewelry, but also the manner in which it is made and how that affects the world. Everything that KBH produces, supplies, and ships - from jewelry to packaging - is sourced from ethical, sustainable, and reclaimed methods.

If luxury means the best of everything - design, materials and craftsmanship - it also must mean what is best for the health of the world and all living things.

KBH has earned the praise of media including Vogue, Town & Country, Forbes, New York Magazine, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Robb Report, Goop, Brides, Oprah, Who What Wear, C California Style, The Chalkboard, People, The Zoe Report, and many more.

The designs have also gained an impressive following among celebrities like Kate Hudson, Molly Sims, Kate Mara, Jessica Alba, Elizabeth Banks, Rosario Dawson, Katie Couric, Veronica Webb, Olivia Culpo, Indya Moore, Camilla Belle, Ashley Graham, to name a few.

Kimberly Berry Haisch, Founder

“I wanted to create jewelry that serves as beautiful modern heirlooms, pieces that can be passed down to future generations. It is all about doing something for the world that my children are going to live in and eventually share with their own families. That is tradition; that is part of our legacy.

Family, tradition and incorporating circular practices and sustainable materials are at the heart of everything we do and embedded into the fabric of our story.

It’s not about being perfect, it’s about trying to do better.”

Kimberly was introduced to the jewelry industry at a young age by her mother, who had a passion for recreating and designing heirloom jewelry for friends and family, which eventually led to a small business of her own.

After graduating from Bucknell University in 2003, Kimberly followed in her father’s footsteps and started her career in finance. While realizing she enjoyed business and finance, she craved a more creative role.

Kimberly made her way to Bobbi Brown Cosmetics where she helped to oversee international marketing and launch the brand in global markets. During that time, she gained valuable exposure, working under Bobbi and other strong, career-driven women who supported each other to build businesses, while also raising their families.

Once starting her own family, Kimberly was reintroduced to lab diamonds, and learned about the vast pollution caused by metal mining. She saw a gap in the market for consumers who believe that sustainable materials and modern luxury are one and the same. Kimberly dedicated over a year to research and joined organizations in the sustainable sector to find partners in manufacturing and sourcing.

In the Fall of 2018, Kimberly launched KBH Jewels, a collection of beautiful, timeless, modern heirlooms - jewelry made as a true symbol of love and labor with a focus and commitment to clean material sourcing, circular practices from the ground up, quality and craftsmanship.

KBH has always been about so much more than selling jewelry. Kimberly is focused on leaving a legacy of timeless glamour while bringing responsibility and painstaking attention to sourcing and production.

KBH's vision is to make a long-term impact with tangible results. From upcycling plastic waste into the packaging, to choosing organic GOT fabrics for their pouches, each decision is an attempt to inject conscious sustainability into every area of business.

KBH is a proud member and supporter of Positive Luxury, Responsible Jewelry Council, Female Founder Collective, Ethical Metalsmiths, Earthworks, Pure Earth, Mercury Free Mining and MJSA. Additionally, KBH has partnered to support Baby2Baby, Susan G Komen, The Loveland Foundation, and Together Rising through seasonal campaigns.

Sustainable, Circular Materials

"KBH Jewels is setting a new luxury tradition for our generation and the standard for generations to come."

KBH diamonds are grown in highly controlled laboratory greenhouses. Grown diamonds are the result of innovative technology that is disrupting and introducing a new set of principles that brings responsible sourcing to the forefront of the jewelry industry. The end result is scientifically, physically, chemically and optically identical to mined diamonds without the devastation.

The diamonds that KBH designs with are sourced only from labs working towards a zero-carbon footprint, whose values align with our own. All KBH diamonds are of the highest quality: colorless - DEF, and VS (at minimum) in clarity.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Toxics Release Inventory, “metal mining is the nation’s #1 toxic polluter” and Earthworks states that mining is the biggest polluter in the USA, contributing to arsenic, mercury, and lead pollution.

Gold is one of Earth’s natural renewable resources that can be recycled without any quality degradation, so why are we mining for more?

KBH gold is never plated, filled or newly mined, and always 100% recycled and reclaimed 14k or 18k solid gold.

KBH’s Sustainable South Sea Pearl Collection is handcrafted from organic pearls cultivated by local South Sea farmers and artisans perfectly expressing the harmonious balance of beauty, heritage, respect and nature.

The sustainably cultured pearls that KBH designs with are harvested in season and sourced only from small sustainable south sea pearl farms that implement clean and circular practices throughout their farms and harvests. The best marine pearls come from pollution free waters.

When you purchase cultivated pearls from KBH Jewels, you are supporting these positive environmental and socio-economic initiatives that promote responsible pearl farming globally. This improves water quality, positively impacts coral reef conservation, reduces overfishing and supports local artisans and communities.
