About Dogeared

Dogeared Jewels and Gifts has been handcrafting jewelry in California since 1991. They are a company rooted in kindness and consciousness, with a goal of creating an ever-expanding circle of good karma. Through their cool, California aesthetic and happy, hopeful messages, Dogeared creates jewelry with a story to tell… and gives people around the world the opportunity to be part of it.

We became a B Corporation when we realized that Dogeared was already upholding the values and business practices set forth in the B Corporation model. Becoming certified gave us measurable standards and helped us set new company goals and initiatives.
