Maximizing Wear, Minimizing Waste

SHOP sustainably

We're here to do good, not just look good.

nunchi is a Korean concept that describes one's innate awareness of and connection to society. For us, sustainability is threefold. It means community, change, and equity for all.


nunchi Is Our Mantra


Stackable everyday essentials

Stackable everyday essentials


Recycled Metals Only

All our fine jewelry is made from "old" gold and silver, melted down from scraps and leftovers. What others trash, we convert to treasure.

Ethical Sourcing

The vendors and suppliers we work with are internally vetted and audited. Mining-free and conflict-free is our motto.

Low Waste Movement

Everything from production to packaging is designed to minimize waste and impact to the environment.

Let's Redefine Luxury

The luxury industry has ignored and used women of color as marketing ploys for far too long. We are not tokens and we defy traditional standards. As women of color with immigrant roots, our core values guide both our mission and vision for nunchi.

Luxury should be diversely represented. Luxury should be sustainable. Luxury should be purposeful.

nunchi not only strives for these ideals, it is a product of them.

Born and Raised in NYC

Everything you see is sustainably made of 100% recycled metals and handcrafted by family-owned and immigrant-owned small businesses based right here in NYC. Every piece is an homage to local craftmanship and New York heritage.

You Design It. We Bring It To Life.

Whether you have a jewelry design in mind or want to upcycle an heirloom piece, we turn your vision into reality.
