VK Designs Responsible Jewelry was launched by goldsmith Valerie Kasinskas in 2005. The creative duo behind VK Designs are identical twins sisters Valerie and Rachel.
All designs by VK Designs are hand made by Valerie or Rachel in our Portland, OR studio.
Their distinct jewelry is handcrafted from responsibly-sourced materials. They are dedicated to creating unique designs featuring recycled and FAIRMINED™ metals, and ethically sourced gemstones. They create CUSTOM JEWELRY as well as offer a line of READY-TO-WEAR daily jewelry.
VK Designs uses recycled and ethically-sourced metals, as well as certified conflict-free gemstones and diamonds. They donate a portion of profits every year to organizations that support ethical practices in the field of jewelry and mining, including EARTHWORKS, and ETHICAL METALSMITHS.
Their mantra is to make each day better than the one before.
