Enji’s Top Holiday Gifts For The Family:  Part 2

Blog

I’m Niki, the founder and designer of Enji Studio Jewelry. We’re a sustainable luxury jewelry brand based in beautiful north county San Diego.

at Enji we’re on a mission to bring you meaningful, modern, ethical design that shows off your style, honors the journey of your life, and reflects your values. We craft each piece for you in our Carlsbad studio bringing new life to recycled gold and silver and using only FairTrade and ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones.

Enji was founded in 2014. We take steps toward positive change in our industry by practicing ethical sourcing and manufacturing and giving back to the local and global community. We create our pieces for everyday wear.

Enji is about modern, minimal design that is made ethically and sustainably and gives back to the community. As creators and consumers, our choices now have a global impact. This is why we consider how things are made to be important and this to be part of our responsibility as a business and global citizen. As a designer and jeweler, I only work with suppliers that share this view. This is why we make all of my pieces using only recycled gold and silver, ethically sourced and fairtrade stones, chains and findings that are made in the USA and Italy, and packaging and marketing materials made using recycled paper and clothing.

Niki is a GIA Graduate Jeweler. She was awarded the 2016 Halstead Grant Award and 2014 Windgate Fellowship Award by the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design. She has exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and Europe and her work can be seen in the pages of Glamour UK, Basic, Evening Standard, National Jeweler, and more.

As a member of Ethical Metalsmiths, we hope to be among the first movers bringing transparency and sustainable practices into the luxury fashion jewelry world. Ethical Metalsmiths and Fairmined gold and gems.  All our pieces are made in our studio in San Diego and we use low-impact, environmentally conscious studio practices to lessen our footprint. 

We take steps toward positive change in our industry by practicing ethical sourcing and manufacturing, because it’s important. To us, to you, to the women and men who mined the stones we use to create our pieces. We also donate a portion of each sale to organizations that help empower women locally and globally and work to end domestic violence and human trafficking because that’s part of the future we want to see.

Enji’s Top Holiday Gifts For The Family: Part 2

Hilda Chang

Today we tackle part two of Enji’s top holiday picks for family. Last week we focused on the strong women of your life and today we want to switch the focus to the men. Whether this means paying tribute to your best friend, or your high school teacher who never gave up on you, there is a guy out there who supported all your endeavors. As we all know men tend to be a little more difficult to shop for simply because of the overabundance of women’s gifts in stores. To help prevent you from running all over town, we have put together a list of male centered stores to find that perfect gift for him, each based in California to ensure that your gift comes in time for the holidays. There is something for every kind of guy in this list and we are sure there is at least something he will appreciate.

Hemp T Shirt Save The Humans Blue

This silly shirt is for your best guy friend who always makes you laugh. The phrase is a tongue-and-cheek play on the save the whales movement from the 70’s to help raise awareness that humans might be the first species to cause their own extinction. Made from 60% viscose hemp and 40% organic cotton, every thread is eco-friendly and silky soft. I personally love how quirky and fun it is and for $36 it is just as affordable as other fast fashion t-shirts.
