We are a small, woman-owned and -operated jewelry line that uses recycled materials sourced from fast fashion manufacturers. Metals are melted down and repurposed into thoughtfully, beautifully designed pieces to keep waste out of landfills and give old adornments new life.
Fast fashion mass produces trendy, disposable pieces that rarely last longer than a few seasons—a wasteful, environmentally damaging culture of consumption. Recognizing that an essential change in production and values was necessary, Tilly Doro reimagines a more sustainable model where jewelry is reusable and materials are recycled into new pieces.
Tilly Doro believes in thoughtful, responsible design with purpose. We use deadstock material and repurposed components to ensure less waste ends up in landfills. New pieces are designed and hand fabricated from recycled metals we melt, cast, and coat in 24k gold plating—all in the U.S.
“My grandmother Tilly was a Holocaust survivor. She taught us that nothing should be wasted or taken for granted. Her favorite gifts were the ones we made by hand and that value has stayed with me.”
Influenced by nature, symbols, asymmetry and balance, Tilly Doro jewelry reflects the spirit of the past within a modern aesthetic.
