Our Heart Tribe
We are on a heart-based mission to spread visible love worldwide. Our jewelry is handcrafted in California and we give back with every purchase.
Our signature piece, a large heart, was created to radiate love. The initial response was overwhelming. More than a conversation starter, the necklace creates an opportunity for warm compliments, true connection, and heart-centered conversation. The Collective Hearts jewelry started a movement and seemingly overnight a heart tribe of love warriors was born.
Women founded and led. Co-founders Lisa Rueff and Jennifer Freas met serendipitously. Lisa has always felt a calling to lifting people up and spreading love, especially at the time when people were searching for answers and optimism. Jennifer was ready for her next business role to be purposeful, to do something with an impact, something that would make a difference in the world. They both share a love for jewelry and understand the simple power of symbols and quality gifts that can be worn and that are long lasting.
We've met so many incredible people along this journey, and they have shared numerous touching stories of what the jewelry means to them, to a friend, or loved one. Our pieces have been a conduit for celebrations, honoring a life, and feeling close to another. We are extremely thankful for your love and support and for sharing your journeys with us.
