Our Heart Tribe
We are on a heart-based mission to spread visible love worldwide. Our jewelry is handcrafted in Northern California, and we give back with every purchase.
Our Signature piece, a large heart, was designed to radiate love. The initial response was overwhelming. More than a conversation starter, the necklace created an opportunity for warm compliments, genuine connection, and heart-centered dialogue. Our Collective Hearts jewelry started a movement, and seemingly overnight, a heart tribe of love warriors was born.
Collective Hearts is women-founded and led. Co-founders Lisa Rueff and Jennifer Freas met serendipitously. Lisa had always felt a calling to spread love and lift people up, particularly when they're in search of answers and optimism. Jennifer was seeking a business role with purpose and looking to do something with an impact, something that would make a difference in the world. Through their shared love of quality jewelry and a desire to spread kindness and joy, they teamed up through Collective Hearts.
We've met so many incredible people along this journey, and we've appreciated every story they've shared of what our jewelry means to them, to a friend, or to a loved one. Our pieces have been a conduit for meaning, celebrations, honoring a life, and feeling close to one another. We are extremely thankful for your love and support, and for sharing your individual journeys with us.
