Afro-Caribbean Inspired Jewelry

Hello and welcome to Root & Hope. Sit back, relax, and stay a while.

I am Ruth, avid earring collector and wearer. I share my heritage with people like Patra, Lady Saw, and Louise Bennett. Root and Hope was created in New Jersey and heavily influenced by the “Roots, Rock, Reggae!” of Jamaica, the country I call home.

Root & Hope offers handmade jewelry for everyone who wishes to have their culture identified and represented. Jewelry, one of the most visible accessories can whisper quietly or speak loudly. It is easily seen and can express aspects of the wearer that describes a part of their culture or group they belong to. Have you ever spotted a piece of jewelry on someone and it has that universally identifiable red, gold, and green? That feeling of solidarity that you get, that’s the goal of Root & Hope. I call that cultural intuition, when you see it you just know. I want my jewelry to resonate with you. With Root & Hope, your tribe can pick you out of the crowd, make you feel seen, and embrace you completely. Root & Hope was established in 2011 out of my love of wearing and collecting earrings. Today, I offer Afro-Caribbean inspired jewelry for you to own and feel proud to wear.

Walk good,
Ruth

Additional policies and FAQs
Consistency is always the goal in the jewelry I make. Variation is sometimes to be expected because items are original and handmade. Slight imperfections and the aforementioned variation is what adds to the charm of one of a kind items.

Like with any jewelry, mass produced or hand-made, great care should be taken when wearing or storing your Root & Hope jewelry. While you may want to be adorned while taking part in vigorous activities such as wrestling bears, white water rafting or sparring a few rounds with some sort of mixed martial artist, Root & Hope does not recommend wearing your jewelry at these particular times.

Items are durable, when properly taken care of.

A note on feedback:

As a seller on Etsy, feedback is very important to me, positive or otherwise. Feedback allows me get a glimpse of how buyers feel about the products that I sell to them. It also allows other shoppers to see if I am a good seller and it they want to make the decision to buy from my shop. As I get each order, I make sure to go through each step of fulfilling the order so my customer will be satisfied, will possibly become a returning customer, and even recommend my shop to other potential customers.
