Meet Our Elephant, Flora!

How many jewelry companies do you know that have a vested interest in the care and well being of an orphaned elephant? One of our customers brought this sanctuary to our attention in 2016. At the time we didn't have the means to support her, but as our business grew in 2017 we decided to commit to her long term care and habitat! 


Flora lives at The Elephant Sanctuary located in Hohenwald, TN. The Sanctuary provides lifetime care to elephants retired from performance and exhibition, many of whom suffer long-term health and behavioral issues common to aging captive elephants.

Flora has had quite a colorful life up to her arrival at the sanctuary and even starred in several movies including a documentary film titled One Lucky Elephant.

We're hoping to meet Flora face to face soon! Every year the sanctuary has a fund raiser and call to action for volunteers to come in and clean the habitat. Read more about THE ELEPHANT SANCTUARY
