TETHER IS QUALITY, INNOVATION, DEDICATION, INCLUSION
We're proud to stand for making the most inspired, highest quality, most ethically produced jewelry that we can, and this isn't a static statement; it's a daily practice.
QUALITY OF COMPONENTS AND FINISH
We design comfortable, long-lasting jewelry using casting and finishing processes that convey rich detail, texture, and luster.
We stand behind the build quality of our clickers and will put the longevity of our solid 14k gold threadless ends, with their ASTM-F138 implant grade pins, up against any other. We do happy customers, not broken pins.
INNOVATIONS IN DESIGN AND AESTHETIC
The founders and staff at Tether have a combined five peer-awarded industry innovation honors for body jewelry design and display. We are obsessed with the ways jewelry interacts with the body and environment.From closures to light play, every detail is purposeful.
Tether believes the most authentic form of self-expression is individual creativity. Within each of us lies a universe of unknown futures and endless possibilities. We adore the processes of discovery, design, and decoration as we work to manifest original body adornments inspired by our love of science, sci-fi, architecture, and technology. Our people delight in creating beautiful objects that encourage daydreaming and allow everyone to feel at home in their skin.
DEDICATION TO INDUSTRY AND SOCIETY
Tether is a force for good in the adornment industry and greater society. We support the continuing education of body adornment professionals through Business Member affiliation with the Association of Professional Piercers and our annual donations and attendance at the APP Conference & Exposition.
We maintain a commitment to environmental and social accountability, honoring people and places by using recycled precious metals and conflict-free gemstones.
We create gold jewelry from Responsible Jewellery Council-certified recycled gold alloys and source only from non-mining supply chains.
All Tether natural diamonds are conflict-free and conform to the guidelines of the Kimberley Process. Our jewelers only work with verifiable stone sellers who provide proof of their commitment in writing and won’t work with intermediaries.
INCLUSION OF ALL PEOPLES AND BODIES
We are inclusive of people from every place, of all identities, and of all body types and abilities. Adornment of self is universal and highly personal, and we are privileged to be trusted to accompany individuals on their aesthetic journey through life.
