Founded by Meredith Christine and Michael Murphy, Fool’s Gold set out to challenge the current jewelry and fashion industries. Using alternative materials to the standard diamonds, gemstones and gold, and working closely with suppliers to ensure sustainable and ethical sourcing, they’ve developed a modern line of jewelry that exists in harmony with both people and the planet.

Meredith derives inspiration from her background in architecture, her experiences traveling, and the serenity she finds in nature. Her work interprets the rich natural and cultural environments she encounters into a singular aesthetic: a rawness balanced with elements of art, architecture and design.
