About Our Products
Mo. Na. Gems has a mission of normalizing sustainable jewelry to show that it can be just as trendy & cute as resin jewelry. Not only does resin jewelry contribute to plastic pollution, it is also harmful to human health when making these resin pieces at home!
We use 100% natural, vegan, and nontoxic ingredients to craft our gems. We spent several months experimenting with different formulas until we found something with good aesthetic and mechanical properties. Our gems however, are not single use. They are relatively stable and will only decompose when exposed to microorganisms / water for an extended period of time. What this means is that our gems can degrade in landfills, be thrown out, and are compostable. No matter how you discard of them, they will break down. Isn't that so cool?!
