This queer-owned fine jewelry brand offers ring sizes up to a 16

In a time where we can all use some glitter and rainbows, Pride is right around the corner. And while Pride celebrations have changed due to the George Floyd protests and the Coronavirus pandemic, we can support inclusive trans and lesbian-owned jewelry brand Automic Gold.

Inclusion is at the core of Al Sandimirova’s fine jewelry brand. But being the only jewelry retailer to serve shoppers a wide ring size range of 2-16, isn’t the only thing that makes this brand stand out. The brand also uses a diverse group of queer models, representing a vast range of sizes, races and gender expressions, to reflect its overall mission of the LGBTQ community and pride. Automic Gold goes as far as reminding customers on its site that less than one percent of small businesses are LGBTQIA-owned and barely two percent of businesses are owned by transgender people.

“I really care about inclusivity because this is how I see the world,” Al told PBS in a 2017 interview. “As a genderqueer person, I never shop by the specific gender. I always shop with both genders.”

With Al and their team of jewelry designers, some seriously atomic gold is produced. Minimalist jewelry lovers can appreciate the simplistic, yet sophisticated “Line” or “Bar” earring and those who like a little more edge can enjoy pieces like the “Circle Threader” or the super extra “Extender“. Plus, with earrings at Automic Gold, you can shop ear jewelry as a single earring or as a pair.

This queer-owned brand also offers everything from initial charms and necklace chains to an entire birthstone collection. And what would this fine jewelry line be without wedding bands? The brand even stocks its full range of wedding rings in quarter and half-sizes in four different colors. Plus, you can even engrave up to 30 characters to make your wedding band truly special and custom.

If you’re looking for something either cute and minimalist or out there and loud, give your coin to this small, queer-owned brand, and shop some of the coolest designs below:
