My name is Derrick Cruz, founder of Betroth, and I believe in the power of symbols. I've been a jewelry designer for over a decade -- always trying to turn wearable things into contemporary archetypes to help us navigate our place in time. I've experienced many successes and failures in that regard, but at every step of the way only my relationship with my life partner has stood the test of all efforts -- even when my ideas edged on madness. A few years ago I began hearing the same story from you. You reached out to me hoping I could put that same conviction into creating symbols that would represent your passion for your relationships. It's been an honor every time. But I realized one thing: there are many out there I can't aesthetically speak for, conscientious people also longing for a meaningful object to signal their journey as a couple. Lucky for you and me, I've met and continue to meet many incredible creatives that are as committed to the power of design as I am. And though the majority of them have zero experience in jewelry, they're masters of their own craft. I staunchly believe they can help tell your modern story -- with my help to make the rings 😉. That's why I created Betroth. It's the culmination of all of my experience and love for good design, fine craftsmanship, storytelling and responsible practices. With Betroth, I intend to empower these amazing contemporary talents with everything I know of jewelry to create rings that will help you reflect on your personal evolution as a result of the love you've shared with another.
