Betroth is a New York-based jewelry design studio that unites visionary creators, master craftsmen, and responsible practices to reimagine the commitment ring. Founded by designer and artist Derrick Cruz, Betroth provides a platform of mastery and trust to those hoping to create or possess magnificent jewelry.
I created Betroth for the passionate few that revel in the search for what's true—whether that manifests itself in love, art or journey.
I believe love's many forms and awesome presence redefines all else. It is an intimate journey that demands extraordinary markers.
By introducing you to artists that share your spirit, I want to help you rise above old norms. I want you to be inspired by new visions, masterful hands, innocent materials and noble means. In this way, we hope to capture the personality and essence of your vulnerable, but matchless expression of love. – Derrick Cruz
