The 4 Day Work Week

It’s not a secret that we live in a society of morbid capitalism. Companies seem to only value the bottom line, without a care for how they get there or who got them there. Similarly, it has become the societal standard for employees to devalue themselves. Judging and grading their worth, on both a professional and personal level, by how hard they can push their limits and churn out results. The covid-19 pandemic has forced both companies and workers alike to re-evaluate their priorities and re-work the system. Being forced to work from home greatly disrupted what little work-life balance most employees had, with a large number of employees across the nation underreporting their work hours while working considerably longer shifts. With most companies returning to the office with their employees already in the...

Jewelry Care Guide

Gold jewelry is the perfect fusion of mother nature's beauty with human creativity and craftsmanship. In order to keep our jewelry as sparkly as it's meant to be, here are some tips on how to clean and care for your pieces:

Plain Gold Jewelry:

Automic gold jewelry is made with solid 14 karat gold that isn’t afraid of water or chemicals and could be kept on 24/7. 

Cleaning your solid gold jewelry is super simple:

Using either a soft brush or a soft cloth, gently scrub your jewelry with mild soap and water

For tough messes, you can soak your plain gold jewelry overnight in a cup of soapy water.

Gold and Diamonds:

Diamonds are tough babes, literally. Diamond is THE hardest mineral on earth and can only be scratched by another diamond. Working out, hanging out, washing your hands or...

Understanding Opals

Opals are beautiful, colorful, and precious in more ways than one. They also come from all over the world, with the majority of stones coming out of Australia, followed by Ethiopia. Even though all opals have the same general chemical framework, the origin of the stone matters. At Automic Gold, we only use ethically mined Australian opals for our jewelry because they are non-porous, can get wet, and are stronger than opals from other sources.

But what exactly IS an Opal?


Opals are a gorgeous natural gemstone beloved for their play-of-color and iridescence and are made of hydrous silicon dioxide. Opals are a fascinating stone in that they technically don’t have a definitive chemical composition. The chemical makeup of opal changes from stone to stone because the amount of water in each stone varies. The internal structure of opals is regularly packed...

How To Find Your Right Size

Here is an easy guide to finding what your size is for your future rings, bracelets, and anklets.
How to find your ring size:
Make sure to tighten the sizer after your knuckle for a more accurate size.
For the double digits on the ring sizer, here is a break down:
How to find your bracelet size:
Once you measure the size of your wrist, measure it again, but add a finger in place to get the new size. This way, your bracelet won't be too tight or too loose.

Lovely Luna

Ever wondered about the pup that makes an appearance on Automic Gold? Well, her name is Luna and she's the one that runs the show.

Even though she stands a few inches off the ground, don't be fooled by her loud roar of protection. This 15 pound, mini dachshund is ready for anything that comes her way.

At only 2 years old, this NYC based pup likes to lounge in her jammies and snack all day. When she's not in her PJ's she loves to put on a doggy fashion show. Timid at first, but once you get to know her, she's as sweet as can be!

Queer Businesses To Throw Your Money At

Only after starting my own brand, I understood how hard it is to "make it" in the world with huge corporations and even bigger investments. Only after that I stopped (ok, 90% stopped) to shop with classical retail system and I am trying to shop only with independent artists and brands. Because now I know from the inside out how hard they work and how much more they care not just about the bottom line.

Why We Don't Take Investment Money

Here's something we’ve never talked about before.

We committed from the beginning not to take investments for Automic Gold. We made this commitment consciously so that we will never have to compromise our standards for numbers.

This decision comes grounded in experiences where we saw how investor funds can pressure one into being profitable over being a business that aims for good. 

And yes, it does make things difficult for us. Often we can't afford to hire more people or to be in more locations. We have to wait until we sell our current collection before we have enough funds to make a new one. If we had more investments - we could have already launched so many more things,

But, thanks to your continuous support, we know we will get there soon.

"Automic Gold is queer run jewelry built on transparency and honesty.

One photo is retouched. One is raw. When the innovators behind this brand showed me the photos from our collaboration, fear rose up inside of me because I could see that they were intent on putting out photos that revealed acne and dark spots as a means of holding true to their mission statement.

When authenticity is the mission, sometimes showing up raw is the best way to say that its ok to come with imperfections. When people have negative things to say about a person’s physical appearance in it’s realest and rawest, it actually reflects on their own false standards for beauty.

That is why I think brands like Automic Gold should be uplifted. They remind me why I got into this business in the first place. You are all beautiful.. You are...
