Why did we choose to use Morse Code?
We love the history of New York because we were founded here. Samuel F. B. Morse helped establish Morse Code while residing in our great city. We liked the idea of mixing jewelry and history. Learn more about Morse Code at the bottom of this page,
International Morse Code can spell out a word without using any characters or symbols from traditional established languages. For example, the word “meditate” can often be symbolized using the “Om” sign, but that symbol has deep connection with Hinduism. Since we respect all cultures, religions, and schools of thought, we wanted to offer an inspirational and meaningful type of jewelry that all people could keep close to their hearts. Morse Code is a universal language that speaks – in dots and dashes – to everyone.
It’s beautifully simple, and every word has its own unique combination of dots and dashes. Our jewelry looks beautiful on all skin tones and body types. It is simply elegant, and can be worn for any occasion.
