Steven was no stranger to changing careers. After spending over two decades on Wall Street, he had also sought something new. Not long after the Great Recession of 2009, Steven co-founded a successful precious metals investment platform - an endeavor that exposed him to the unmatched beauty and potent investment power of physical gold.
Fast forward to 2016 when Steven asked Gina to . . . marry him? Nope. That comes later. In the late summer of 2016, Steven asked Gina to create a jewelry brand - a company that they could build together. One based on love, beauty and high karat gold. Gina agreed. A decade before Gina met Steven, she had started collecting 22 and 24 karat gold jewelry during her travels. What could be more exciting than designing modern, high karat gold jewelry for gold lovers like herself? In March 2017, she retired from the practice of law and commenced work on their project.
With her old life as a lawyer in the rearview mirror, Gina delved completely into the unexpected opportunity to create, alongside Steven, something even more precious and lasting than anything she had ever done before - jewelry made from True 22 and Pure 24 karat gold. They launched Auvere in October 2017.
And now for the marrying part! Steven asked Gina to marry him in the first month of 2019. He proposed to her in the same restaurant (and at the same table) where they shared their first date - the one that lasted seven hours. She said yes, of course. In May 2019, they wed in front of a small group of family and friends. Auvere was there as well. Gina wore the Arthropod Earrings Polished, Lunar Ear Cuff Polished and the Dagger Cuff. Steven wore the Double Barrel Ring Satin.
