why shop gldn grl?

about gldn grl

gldn grl was founded in October 2020 with the purpose of raising awareness and funds for women's reproductive and mental health issues. Specifically, our goal is to help people like our founder Summar, women and their supporters, to understand more about women’s health issues such as endometriosis. As women, we have historically faced hurdles when it comes to our healthcare, and continue to. Our pieces are meant to empower you and help you find a little bit of gldn in your day everyday. Five dollars from every sale is donated to The Endometriosis Network of Canada to help warriors with their fight against the invisible chronic illness. 

our jewelry 

Our jewelry is hand picked for its style, simplicity and meaning. Summar hand assembles some of the necklaces and bracelets, and outsources the rings and earrings ensuring quality before selling any products. 

All of our pieces are either gold/rhodium plated or filled or sterling silver to ensure a longer lasting finish that you can wear daily.

our founder

I, Summar, have struggled with women's health for over 10 years, allowing me to bring a personal sentiment to the brand. I have been diagnosed with endometriosis, vulvodynia, an ovarian cyst, a bilateral uterus as well as three chronic mental health issues. Read more about my story here

My education includes a Public Relations certificate from Algonquin College and undergraduate degree from Queen's University which has helped me launch my brand successfully. I am currently completing Parsons' Fashion Industry Essentials certificate program as well. 

Jewelry has always been a huge part of my lifestyle. I associates meaning to each piece I wear and rarely take them off. They’re a part of me. 

I hope that when purchasing a piece, you know that you are making a difference and wear it as a reminder to keep trying to find that little bit of gld everyday, no matter what battle you may be fighting. gldn grl is not just for those who struggle with endo or women's health, but those who believe in bettering themselves and those around them for the good of society. 
 

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to read about gldn grl and my story. It really does mean so very much.
