Heritage Designs was born from a sense of pride in U.P. heritage and a search for high quality materials to showcase those roots.



My name is Rachel and I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan. Our community is unlike anything you’ve seen before; we are a small-town, close-knit family that is extremely proud of our heritage. So proud that we wear the symbol of the U.P. on everything – shirts, decals, hats, tattoos, and most of all, jewelry.

The creation of Heritage Designs Jewelry started with my own hunger for individuality. The frustration for me was that most of the U.P. jewelry I owned showcasing my heritage was either the same as everyone else’s or it was made of sterling, which as we all know, tarnishes and doesn’t last. Being a creator, I wanted to invent something new, something different, and something made of superior materials that would last for generations. I started designing my own jewelry collection; a collection of stacking rings that are exquisitely unique, versatile, durable, and elegant.

My jewelry is made of 14 karat gold and is completely customizable to represent your favorite and most memorable features of the community. I offer yellow, white, and rose gold, with optional stones for extra luxe. You can mix and match bands to your liking, connecting them together like a puzzle, resulting in a set as unique as you are. I offer diamonds to represent the crystalline snow and stars, and sapphires to represent the great lakes. 



What sets us apart from other jewelry companies is the story behind our products, as well as the exclusivity of our patented designs. Each product, whether it is a stackable jewelry set or necklace, has sentimentality behind each handmade design. This sentimentality is what makes our company shine; the chance to connect to our customers makes Heritage Designs not just a business, but the chance to be part of someone else’s story. 

If you are looking for a unique, sentimental, and elegant gift that captures your roots, Heritage Designs offers something for everyone. Whether that’s showcasing your heritage through jewelry, or honoring a veteran’s journey through our sister company, Heritage Designs Knives; we can’t wait to be part of your story.
