What We Love
The bounciest, chewiest, pearliest gumball of them all. Like biting into a piece of childhood candy, an instant lick of cheer! Inspired by a 25¢ vending machine ring, and my grandmother’s pearl ring (hi it’s Leigh!), we set out to make something big, full of volume and joy, that was exceedingly easier to wear. And, the Gumball has a secret to share: it spins. We love the Gumball on it’s own, in a stack, or even on a chain. We think you’re going to love it, too!
The pearls in the Catbird collection are sourced from a second generation family farm where an emphasis is placed on clean water; freshwater pearl cultivation does not require the introduction of heavy chemicals into the water stream. The pearls used in our Gumball Pearl Rings and Charms have a high luster nacre with minor spots or dimples that do not affect the durability of a pearl and are very common — nature has made them perfectly imperfect.
Made in our Brooklyn studio with 100% recycled solid 14k gold and only available at Catbird.

The Golden Rule of Pearl Care: "Last Thing On First Thing Off". Pearls are more vulnerable to the chemicals found in cosmetics, hair spray, hair dye, and perfume. And pearls do NOT like chlorine - neither in swimming pools or even regular showers. Pearls should ONLY be cleaned with a soft cloth moistened with water and the little bit of ivory soap.
Catbird jewelry is made with love in our Brooklyn studio and with the help of a few trusted partners using over 95% recycled gold, 95% recycled diamonds, and ethically sourced precious stones.
