Automic Gold

Wives Al and Kiera (they/them) are revolutionizing jewelry and making it, in their own words, “racially inclusive.” Automic Gold jewelry is intentionally not branded as unisex. Instead, they’re meant to be a fashion statement that bends the ideas of what is feminine, masculine, and everything in between. Their pieces are simply designed and perfect for everyday wear. Every item in their collection is available in plus sizes (currently, the only fine jewelry brand in the world to do so).

Pyramid Seven

Mashable named Pyramid Seven “one of 30 innovations that made 2017 a better place.” They provide leak-resistant boxer briefs that are designed for periods instead of gender. Before Zipporah Jarmon created Pyramid Seven, there was a huge disparity in underwear created for menstruators. There simply weren’t options for those who don’t identify as female or prefer not to wear feminine undergarments. The underwear has an interior pocket to secure pads or liners for extra protection.
