Foundrae’s Modern Heirlooms
Foundrae, co-founded by wife-husband team Beth Bugdaycay and Murat, is a collection of modern heirlooms designed with intention, symbolism, and spiritual manifestation by incorporating inspiration from the Greek alphabet, Egyptian mythology, Chinese elements, and more. Foundrae forges the path for laid back luxury with the use of precious metals, diamonds, and gemstones.
With specific attention to sustainability and craftsmanship, Foundrae’s pieces are made of 100% recycled gold and re-refined precious metals. In homage to the birthplace of Foundrae in New York City, all of their pieces are assembled and finished by their in-house studio in Tribeca.
