“Our vision is that together, we can all make a difference, if we look after nature, nature will look after us. This is why we care so passionately about making a difference and spreading awareness so that we can all create a better world for future generations.“
We pride ourselves on our eco-friendly practices when creating our unique collections. Each and every piece of our jewellery is made from recycled silver and gold, which is much more sustainable than using new metals extracted from the ground. We also use certified Fairtrade Gold to support small-scale miners and help them create a better life for their communities, as well as protecting the environment.
We also have a gold exchange service, where you can send us any old jewellery you no longer wear and give it new life by recycling it with us. We then use these precious metals to create new jewellery sold on our website to create a more circular jewellery industry.
We take great care in how our products are packaged and shipped, and aim to make the least impact on our environment in the process. All of our shipping packaging is plastic free and our boxes are made from recycled cardboard, helping us continue to give life to old materials and reduce the use of single-use products. Our postcards and brochures are matte finished with no plastic film so that these, too, can be recycled and reused.
Our jewellery is made in our workshops in London, Gloucestershire and Melton Mowbray. Any scrap metal is carefully collected and melted into new pieces, meaning there is zero wastage when creating new collections.
Our approach is to set new benchmarks for environmental, social and safety practices in the coloured gemstone sector.Much like our metals, we aim to be responsible and sustainable in our sourcing practises. We source our coloured gemstones from Gemfields and A E Ward who are well-known for being the world-leading suppliers of responsibly sourced gems. Similarly, our pearls come from eco-friendly farms that focus on minimising the environmental impact of farming and aim to raise pearls more sustainably. Recognising our responsibility in leadership, we are working to support increased transparency across the wider downstream supply chain. We seek to provide our customers with increased confidence in the responsible journey their gemstones have taken, all the way from the mines to our studio.
The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) is the process established in 2003 to prevent "conflict diamonds" from entering the mainstream rough diamond market by United Nations General Assembly Resolution 55/56 following recommendations in the Fowler Report.
We are constantly analysing our processes to ensure we are making the best possible decisions to not only be sustainable but to also help with regeneration. We love partnering with charities that work with wildlife and our planet. We currently have a long term partnership with RSPB, for which we have designed an exclusive collection. From this, RSPB receives royalties to help fund their projects, which over the years have included raising awareness of migration birds. This year, with numbers rapidly decreasing, RSPB will continue to buy land to protect crucial areas of natural habitats that otherwise might be destroyed.We also work with Glorious Cotswold Grasslands to help create the largest network of wildlife-rich Jurassic limestone grasslands in the country. Our work includes volunteering, creating awareness, and this year. designing a collection of wildflower jewellery to support their cause. We often run competitions with wonderful charities too, such as the Oceanic Preservation Society and Friends of the Earth to further help with raising awareness.
