“There is no one-stop shop for an ethical, sustainable piece of jewellery,”
Dr. Laurent E. Cartier, a lecturer in gemmology at the Institute of Earth Sciences at the University of Lausanne.
As a result jewellery makers and brands are addressing environmental and humanitarian issues on a case-by-case basis – focusing on specific materials, supply chains and meaningful ways to give back to the most affected communities.
We aim to bring all of these brands together providing consumers with a place they can purchase jewellery that they can trust is ethical and sustainable. This blog will be dedicated to educating those who would like to listen about the current climate of the jewellery industry & teaching consumers the best care for their jewellery, giving it a longer life thus sustainability.

We wish everyone the best through this confusing time, hoping you are all keeping safe at home and surrounded by those you love.
