OUR COMMITMENT

It's important that every ring we create is done so ethically and with a clear conscience. We're committed to only working with suppliers we know and trust, and supporting the industry by working with skilled and independent crafts people across the UK.


RECYCLED METALS

Unless requested otherwise, we will work with suppliers to ensure recycled metals are used in our rings where possible. As part of this process, the metals are melted down and refined until they reach their purest form once again. 


By using recycled gold we're able to utilise an existing material and dramatically minimise the impact on nature and the environment vs newly mined metals. 


Approx 90% of our metals are made from recycled materials.

FAIRTRADE METALS

Fairtrade Gold is produced fairly and transparently. When buying jewellery made with Fairtrade Gold you make a difference to the miners, their families and their communities. Your support can provide them with the chance to be paid a fair price, better working conditions, build their futures by investing in social projects such as new schools and healthcare, and make their own way to prosperity.


We offer the option of Fairtrade gold to all of our bespoke customers where possible. For a small additional charge your piece can be made from gold which can help to improve the mining and business practices of Fairtrade certified mines.

ETHICAL GEMSTONES

We work with a number of diamond and gemstone suppliers across the world. Each one is committed to the Kimberly Process, which  exists to prevent conflict diamonds from entering our supply chains. 


Established in 2003, mines and rough diamond suppliers must adhere to strict minimum standards set out to ensure that diamond purchases do not finance violence by rebel organisations. 


99.8% of diamonds mines world-wide are now part of the Kimberly Process. 

SUPPORTING MAKERS

We could set up our own production facilities, but we choose not to. We fully believe in the jewellery industry and want to support independent makers (and their families) by working with a small network of trusted bench jewellers and stone setters. In doing so, we know that each one of our rings has passed through the hands of some of the most skilled craftspeople in the UK, and is of the highest standard.
