Fairtrade Gold

Taking Care — Fairtrade Gold

We think a lot about where things come from and how things are made. Our jewellery is given with love and worn with joy. So we want to be as confident as we can that our precious materials have contributed to people’s lives even before they touch our hands. Or yours.

Last October, we decided to source all our gold from suppliers licensed to sell Fairtrade Gold. Which means that we know every gramme now originates from artisanal mines where working conditions and standards are higher and where raw gold creates possibilities for miners and their communities through the Fairtrade Premium.

We have been quietly telling this to anyone who asks. And for the next two weeks, some of our pieces in gold will take part in an initiative called I Do from the Fairtrade Foundation

This campaign highlights the fact you can now choose a commitment ring, hopefully from us, made from Fairtrade Gold. Gold with an even deeper beauty.

We’ll continue trying to find the best possible sources. Investing in the values of a jewel, not just its value. So do ask any question you may have about these issues. They matter to us.
