Sustainable practices are always at the forefront of our minds in the design and production of our jewellery, packaging and print media. However, sustainability to us is not only about physical materials and transparency in supply chain but also in the investment in high quality jewellery pieces that are seasonless. Social sustainability is also key to our brand; our jewellery is designed to be gender neutral and all pieces are piercing free.
All sampling is done in-house at our studio, allowing us to directly working and designing on the body. We mainly use recycled silver for our collections. Our production partners are monitored members of Jewellery Associations, with great working conditions and fair pay. We also work closely with artisans in Hatton Garden, London, as well as a manufacturer in Germany for our gemstones, for which we use up-cycled off-cuts for our pieces.
Our packaging and printed material are made from recycled and recyclable materials, and in-house we are always looking into minimising and re-using packaging. For international shipments we use GoGreen options of DHL.
Considering our values and missions surrounding sustainable practice, we are proud to have taken a step towards circular economy in the jewellery industry by offering a rental platform to our customers.
In all aspects of operating our business, we thrive towards being as sustainable as possible and we will continue our efforts to constantly question and improve.
