Sustainability

"Sustainability is here to stay or we may not be."

Materials

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

We prioritise ensuring our products and packaging are environmentally sustainable.

Recycled metals are used throughout production. In order to reduce waste and close the loop, we recycle damaged, broken and faulty items. Recycled metals are of the same quality as newly mined metals but with a lower carbon footprint.

The pouch in which your jewels arrive is produced in sustainable, organic cotton. Our paper and cardboard packaging is recyclable and FSC certified and our mailers, shipping labels and tapes are all compostable.

It should be noted that the Express Post sticker we are required to use on domestic shipments is not compostable and should be removed prior to composting.

Production

Ethical Manufacturing

We partner with Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) and Sedex certified manufacturers in Thailand.

The Responsible Jewellery Council is a not-for-profit organisation setting sustainability standards for responsible business practices within the jewellery industry.

Similarly, Sedex is a not-for-profit organisation that allows companies to store and view data on ethical and responsible business practices.

Our prduction partners utilise recycled metals, ethically source gemstones and maintain good working standards in a safe environment.

Delivery

Carbon Neutral

Transport and logistics are estimated to be responsible for over 16% of global greenhouse gas emissions every year. As an online store, shipping is a crucial part of our business model.

Carbon neutrality is vital in the fight against climate change. We've partnered with Shopify Planet to neutralise our shipping emissions and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it. Shopify Planet supports key solutions that remove carbon for a minimum of 10 years.
