Quality and Longevity
Our designs are timeless and made to be durable and wearable from one season to the other. All the pieces are made in sterling silver or solid gold (not plated) so will never lose their colour.
We use responsibly sourced gold, silver and gemstones to minimise our impact to the environment. We're a registered Fairtrade Gold business, which means that the gold we used to make each piece of jewellery is either recycled or produced fairly and transparently. We use recycled silver to make your jewellery and all scrap of metal gets melted down by us or our casters and reused to make new pieces of jewellery.
We only use conflict-free diamonds or traceable sourced gemstones and we are in constant communication with our suppliers to make sure we use the best quality and the most ethical option.
We buy our chains from a trusted supplier, produced in the UK and Italy. Both are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council, this means their materials and working conditions comply with very high ethical standards using metal from post-consumer recycling.
Made in the UK
Our jewellery is handmade by our Goldsmith, Rachel, in our studio in South East London. By making it ourselves, we guarantee quality over quantity, so our jewellery is never over produced. We value local production, we only work with UK suppliers and casters.
The majority of our jewellery is made to order, so, we never over produce.
We use planet-friendly or chemical-free alternatives wherever possible.
Our team puts a lot of effort into recycling day to day waste in the studio, but also making an effort to reduce waste in the first place by only printing when necessary, reusing paper and postal packaging where possible.
Even our microwave is certified eco-friendly!
Our boxes are handmade by a wonderful group of women in Bali using 100% post consumer recycled paper collected from schools, offices, hotels and paper waste found on their streets and homes around Bali. It is coloured using natural dyes taken from the earth, roots and leaves, and is textured with the addition of sustainable plant fibres such as bamboo and flower petals. These woman are paid fairly and learn a valuable skill which not only supports their families but also helps clean up their local environment.
The foam inserts which are 100% free from crude oil are created using a by-product of paper production processes.
Our postal envelopes and printing paper are FSC certified and our tape is paper and natural gum and can be recycled with the postage envelope.
We aim to minimise our waste in every way we can. We prioritise suppliers that can send plastic-free packaging.

We operate in a friendly, safe and respectful studio environment with fair wages and no discrimination. We offer equal opportunities to employees. We encourage individuals to develop skills by offering training and by developing team projects where everyone can participate.
The cutting and processing of gem materials is now done in controlled environments where modern equipment and employment law is the norm. This has eliminated the problems of exploitation and child labour.
We ensure our Gemstones are ethically sourced by buying from suppliers who have visited the workshops and factories they come from, and they are confident that all employees are treated well and fairly, the cutting and processing of gems is done in controlled environments where modern equipment and employment law is the norm. This eliminates exploitation and child labour.
We regularly engage with charitable causes both individually and as a business. Often creating new capsule collections, the proceeds of which are donated to a charitable cause, the most recent of which was for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, Endometriosis UK and AKT Charity supporting the LGBTQI+ community.
