Ethical and fairtrade gemstones.

I can now source more gemstones than ever from ethical suppliers here in the UK and abroad. More and more are becoming available as suppliers are becoming increasingly aware of the need to be socially and environmentally responsible in the the way they do business.


If you'd like to commission a ring, or other piece of jewellery and wish to incorporate a particular stone, there is a chance I will be able to source it for you. 

Below is a list of the stones available at the moment. If you don't see what you want, it is always worth dropping me a line through the contact page so I can see if it has become available.


This is the latest list I have of what I can source. If you don't see what you'd like, do contact me, as it may well now be available, I will ask my suppliers. I can also look at sourcing a re-claimed or lab grown stone/s.

Diamonds

I source recycled diamonds from the 'Harmony' diamonds range at the eco-friendly bullion dealer Hoover & strong.  They are arguably the most eco-friendly natural diamond available, by demanding them, customers and jewellers are helping to reduce the industry's reliance on environmentally damaging mining practices.  Hoover & Strong is one of the world's leaders in the acquisition and reintroduction of these many millions of diamonds back into the jewelry supply chain.

A recycled 'Harmony' diamond is a naturally occurring diamond, cut & polished from mined rough, and recovered from vintage jewellery, re-polished and graded for the perfect, non-conflict non-polluting option. A huge selection of sizes and grades and colours are available, so tell me what you'd like and I will find the perfect diamond/s for your ring.

Sapphires - blues, pinks and purples, heated and unheated are available through the ethical sapphire suppliers I use. 

Spinel   Mohs scale hardness 8, available in many colours, a really special, pretty stone.
