BY LISA MARIE DESIGNER GOLDSMITH
Ethical Jewellery Designer
I source my ethical gold responsibly, mainly by using and re-alloying decorative gold from clients. By doing so, you know that the metal in your jewellery has not been produced at the expense of communities, workers or the environment.
Throughout the world, gold mining has had disastrous and irrevocable effects on ecosystems and children’s lives especially, in small-scale informal unlicensed mines.
The only way to be completely certain of the ethical nature of sourced gold is to make sure it is 100% recycled.
A starting point for our Ethical bespoke jewellery is for customers is to consider reusing old gold – family jewellery can be melted down here in our workshop and made into a new piece.
