Many brands won’t share the origins of their jewelry
The best way to know how ethical your jewelry is? Learn the origins of the piece.
“Disclosing who made it is not a must,” says sustainable jewelerArabel Lebrusan, “so always go with jewellery from brands, designers or designer-makers who can tell you exactly who made that piece of jewellery.”
The best jewelers know precisely where their jewelry was designed, crafted, and checked for quality. More importantly, they’re not afraid to tell you.
A little secret about the industry
Jewelry gets its support from one source: your votes.
But not the voice you express at the ballot box. The votes you place with your dollars.
Jewelry is a beautiful way to dress up, express yourself, and show your individuality.
But the industry is broken. It’s built on generations of poor business practices that continue to this day.
The best way to initiate change? Do some research and find jewelers with ethical practices.
Find companies with reasonable profit margins and accessible prices.
Brands owned by women that have jewelry for all body types.
Jewelers that don’t work to fix prices, and professionals who are open and honest about where every piece is made.
