We source our stainless-steel findings from Australia and China as they have the most experience and knowledge in sustainably producing stainless steel. Our materials are never wasted, and we ensure that it is either recycled in another production run or reused for sample production until it is finally purchased. This method of recycling minimises excessive wastage and ensures that materials are used to their greatest capacity.
80% of our stainless steel is sourced from within Australia to minimise travel emissions and the remainder is sourced ethically from China. We use glass crystals instead of diamonds unless they are proven to be ethically mined or lab made.
We are proud to integrate eco-friendly packaging across all our shipping goods so it as effective as it is kind to the environment. To package your jewels, we may use a combination of cardboard gift boxes, biodegradable protective wrap packaging and compostable satchels.
We use cardboard gift boxes as they are durable, biodegradable, and great for reusability. Our biodegradable protective wrap packaging is a biodegradable plastic sleeve alternative that steers clear of harmful plastic polymer film and prevents excessive landfill and toxic waste.
Our compostable postage satchel are 100% biodegradable, compostable and represents a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions in manufacturing when compared to traditional plastic.
Commitment to ethical manufacturing means that our products are only produced in small batches.
