Did you know that Fairtrade Certified Gold is the first-ever ethical certification system for gold jewellery?
When you buy a Fairtrade certified ring, chain, necklace, or bracelet, you are supporting the gold miners that sourced the gold for that jewellery. They receive fair pay for their hard work, and you’re helping to protect their local communities and the environment too.
Here at JewelStreet, we are proud to offer jewellery from talented designers that use Fairtrade Gold, or gold from sustainable sources in their pieces.
So, if you want to make a statement, why not do so in style with these ten beautiful Fairtrade and sustainable gold pieces:
Yeo Yellow Gold Ring - Molten Wedding Rings £340
Are you getting married soon? If so, one way to show that you support people getting a fair wage in gold-mining countries is by purchasing a Fairtrade wedding band. One such example of a luxurious yet contemporary band is the Yeo Yellow Gold Ring from the Molten Wedding Ring Company.
Available in a variety of sizes, each ring gets made using traditional methods and then is hand-finished in Molten’s studio in Devon. Founded in 2005, Molten wedding bands are designed by the talented Erin Cox, a designer-maker with over 15 years of experience.
