Ethical fairtrade rings inspired by the sea and coastline
Who are we...
I have always been passionate about sourcing my materials since then. Living by the sea inspires my designs, I try to incorporate the natural beauty of the coastline within my work, to make mini sculptures that are wearable and speak of our environment.
April's Fairtrade gold and ethical engagement rings and ethical wedding rings reflect a contemporary and unique style that is inspired by the Devon sea and coastline. All April's jewellery is made bespoke for you using materials that are ethically mined, sourced or recycled. The gold is mined in accordance with the standards set by the Fairtrade labelling organisation and her diamonds are from Canada and Australia.
April is a British ethical designer/maker of contemporary jewellery, living on the North Coast of Devon. She uses the coastline, rock formations and the sea as inspiration for her designs.
Based in north Devon, I was one of the first jewellers to become Fairtrade, last year I recently was certified Fairmined. Being part of the Fairtrade and Fairmined system means miners will adhere to a set of standards, guaranteeing that gold is produced in a way that is safe for people and the environment, In return, miners will receive a set minimum Fairtrade price for their gold, plus the Fairtrade premium to invest in community and business development projects.
I am also a supporter and sponsor the Jeweltree foundation since its inception in 2008, Jeweltree is committed to providing a traceable diamond product, with a jeweltree certificate you can find out where your diamond was mined and under which conditions it was polished. All stones are sourced wherever possible.
I also use recycled metals or recycle as much as possible myself by using your very own metal put back into my designs.
