gold necklace: ethical responsible conflict free gold, jewelry, diamonds

Conflict Free Diamonds, Gemstones, Gold

When jewelry materials such as gold, diamonds, and gemstones are mined at the expense of human heath and well being, the natural attractiveness is lost.

Jewelry by Design is a local, low-impact, small scale artisan company committed to helping communities and eco-friendly projects worldwide. We are committed to sourcing all jewelry materials that are ethical or “responsible”, from environmentally friendly and conflict free businesses. Other terms used include earth jewelry. Our products are considered ethical “conflict free” jewelry, for example we use only “responsible diamonds”.

We practice the most efficient and low-impact manufacturing methods available within the jewelry industry. Through using client-owned materials for new projects, and refusing hazardous chemicals (including those involved in rhodium plating), Jewelry by Design is able to reduce the environmental impact of our business. We accept client ring trade ins, and using client gems and pre-owned jewelry as a way of offsetting new jewelry costs and providing a direct responsible materials source – direct from the client!

Clients will sometimes have special requests to acquire conflict free gems or responsible diamonds from specific countries or sources, such as Canadian gems or other similar countries. We are able to accommodate such requests with our vast source of contacts.

New Jewelry Line

I am delighted to announce a new jewelry line called "The Golden Ratio" "Used by the ancient Greeks as the perfection of architecture, the golden ratio is also mirrored in a multitude of natural forms. I use it to ensure that my jewelry is balanced, even when the structure is purely organic. Please look at the website gallery and/or visit the studio to see our dazzling collection.
