There are many occasions on which we tend to think of jewellery as an ideal gift, from Valentine’s Day to Christmas, but do we always stop to think about the origin of our adornments? With Mother’s Day approaching, you may want to consider our ethical rankings before making your choice.
It might come as a surprise to learn that many famous, high-end brands score poorly in our ratings, and that you can buy beautiful, ethical jewellery at a much more affordable price.
Lab-grown and conflict-free gemstones are leading the way in terms of an ethical alternative to those mined under terrible safety conditions, or in areas of conflict. We hope that consumers will make the choice to buy from these suppliers going forward, decreasing the demand for irresponsibly sourced diamonds and therefore helping to reduce the issues that surround their extraction in some parts of the world.
Take a look at the Jewellery Ethical Ratings Table in full to compare brands and learn more about the findings from our research, including their performance in specific areas from animal welfare to sustainability.
