Ethical Jewellery: A Deeper Look into Fairtrade Gold and Bespoke Designs

Are you curious about what makes Fairtrade Gold more than just a precious metal? Let's dive into the world of ethical jewellery and explore the heart behind Fairtrade Certified Gold.

Fairtrade Gold: More Than Just Gold

Fairtrade Gold stands as the world's pioneering independent ethical certification system for gold. It's not just about gold; it's about creating a positive impact. The standards set by Fairtrade ensure safety regulations in mines, protecting miners and ensuring no child labor is involved. Moreover, a portion of the gold sale funds is reinvested into local infrastructure, fostering education and growth in mining communities.

Supporting Fairtrade Gold means supporting small-scale miners, offering them fair compensation and improving their lives and communities. All our engagement rings, wedding rings, pendants, and earrings are available in Fairtrade Gold, showcasing commitment to ethical sourcing.

Ethical Sourcing: Making Informed Choices

As we increasingly prioritise ethical and sustainable living, choosing ethically sourced jewellery becomes vital. Just as we debate the merits of vintage fur versus faux fur, we consider the impact of our jewellery choices on the environment and communities. At Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, we are dedicated to offering an extensive range of ethical jewellery, ensuring you have the information needed to make informed decisions.

UK Craftsmanship: A Promise of Quality and Responsibility

All our fine jewellery, including wedding and engagement rings, is crafted in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. We primarily use recycled metals, including platinum and gold, underlining our commitment to sustainability. Additionally, we offer the option of Fairtrade Gold, providing transparency in sourcing and contributing directly to mining communities. By choosing Poppy Elder Fine Jewellery, you support a small family business invested in UK-made, ethically sourced jewellery.
