Olive & Reg
Penny Payne brought to life her passion for ethically sourced fine jewellery when she founded Olive & Reg, following several years working in the jewellery industry. After becoming increasingly aware of the lack of transparency within the trade, she created Olive & Reg with the aim to bring together online an extensive selection of the most beautiful jewellery of the finest quality, sourced through ethical supply chains.
At Olive & Reg, their driving inspiration is to bring to you a choice of fine jewellery from the very best designers working with ethically sourced precious metals and gemstones. They manage their business in a way that is environmentally and socially responsible: all of their jewellery is created from materials that are sourced with respect both for miners and the environment.
All of their gold has been responsibly mined. Most of the gold jewellery they sell is Fairtrade and Fairmined certified and any pieces which are not certified are either made from recycled gold or mined sources which adhere to fair trade principles.
They source recycled silver and silver from artisanal and small-scale mines, which follow fair trade procedures.
All of their Diamonds and Gemstones can be traced back to their source. Olive and Reg know that their stones have been mined in a way that minimises impact on the environment and they have been cut and polished in workshops that advocate good working conditions and pay fair wages. All of their diamonds are Kimberly Process certified.
Olive & Reg also offer guidance to jewellers who would like to reconsider their supply chains, helping them source from suppliers who can be trusted as socially and environmentally conscious.
