Jewellery always makes a lovely gift. That’s especially true come Valentine’s Day, whether you’re shopping for your partner, your best friend or yourself. The piece you choose should, of course, be beautiful and reflective of the recipient’s taste, but it should also come from a brand with sustainable values at its core. Luckily, there are so much beautiful jewellery among our Brands to Trust. We rounded up several options for you to consider on your hunt for sustainable jewellery this Valentine’s Day.
If you’re looking for something sleek and trendy, consider the Reclaimed Her earrings from KBH Jewels, made with reclaimed solid gold. The message behind them is perfect for any woman in your life (or yourself), too: the spirit and power of women. The Vela Loop earrings from MyriamSOS are another unique take on classic hoops with their misshapen silhouette. They’re also made with 90% recycled metals with traceable diamonds sourced from conflict-free zones.
A zodiac bracelet
Who doesn’t love a personalised gift, as well as something shiny? The Zodiac Stone Bangle from Washed Ashore is available in all 12 zodiac signs, with elemental stones specific to each one. Beyond being a beautiful, wearable piece, the bracelet is made from recycled gold and the stones were recovered from vintage jewellery.
A statement ring
A ring might seem like an obvious choice on this day of love (whether you’re popping the question or not), but if you go with something really different, it can still be an unexpected gift. Stephen Webster‘s stunning Love Me, Love Me Not Crystal Haze ring is “a modern representation of romance,” with its nod to the game of chance. Crafted with respect for the environment, the ring features quartz black opalescent crystals and black diamond pave set in 18k white gold.
An ethereal pendant
Designer Elisa Pantazoplous creates one-of-a-kind pieces for her jewellery brand, Eli-o, inspired by her Greek heritage. The Apollon Necklace, with the god Apollo engraved into its pendant, symbolises beauty and wisdom, and its crafted from a recycled coin. The Divina Cloud Pendant from Noor Fares has a similar, organic look with its carved natural rock crystal. Every Noor Fares piece is mindfully-made and meant to be treasured for generations.
