A WORD FROM THE CO-FOUNDERS
People get the most joy from life when giving, whether it be of themselves or gifting something special and unique.
JANE BELL AND SHANNON DIAMOND
A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Godavari packaging is the convergence between sustainability and innovation. The minimalist appeal means that less really is more. As well as being fully recyclable and biodegradable, the paper stock used in Godavari gift packaging has FSC certification, meaning that the pulps used are all from managed forests. It is also Heavy Metal Free and, because the bleaching process avoids the use of harmful chlorine, it is classified ECF. The Godavari jewellery case may be used with a Godavari diamond globe setting, ring or jewellery, all within a single design. Simple inserts are changed out or turned over to easily reconfigure the case. Each Godavari jewellery case is cast in a special, single composite resin material. The beautiful minimalism of the packaging is both aesthetically pleasing and beautiful to touch, while also negating the requirement for complex parts and adhesives. The simplicity of the process and fewer parts, coupled with the design of the packaging, creates greater efficiency with far less waste than similar product packaging.
A GIFT FOR THE SENSES
Godavari’s unique diamond globe settings are placed within a purposefully designed jewellery case, presented in Godavari coral. The Godavari jewellery case perfectly encapsulates the natural beauty of each diamond through its silk-like touch and protective cylindrical form. The design of the packaging elements is inspired by the simple geometric shapes of early 20th century design, also forming an influence within the Godavari jewellery range. Surrounding the jewellery case, each Godavari outer packaging cube is hand-crafted in luxuriously textured uncoated paper. To complete the sensory experience, the packaging is gently perfumed with the signature Godavari scent.
OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD
