Conscious Design and Packaging
Conscious design lies at the heart of Monica Vinader. All jewellery pieces incorporate thoughtful innovation without compromising on quality and are made to last. Each piece holds a 5 year warranty, which includes a commitment from Monica Vinader to repair or replace any damaged items, increasing longevity and reducing waste.
Monica Vinader measures the use of single-use plastics within their packaging and is committed to only using plastic that is recycled, recyclable or biodegradable.
