Our Ethical Promise

Audrey Claude Jewellery's ethical promise

 The designs define us but so do our ethical intentions

 

Ethical metals

Fairtrade and recycled metals

We are proud to be a full Fairtrade licencee (number 37100). The metal used in all pieces is either recycled or Fairtrade.

A choice of using reclaimed or Fairtrade gold is available for all pieces.

 

Ethical diamonds and gemstones

Traceable diamonds and coloured gemstones
We use ethically sourced and traceable Canadian and Australian diamonds, where diamond mines are held accountable for their social and environmental impacts and adhere to strict labour laws.

Coloured Gemstones

We work closely with gemstone dealers who work directly with the miners and mines so that we have full traceability of the gemstones. We strive to use gemstones from small scale mining cooperatives in their country of origin where the miners welfare, the environment and ecology of the land are all given careful consideration and are treated in a fair and ethical way.

 

Crafted by hand in our local studio

All pieces of Audrey Claude jewellery are made by hand at our studio in Cheltenham - as with many small businesses this enables minimal environmental impact from the mine to the market. Our packaging is also free of plastic and made from environmentally friendly materials.

 

 

People and the environment

One of the reasons we source ethical metals and gemstones is our commitment to a healthy and happy workforce throughout the supply chain. From miners and their communities to our own studio.
