Our Favourite Ethical Jewellery Brands.
We all love a bit of bling. From rings, to bracelets, to necklaces, jewellery is the perfect way to accessorise your favourite outfit. But have you ever thought about the sustainability of your favourite jewellery brands? Lots of jewellery is created in unethical, unsustainable ways by exploiting workers and using materials that are of scarce supply.
Here at nuddy, we are super passionate about brands that are doing their bit to leave a sustainable impact within their respective markets. That's why we've been scoping out the best ethical jewellery brands, just for you. So, next time you fancy treating yourself, make sure it's from a brand that puts ethics at the forefront of it's mission.
Feather and Chain avoid mining resources that are already of scarce supply, instead, using man-made gemstones that are 100% traceable. The brand also vouches to use no bone, no leather and no mother of pearl, meaning it puts animal safety at the forefront of it's mission. Not only this, they are pledging to use only recycled silver and gold in their products by the end of 2021, too. What an incredible brand.

Yala Jewellery is the first jewellery brand in the UK to be granted certified B-Corp status, AKA a business that 'meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability'. Made in Kenya, they ensure that all staff members are paid fair wages, guaranteed safe and hygienic working conditions and are entitled to training and development- plus, their pieces are absolutely stunning.
