Sustainable ways to accessorize
Lab-grown diamonds are more attractive than ever when designed with Fairtrade gold or recycled gold. This glittering combination results in beautiful pieces of ethical jewellery that possess great appeal, particularly if you love accessorizing in sustainable ways.
More and more modern people start seeking out more meaningful ways to shop, dress and accessorize. Not only do we want to look fabulous but we also want to feel good about the purchases we make.
Madestones, Europe’s largest distributor of lab-grown diamonds, supplies an exciting range of white and colour (blue, yellow and pink) lab-grown diamonds to a number of companies who are recognised for crafting exquisite jewellery by fair and ethical means.
Lab-grown diamonds are the perfect fit for the sustainable market. The stones are fully traceable, eco-friendly alternative for socially conscious people. The entire manufacturing process takes place above ground within a laboratory, where science gets married to social values.
Fairtrade and recycled precious metals
Gold, on the other hand, has to be mined which inevitably involves drilling, dredging and blasting. In short, a whole lot of environmental upheaval. Fortunately, Fairtrade gold mines now exist. If you buy Fairtrade-certified gold, you know measures are in place to help the local workforce and the environment. The miners are also given a fair price for their gold.
Recycled gold is also on-trend as designers seek out ways to make sustainable accessories. Ideally, using more recycled precious metals should mean less mining for new metals, which is less damaging to the Earth.
The ever-growing jewellery market predicts no shortage of demand for accessories over the coming years. Therefore, it is always good to know that an incredible range of glittering stones can be grown in a laboratory to meet demand.
As Madestones are available in different colours, shapes and sizes, this adds to their versatile appeal. For example, if environmentally friendly companies want to make bigger, bolder, statement rings, working with man made diamonds is an exciting prospect. Not only that, laboratory-grown diamonds are at the same time a more affordable alternative on the diamond market. Bring Fairtrade gold or recycled gold into the design process and you get a very attractive piece of jewellery, in many ways.
