Earlier this month we delivered our very first pair of Fairtrade Gold wedding rings – in time for our clients’ wedding day.
Created in Fairtrade 18ct Yellow Gold, both rings carry the Fairtrade Gold stamp which appears alongside the hallmark. (You can see the small square stamp to the left of the hallmark in our image above.)
During an in-depth appointment our clients expressed a keen interest in sourcing their wedding rings in the most ethical way possible.
Choosing Fairtrade Gold, gave them the reassurance that their precious wedding rings were produced fairly and transparently. By choosing Fairtrade Gold, poor small scale artisanal miners receive a minimum price for the gold they recover. There is a complex, documented trail leading directly from the mine to the finished product. Fairtrade Gold offers a lifeline to small scale miners, supporting their families and communities – helping them to build a better future.
Earlier this year, the UK saw the launch of the IDO campaign launched by the Fairtrade Foundation . The launch set out to promote Fairtrade Gold wedding rings and bridal jewellery. Growing numbers of retailers – larger chains and smaller independent retailers, now offer Fairtrade Gold as a more ethical alternative to regular 18ct Gold. At Serendipity Diamonds, we are proud to support Fairtrade certified products and we remain committed and excited about future developments for Fairtrade Gold.
