Fairtrade Gold at London Jewellery Week

APRIL DOUBLEDAY, 18ct ethical gold rings

London Jewellery Week is bang on trend with a special exhibition dedicated to the jewels made from the precious metal in vogue:   Fairtrade gold. As an avid follower of The Jewellery Editor, you will know that I got very excited about the launch of first ever Fairtrade and Fairmined gold that arrived on our shores this February. And now, we get to see the first jewellery collections made from this ingot of precious metal from 11 different designers.  They will all be on show at Treasure, (from 10 to 12th June) the jewellery show where you can buy direct from dozens of individual jewellers that is part of London Jewellery Week. You might even be lucky enough to meet the jewellers themselves - a real plus when buying something as personal as jewellery. Click here to buy your entrance ticket. More designers have applied for an allocation of Fairtrade Gold, including Hattie Rickards, though she is not present at London Jewellery Week. Fairtrade and Fairmined certified gold is the world's first independent ethical certification system for gold that offers the guarantee of a product which has been responsibly mined from small-scale and artisanal mines in South America. A unique partnership, Fairtrade and Fairmined gold certification is the result of a joint effort between Fairtrade International (FLO) and the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM), which combined their expertise to enable artisanal and small-scale miners (ASM) to improve their livelihoods.
