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.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
