Luxury jewellery with a great message: sustainability

youDRESSED Redaktion

Luxury jewellery and sustainability cannot be combined? Of course this is possible! Over time, the luxury jewellery industry becomes more and more aware of its environment. The topic of sustainability is gradually receiving more attention and people are more concerned with the effects on the environment. We introduce you to three sustainable luxury jewellery brands where you are sure to find the right Christmas gift. Sustainability can look so elegant!

Jewellery is one of the most popular gifts under the Christmas tree. But when choosing the right accessory for your girlfriend, you are spoilt for choice. Why not choose a sustainable brand? In the course of the discussion about sustainable fashion, awareness of the environment has also established itself in the jewellery industry. New ways are increasingly being found to replace mechanical mass production with handmade environmentally friendly products.

Wald Berlin

Joyce Binneboese and Dana Roski are behind the famous name Wald Berlin. The former model and fashion stylist presented their sustainable luxury jewellery for the first time at Berlin Fashion Week in January 2018. Each piece of jewellery is handmade and is produced by the so-called “Fairtrade mothers”. This is a group of unemployed mothers and grandmothers who are unable to work due to their place of residence. The collection includes shells, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals.

Melissa Joy Manning

Already in 1997 Melissa Joy Manning founded the brand, which bears her own name. It is noteworthy that at that time issues such as sustainability and ethics were far from being as central as they are today. The collections are made of materials such as recycled silver, 14-carat gold and stones from responsible sources. The production process in New York and California is also always “green”. Only recycled paper, soy ink and energy-efficient heating and cooling systems are used on site. They are also based on a zero-waste policy and CO2 offset each of their shipments. Funfact: Even celebrities like Angelina Jolie or Jessica Alba can’t get enough of the jewellery.
