Ethical handmade jewellery and jewellery stands perfect to complete your fair trade fashion look. Because fair trade is about more than coffee and chocolate and living a sustainable lifestyle doesnâ€™t mean giving up lifeâ€™s little luxuries.
Like the fashion trade, the jewellery industry has had its fair share of horror stories particularly surrounding the mining of diamonds, gemstones and precious metals and precious metals. We donâ€™t stock these here although you may be pleased to know that the Fairtrade Foundation has brought in the fair trade gold mark and the fair trade silver mark so you can now buy ethically sourced gold and sterling silver jewellery carrying the Fairtrade mark.
Our ethical jewellery includes handmade necklaces and bracelets that are perfect for brightening or updating your look without the price tag of precious metals and jewels. And because youâ€™re buying fair trade you know that people are being paid a fair price and sustainability has been considered right along the supply chain.
Who would've thought you could recycle unwanted pencils into fabulous jewellery and home accessories. The quirky handmade necklace and bracelet have been crafted using factory rejects, that would otherwise have ended up in the bin. The use of recycled materials means this costume jewellery has a very low environmental impact and is great fun to wear.
The bohemian beaded cutwork necklace is another colourful statement piece. Handcrafted with glass beads in gemstone colours, filigree discs and gold-tone chain it works well with a scoop neck or over a plain top. Or the flirty tassel longline necklace, featuring five overlapping discs and a pink blue and green tassel. We love that each bead is a different colour picked out by the threads in the tassel.
For a less colourful option that will still make a statement and bring interest to an outfit, we love the hand stamped silver leaf necklace. The adjustable chain means you can wear it short or long dependant on the outfit between approximately 14 and 16 inches.
The unique wooden cuff bangles are on trend and really beautiful. Made of brass and stained wood the colours are lovely and natural while still showing off the wood grain.
And because fair trade standards are being followed you know the work put in by the men or women who make them is being properly rewarded, thereâ€™s been no child labour and communities are being supported. So you can wear your new necklace or give it as a gift with pride. Now all you need to do is find the earrings to match.
The hand-carved mango wood boxes are stunningly designed and made. Mango wood is a quick growing hardwood that is harvested once the trees have stopped bearing fruit making it a much more sustainable material than many hardwood equivalents and perfect for making furniture.
The mini dressing table mirror has a single drawer for keeping rings and necklaces or you could keep a few makeup essentials in there as well. While the sliding drawers have three compartments to keep your dressing table even more organised.
And if you are fed up with untangling chains and like to be able to see your jewellery options at a glance why not opt for a fair trade jewellery stand. These unique stands are made from recycled metal and can accommodate rings, earrings, bangles and necklaces with ease. They are also really stunning pieces of art that would make lovely home accessories in their own right.
The tree with bird stand has a handy little dish at the bottom perfect for rings or stud earrings and plenty of branches for hanging other earrings, bracelets and short necklaces. For longer necklaces, the tree of life stand is perfect as it stands over half a meter tall.
