Best ethical jewellery – Emma Aitchison picked by The Independent
18/03/2019 Anna Sjostrom Walton

Emma Aitchison’ nature inspired jewellery gives us forms from mountains, volcanoes and oceans, and send important messages about pollution and changing weather patterns. I’m thrilled yet hardly surprised that the Independent has picked Emma as one of the 9 best ethical and sustainable jewellery brands. The Independent praise Emma for her reasonable prices and for even managing to use entirely sustainable packaging. Emma’s prices are matched in the shop.Today, Monday 18th March is Global Recycling Day, so what better day to highlight this great achievement!

Best ethical jewellery – high standards on Fairtrade and recycled materials

To be one of the best ethical jewellery designers comes with high demands. Emma’s sustainable jewellery is made to strict ethical standards, using recycled and responsibly sourced materials where possible, avoids harsh chemicals and shows high consideration for the environment. Her Fairtrade silver and gold comes exclusively from the UK and she takes the Fair Trade pledge every year. Her sustainable practices extend to her low waste studio environment, where pieces are made to order to avoid overproduction. She continues to push for better practices, and now donates profits to the charity 1% for the Planet.
