Environment & Packaging
It's really important for our business that we limit our environmental impact as much as possible.
This means we have sourced as much eco-friendly packaging as possible, we run our energy on a green tariff and where we can, business travel is carried out on train rather than by car or plane.
Aside from a small offering of pendant chains, there are no manufacturing processes for our jewellery since it is second hand; all repair work or alterations are carried out by a local goldsmith.
Our jewellery boxes are made from 40% recycled materials and can be recycled again after use. At the moment these have a plastic foam insert, but we are working on sourcing an eco-friendly alternative.
Also in our parcels are some sheets of recycled tissue paper, your invoice printed on recycled paper, and your tailored gemstone care card printed on sustainable and recyclable card.
We use Royal Mail return poly bags which themselves are recyclable, and we don't send them out in each parcel. What we ask is that you request one from us if you want to return your jewellery to reduce wastage.
Our exterior packing boxes are made from 100% recycled card and we use paper based recyclable tape to seal. If you've ordered from outside the UK, the DHL bags we use can be recycled.
We always welcome feedback and suggestions on our packaging and processes, please email this to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for shopping with us, we greatly appreciate your custom.
