From signet rings to layerable necklaces, our everyday and special occasion jewellery shapes our looks and builds our personal style. Whether you’re the type to wear a bracelet so often, it becomes your style signature or swap out your bangles every day, the quality of each item is of the highest importance. The quality isn’t only measured by the material, but also by how the item was made. From environmental preservation to worker welfare, responsible production isn’t something we have the luxury of ignoring today, as it’s a critical component in our role as conscious consumers. Ahead, some of the best jewellery brands designing ethically and eco-friendly in 2023.

Etika Jewels

With lab-grown diamonds and gemstones, Etika Jewels offers elegant, eco-ethical jewellery for the conscious consumer.

From early sketches to the final product, Etika Jewels specialises in rejuvenating classic pieces of diamond and gold jewellery with this modern practice.
