Limitations & challenges

The jewellery industry has come a long way in the last 15 years and there are more genuinely ethical options for consumers than ever before but there is still plenty to do.  While its important to acknowledge the positives its also important we recognize what is still to be done and what the limitations are with the current structers and supply chains within the industry today.

 
 

solder

Solder is used to join metal together using heat, it is metal that is alloyed in such a way that it has a lower melting tempurature that other metal.  There are currently no Fairtrade solder options meaning all jewellery peices that have been soldered in their production will contain metal that is not from Fairtrade sources, if only in tiny amounts.

 

Silver & Platinum

There is currently very little supply of certified silver or platinum with the vast majority of this coming from Fairmined.  As alternative we offer re-cycled silver and platinum.
