This eco friendly engagement ring forms part of my ocean inspired Kalimera Collection and is named after Amphitrite, Wife of Poseidon.
Kalimera means good morning in Greek and the collection was inspired by summer in the Greek islands. The textures used mimic those of the sand and ripples on the sea bed.
This eco friendly engagement ring is also an ethical choice, the gold is Fairmined and the platinum is 100% recycled.
Gemstones are sourced from Sri Lanka and Tanzania, they meet fair trade principles, are traceable and conflict free. I use these particular gemstones because I believe that they benefit artisan miners the most.
Artisan mining is small scale and has a lesser environmental impact, furthermore, artisan miners are often making a living in the only way they can. Many miners are also female.
I source my natural diamonds from Canada, where they are guaranteed conflict free and traceable. Alternatively, lab created diamonds are available for those who would prefer to avoid the environmental issues related to diamond mining.
