Ethical Kalimera/Kalinihta sterling silver and 9ct gold rings set with responsibly sourced, traceable gemstones or diamond

£430.00£1,340.00

This ocean inspired, hand made ethical and eco friendly ring is made from recycled sterling silver and 9ct gold. The band is sand textured and planished with a brushed finish. Available as a narrow (3mm) or wide (5mm) band. The narrow band takes an approx 2.5mm/.06 carat gemstone, the 5mm band takes an approx 4mm/.25 carat gemstone.

Each gemstone is responsibly sourced and meets the principles of Fair Trade. Every stone mined will be different, so if you’d like to know more about your gemstone, or choose from a selection, please let me know.

I prefer to source my gemstones from Sri Lanka or Tanzania. The miners work in safe conditions, with fair pay, no children work in the mines and these gemstones do not fund wars or civil unrest. The nature of mining in these countries does less environmental damage.

I’ve chosen to work with these gemstones and mines, because they do the most good for the artisans who mine them.  Please get in touch if you’d like to know more. Sometimes gemstones in specific sizes are unavailable, at which point I’ll source from other Fair Trade mines outwith Sri Lanka and Tanzania.

The natural diamonds I use are Canadian, alternatively laboratory created diamonds are available.

Each ring is hand made to order and takes 4-6 weeks.

This ethical and eco friendly collection is also vegan and vegetarian friendly – no animal products are used in the making of my jewellery.

Description

Ethical, responsibly sourced ring with spinel, sapphire, ruby, natural or lab created diamond.

The Kalimera Kalinihta collection was inspired by the ocean and summers in the Greek Islands. Feel your toes in the sand and the sun on your skin. Pretty coloured houses tumble down the hillsides to the sea. The dark green of the olive trees, the aquamarine of the sea, ripples on the sea bed and the way the colours change as day becomes night.

Kalimera means good morning – bright silver and gold, pastel coloured stones and aquamarine blues.

Kalinihta means good night – oxidised silver and darker stones, reminiscent of an inky blue sea in the moonlight.

Faceted stones are round, like the sun and the moon.

This ethical responsibly sourced gemstone ring is also vegan and vegetarian friendly – no animal products are used in the making of my jewellery.
