Every piece of jewellery tells a story. These stories are beautiful, singular and unexpected, having roots that travel much deeper than the mere circumstance of how two people met and fell in love. The jewelry that we give one another, the symbols of our unique love, isn’t just conjured from the ether. Most gems are dug out of the ground, and usually it’s a rather messy and ugly business that comes at great peril for the individuals doing the mining and for the environment. For this reason FTJCo believe it’s essential that every step a ring makes on its journey to you is accounted for.

All Fairtrade and Fairmined gold comes from small-scale and artisanal mines that take great pains to reduce their dependence on harmful chemicals. This is good news for the environment and for the people who live and mine in these communities. It’s not overstating things in the least to say that this gold changes the lives of those who mine it, and at FTJCo they want to make sure it’s for the better, not the worse.
