There are many ways you can live a more sustainable lifestyle. From where you shop to what you wear, there's always an eco-friendly choice to make. It makes sense to consider your jewellery collection too, to make sure the jewellery you're buying and wearing is as good for you as it is the planet.
What is sustainable jewellery?
Sustainable jewellery is jewellery that has been made in an environmentally-friendly and socially responsible way. This means the jewellery has been made with responsibly-sourced metals, sent in eco-friendly packaging with carbon neutral delivery, and fair pricing. Put simply eco-friendly jewellery is kinder for you, the planet, and the people who make it! Read more about what makes jewellery sustainable.
Why is sustainable jewellery important?
Traditional jewellery has a huge environmental impact, from extracting metals to diamond mining. It's important to buy and wear sustainable jewellery because it supports the responsible production of eco-friendly accessories. You know exactly who made your jewellery and where; what it was made from, and how it was produced. Learn more about sustainable jewellery on our Style Journal blog.
3 Reasons To Buy Sustainable Jewellery
It's obvious to us at Oh My Clumsy Heart why sustainable jewellery is the best and only choice, here are 3 reasons why you should buy eco-friendly jewellery.
Sustainable Jewellery Is Eco-Friendly
Unlike fast fashion, sustainable jewellery is designed to be worn every day and made to last. It has reduced environmental impact because the materials are sourced ethically, the packaging is eco-friendly, and delivery is carbon neutral. Sustainable jewellery is made by taking into consideration the impact it has on the environment at every level, from sourcing to production and distribution.
At Oh My Clumsy Heart, we strive to be as eco-friendly as possible. Our jewellery is made using recycled gold and silver, and designed to be durable. We want you to wear our sustainable jewellery forever. That's why we offer a guarantee, a repair service, and a recycling scheme. Our packaging is plastic-free and completely recyclable too.
Sustainable Jewellery Is Affordable
In traditional retail, jewellery is marked up by 300% to make a hefty profit, and to cover shop overheads, wholesale fees, and retailer margins. Most brands don't use ethically-sourced metals and the jewellery they sell isn't good quality. It doesn't last and you end up having to replace it, just like you do with cheap fast fashion.
Our jewellery doesn't cost a fortune or the Earth. We take pride in putting the planet before profits by making our sustainable jewellery as affordable as possible without compromising on the quality or our ethics. We do this by being an online-only brand. We don't mark our jewellery up to sell to wholesale retailers, meaning we've eliminated the costs of import expenses, middlemen costs, and designer inflation.
Sustainable Jewellery Is Timeless
Fast fashion jewellery is trend-led meaning it starts to look dated only after one or two seasons. It's literally designed to be thrown away (or break!) once it's no longer in style. Sustainable jewellery is the total opposite. It's designed to be classic in style, and timeless in design meaning it won't go out of fashion—ever.
Our sustainable jewellery is designed to be delicate yet durable. We only ever used recycled gold and sterling silver meaning your jewellery won't rub off or turn your fingers green. So you'll be able to wear your favourite pieces all day, every day. We create minimal jewellery designs that are timeless in style to go with any outfit you wear.
