INTRODUCING: Beautiful Rustic-Luxe Ethical Wedding and Engagement Rings by Slade Fine Jewellery
2nd September 2016
This week I’m over the moon to introduce you to Jemma Slade’s beautiful handworked ethical wedding and engagement rings. You won’t believe how stunning her rings are until you’ve checked out this collection of her work which I think is uniquely qualified to be labelled Rustic-Luxe!
When Jemma first got in touch about the possibility of joining my list of hand picked ethical jewellers, she wasn’t sure that she had the right credentials to share space with the likes of CRED, the original pioneers of Fairtrade and conflict free bling.
Rustic-Luxe imbued with ethics
But I was completely blown away by the beauty and integrity of Jemma’s work, plus she always uses ECO friendly, recycled, Fairtrade Gold and Silver with ethically sourced, conflict free, gorgeous Canadian mined GIA certified diamonds. She also uses other stones such as ethically certified rubies and recycled, antique, natural, and often raw rough cut gemstones. All making her totally eligible to become one of Green Union's jewellery partners!
In fact it was CRED who originally inspired Jemma, while she was still at Uni training to be a jeweller, to pursue the ethical jewellery route.
The hidden secret behind Jemma’s stunning jewellery
The inspiration she gets from her rustic rural Welsh surroundings, giving it an earthy feel. Each piece of jewellery is handmade by Jemma in her Pembrokeshire workshop nestled in the deepest depths of rural Wales, powered by solar panels, rain water, and a biomass boiler.
Textured gold and silver, encrusted with naturally wonderful and unusual gemstones
Her jewellery is beautifully hand worked in textured gold and silver, encrusted with naturally wonderful and unusual gemstones. The pleasure of making jewellery, for Jemma, comes from working with the materials themselves and creating a timeless, sentimental and meaningful engagement or wedding ring for the intended person working closely with each client to create unique, individual and meaningful bespoke pieces.
Ready-to-wear still individually hand made
Of course, if you don’t have time to wait, she has a Collection of ready-to-wear pieces, each one completely unique, designed and handmade by Jemma, that you can buy straight away from her own website Slade Fine Jewellery.
