Share the Love with an ethical engagement

It's Valentine Day tomorrow and maybe you've decided to pop the question? You're just going to use a curtain ring for the proposal and let her choose a ring, you may also be thinking she'll want to not only go ethical but also individual. Steer her in the direction of April Doubleday one of the jewellers who is leading the ethical pack with her individually designed hand crafted jewellery.

On the use of gold, she says "I only use 18ct FTFM Eco gold as I have to know where exactly the gold I use was mined, insisting that workers have been fairly paid and that their working conditions are safe, hygienic and humane. It's also essential for me to know that no child labour has been used in the extraction of the gold. I use Colombian gold which is Fair Trade accredited by the Cred Foundation. Greg Valerio of that organisation traces the gold from source to customer every step of the way."
