Wedding Jewellery

The deep symbolic significance of engagement rings and wedding bands makes choosing them a big decision to ensure the sparkle doesn't come at a greater price than necessary

The issues of "conflict free" gold and "blood" diamonds are difficult to get to grips with, but if they are important to you then one way to source more ethical jewellery is to buy from a reputable designer or jeweller who can reassure you as to the origins of the products they sell.

Individual jewellery designers and makers try their best to source ethical metals and gems, so finding a local jewelry designer whose style you like and asking about their sourcing policy will give you the confidence that they are doing their best to be as ethical as possible. Commissioning a designer maker can turn out to be a creative and rewarding experience and surprisingly cost effective, resulting in a beautiful bespoke piece of jewellery which has been individually made for you.

Cred Jewellery has put together a fantastic free Guide to Choosing your Perfect Wedding or Engagement Ring - you can download it here or click on the image below for the booklet.

All our jewellery partners offer ethical, vintage and hand-made wedding rings.

Something old - a family heirloom

An engagement ring from your fiance's family, or your grandmother's wedding ring, make for some epic recycling/repurpurposing opportunities! 

Alternatively, search antique shops or online auctions for a unique piece of jewellery, then have it reworked by a jeweller who can customise it specially for you.
