Responsible Sourcing & Ethics
At Powells Jewellery, we are dedicated to promoting sustainability and ethical practices in the world of fine jewellery. Our commitment extends to both our contemporary designs and our collection of vintage, antique, and preowned pieces, ensuring that every purchase you make aligns with our ethical values.
For our contemporary designs, we believe in the importance of knowing the origins of our gemstones. We source our stones from reputable suppliers who adhere to ethical mining practices, ensuring that the communities and environments where they are extracted are treated with respect and fairness. We prioritize transparency and traceability, striving to provide you with a clear understanding of the journey your jewellery has taken.
One of our key focuses is supporting the Kimberley Process, a global initiative established to prevent the trade of conflict diamonds. By actively participating in this process, we ensure that our diamonds are sourced responsibly, free from any association with human rights abuses or conflict zones. When you choose our contemporary designs, you can wear them with pride, knowing that they are the result of responsible and ethical practices.
In our collection of vintage, antique, and preowned pieces, we celebrate the concept of reuse and the timeless beauty found in heirloom jewellery. By embracing these treasures from the past, we actively contribute to reducing the demand for new mining and the environmental impact associated with it. Each piece carries a unique story and character, breathing new life into history while preserving the beauty and craftsmanship of bygone eras.
We believe in the power of extending the lifecycle of jewellery. By offering carefully curated vintage and preowned pieces, we encourage conscious consumerism and reduce waste in the industry. These pieces are expertly rejuvenated and restored, ensuring their longevity and enabling you to own a piece of history that is not only beautiful but also sustainable.
