Going EthicalPosted: November 27, 2009
Blood diamond made the general public aware of what a horrifying industry diamond mining is. What people are less aware of is what a dirty, dirty business gold mining is. Dirty being the operative word since it causes enormous amounts of pollution.
We should therefore count our lucky starts for jewellery designers that care just as much about the environment as great design. One of these are Anglo-Norwegian design duo Oria, who not only use ethically sourced metals and stones but also highlights some of the world’s endangered animals in their silver collection.
