Established by the National Association of Jewellers, the trade association for the jewellery sector, Created in the UK is a scheme that champions British production; a chance for jewellers like us to shout about the local provenance of our creations. To us, joining the community was a no-brainer. Not only does our license enable us to help promote the talent, creativity and skill that defines the British jewellery industry, it's also a simple way of communicating our sustainable framework to you.
With jewellery shoppers growing evermore stringent about traceability and the opportunity to uphold traditional craft, the Created in the UK scheme is an effective way of assuring you that our jewellery adheres to your ethical margins; no promise feels quite as wholehearted as one branded permanently into precious metal. A piece of jewellery that bears a Created in the UK stamp is a piece of jewellery to be worn with both pride and peace of mind.
Of course, the notion of ‘sustainability’ is primarily an environmental matter. With the majority of our manufacturing processes taking place within a radius of roughly 150m squared and the A-to-B transportation of our jewels mostly carried out on foot, manufacturing locally to our base at the London Diamond Bourse enables us to minimise the size of our carbon footprint.
... But sustainability isn’t exclusively about the planet. It's also about sustaining people and their skills; honouring our collective histories and ensuring that practises can continue to be passed down from one generation to the next. Crafted by the experienced hands of UK-based artisans passionate about their craft, our jewellery showcases traditional techniques and upholds British cultural heritage.
Hallmarking is the oldest form of consumer protection in the world but only proves the purity of the precious metal of products. Like a badge of honour, the Created in the UK mark will be branded on the inside of your ring by the Assay Office alongside its hallmarks; additional proof of authentication and provenance. You will also receive detailed information about your jewel's origins and manufacturing journey in your unique certificate of provenance.
All members of the Created in the UK scheme comply with strict criteria and a rigorous auditing process, which makes this a provenance mark you can trust.
