Emma Aitchison Jewellery


“I try my best to run an honest and transparent practice. I believe art, technology and nature can coexist and so you deserve to know where your jewellery has originated from.”

British born and based is independent jewellery designer, Emma Atchison. Her eye for design and love for the planet sparked a passion project that would later flourish into a respected, forward-thinking jewellery brand.

In her rustic studio, Emma designs gold and silver accessories that are inspired by the beauty of the natural world. She decorates her inner-city workspace with hanging baskets, potted plants, wooden furniture and ethically sourced tiles that reflect the ethos of her brand. Not only does she stock all over the UK and in Europe, Emma runs workshops, sells on the road and empowers people to inherit an ethical mind-set when it comes to shopping.

Toke Jewellery


Toke are a humble, yet passionate brand functioning mainly over Instagram. Scroll through their Etsy(link) page to find a selection of bespoke rings, necklaces and handbag accessories that are made from recycled sterling silver and nine pure gold materials. These are ideal products for those of us who love simple, subdued and classic accessories.



Jane Fonda, Laura Dern and Cate Blanchett are ambassadors for Pomellato, the first global luxury Italian fine jewellers solely focussing on ethical and sustainable design. Pomellato pieces have been on the red carpet, in global fashion weeks and all over national magazines.

We personally love their new line, The Ritratto Collection, and the delicate way they pair beautiful crystals with bold colour.

In January, Jane Fonda Wrote fondly of them in her Instagram post pre-Oscars.

“At Oscars wearing Pomellato jewellery because it only uses responsible, ethically harvested gold and sustainable diamonds.”

Carlota Guardia

As a young girl in Venezuela, Carlota spent hours with her aunt in her jewellery shop. It was there, surrounded by abstract handmade designs, that she quickly formed an obsession with gemstones. After being in New York, Barcelona and Switzerland for her architectural studies, Carlota decided to launch her own American jewellery brand in 2017 instead.–1wHpT3/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Despite being featured in GQ and Vanity Fair, Carlota’s collections have remained under the radar in the UK. We want to bring her into the limelight so that you can appreciate the delightful pearl rings, statement wrist cuffs, rope bracelets and geometric necklaces she has on offer.

Little Hurricane co.


“We showcase earth’s natural elements in wearable art.”

Little Hurricane Co. is a Melbourne-based, handmade jewellery label, established in 2017 by Liat Galon. After spending 20 years in the corporate world, she was surprised to find that becoming a mother brought out her creative side, so rather than returning to project management, she turned her artistic hobby into her work.

Liat creates all of the Little Hurricane Co. lines in her home studio and works with only environmentally sound materials, including eco-resin, which is a petroleum-free bio-based product. She collects botanicals from her garden or from the bush on the outskirts of the city and then carefully presses and dries each one, ready to be preserved into delicate, ephemeral, wearable art. True eco-friendly jewellery.

Her droplet earrings will add a delicate pop of colour to any outfit — the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe.

Sarah Winther


“My jewellery emerges in the encounter between traditional gold-smithing and sculptural jewellery art.”

Every piece of eco-friendly jewellery is handcrafted in Sarah’s workshop in Copenhagen. She strives for her jewellery and production to have as little impact on the environment as possible. By using environmentally conscious techniques and chemicals, she ends up with designs that are rough and ragged in the daintiest of ways. 925 sterling silver or gold and all stones Sarah uses are either fairtrade diamonds or natural gemstones mined under sustainable conditions.
