Gemma Tremayne Jewellery is committed to a future where we respect our planet, and the animals and people that live here with us. This philosophy is at the very heart of my life, and my brand.
As a small family-run business, and a huge supporter of small businesses in general, I believe we should shop small, locally, handmade, and sustainably...Always.
You've probably already noticed the heavily natural vibes and inspiration behind my jewellery, and that's because I design each piece with a natural cause in mind, to help you feel grounded and connected to our beautiful planet. I also believe in quality over quantity and strive to produce work which lasts a lifetime and more! So there's no buying the same thing twice.
I absolutely don't believe that your jewellery should be destructive to the planet! Far from it! It should be a celebration of the earth we live on: inspirational, beautiful and extraordinary. So, I strive to use only 100% recycled metals in all of my work, sourced from the most trusted suppliers in the UK.
What does that mean? Well, put simply, nobody has exploited our earth and created new mines, in order to create your new piece of jewellery. Pretty great, eh?
I also use only responsibly sourced and sustainably sourced gemstones. The gemstone industry is a source of huge financial, political and ethical conflict, and so I work with highly regarded suppliers to ensure that the gemstone in your piece is not a result of exploitation, but a labour of love.
But...I'm not stopping there!
My packaging is 100% recyclable, recycled and sustainable.
I hate the idea of landfill sites, and I feel a huge wave of guilt whenever I have to dispose of something that I suspect will ultimately end up in landfill. This is not a sustainable (or peaceful) way to live, so I have worked hard to find packaging that is natural, 100% recycled and 100% reusable and recyclable. I am currently phasing out my recycled jewellery boxes, to make way for natural jewellery pouches which can be used again as fragrance pouches in drawers, or to keep your jewellery safe whilst travelling....They're super cute as well as eco-friendly and I'm really excited to start bringing them into action in Summer 2020!
But, what if all that isn't enough? What if we could still try harder to help our beautiful planet? Well, I've got you covered! I personally pay for ONE TREE TO BE PLANTED WITH EVERY ORDER. Yep, thats right! So your jewellery will help to replace the beautiful forests in North America, Latin America, Asia, Australia and Africa, that us humans have slowly destroyed.
Every purchase you make is a vote for the future that you want to see. Let's work together to protect, save, and cherish our amazing planet!
