Ethical Fine Jewellery Made Responsibly
What is sustainable and ethical jewelry?
Sustainable and ethical jewelry includes practices and materials that are eco-friendly and transparent. Over the recent years, the jewelry market has been producing low quality and poorly-crafted pieces of jewelry that are harmful to the environment. Maria Glezelli is a zero carbon footprint company that only focuses on hand-crafted, made-to-order jewellery exclusively made for its customers.
The sterling silver wire is produced in Italy by a certified manufacturer from silver grains made of recycled silver sourced in Europe. Raw materials and processes are continuously monitored and assessed via a robust Quality Assurance system and all silver used is fully traceable. Non-ferrous metals such as silver do not lose their chemical/physical properties in the recycling process and they can be recycled an infinite number of times with the aim of minimizing the need for mining.
Our jewellery plating is in large part entrusted to a small family run business in Greece. The platers take all reasonable care to safeguard the environment from aggressive chemicals and all processes are carefully monitored. Re-plating, when needed, might take place in Tuscany.
Our sustainable boxes are made in Italy with FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified cardboard and paper. FSC® certified paper is paper that has been harvested and produced in a responsible manner, therefore is eco-friendly and sustainable.
