Beautifully Fair

As we saw with clothes yesterday there's more to Fairtrade than just food and drink. Over the last few years the range of Fairtrade jewellery has exploded both in variety of styles and in price range. If you want a Fairtrade wedding ring, you can get it, or just a few pairs of earrings for stocking Christmas presents for a couple of pounds.

The story of how Fairtrade certification is helping is similar for all producers. A fair wage, more security and a helping hand with developing the local community. It's important to remember that this helps both farmers and those people who make a living by creating items, such as jewellery, who need secure buyers to continue their livelihoods.

So instead of a case study telling you about a particular farm or co-operative here's a selection of the lovely Fairtrade jewellery that's out there. Be tempted and buy some, you'll feel great every time you wear it and, trust me, you won't be able to stop yourself telling everyone it's Fairtrade too!

  1. Hello Jennifer,

    I hope you're well. I work with Traidcraft, and I've noticed that your link above to the Traidcraft site is broken. I was wondering if you would mind supplementing this link for the generic jewelry page:

    I hope this isn't too much trouble. If you'd like more information don't hesitate to get in touch with me at

    I hope to hear from you soon, take care and all the best for the new year!

    Kindest regards,

    Amy Cousins
