Sustainable and beautiful: jewelry made from fairly produced materials - NZZ presents.

And Signum Fair Jewels is there! The article presents sustainable jewelry labels in Switzerland and abroad that either work with recycled gold, silver and gemstones or produce their jewelry from responsibly mined – fairmined – gold.

It is good to know that the number of jewelry designers and goldsmiths who choose their raw materials responsibly is growing. As a small family business, we are particularly proud to be able to take our place among the sustainable jewelry labels in Switzerland. We have been using ecofair wash gold from Finland (Suomi Gold) and Max Havelaar Fair Trade gold to make wedding rings, engagement rings and many other pieces of jewelry for many years.

The Swiss family business Signum Fair Jewels from Buchs consists of goldsmith Sabine, natural scientist Thomas and designer Marlene Hellmann. On offer: classic jewelry made from certified precious metals from small-scale miners and, where possible, with Fairtrade gemstones. Great importance is attached to transparency and sustainable production, and the company also supports the German-Colombian initiative Casa Hogar , which is active in a region in the southwest of Colombia that is heavily contaminated with mercury due to gold mining. Particularly noteworthy at Signum Fair Jewels: the range of wedding rings.
