Necklace & rings from UncommonGoods
You probably already know I'm all about the ethical and fair trade life, brands with a conscience are really important to me but they also need to be accompanied with great aesthetics and the wonderful handmade jewelry from UncommonGoods is definitely a match! They are a 100% cruelty free, B Corp online marketplace based in Brooklyn, New York. Btw B Corp is essentially what the fair-trade certification is but for businesses and it's only given to outstanding companies that use their power to solve social and environmental problems and if that isn't enough they donate 1$ from every purchase to a non-profit of your choice through their Better to Give programm. In LOVE!
The emerald ring and necklace are from an artist that stood out to me the most, Emilie Shapiro and the really awesome part is that I got to take a studio tour, read her story and feel more connected with the item and it's creator. Oh, and if you're looking for Christmas presents UncommonGoods have got you covered on that also.
Even more good news, they've teamed up with me for an awesome giveaway! If you want to win this handmade emerald and brass necklace worth 120€ here's what you gotta do.
