  1. Was going to say that you better be on that list!
    Those last two really impressed me. The silver and blue topaz ring is so gorgeous and I love the way it is photographed. And those recycled rings! I want all the rings.

    1. Haha, yeah, I made sure to sneak myself in there πŸ˜‰
      I love those recycled rings as well. I think it’s so cool that they used old bottles — they even have relationships with local restaurants and such to collect them!

  2. I’m in love with all of it!! You know I’m a huge fan of Linkouture, that’s a given. πŸ™‚
    My daughters like to make jewelry out of my old bracelets and necklaces and lately they have been making beads. πŸ™‚

  6. Great Blog post on awareness of Eco friendly jewelry brands. I’m the designer at GreenTreeJewelry.com so i definitely have appreciation for this post.

    Thank you

  7. I am starting my own conscious jewellery line over here in Manchester UK with a huge focus on sustainability. It’s so difficult to find manufacturers with an eco friendly policy though! Do you know any great suppliers who use recycled materials? They seem to be like gold dust (pardon the pun!)
