Sustainability & Ethics

Above all else, Gaïa Studio’s aim is to provide you with timeless jewellery that you can feel good about both wearing and supporting. With no shortcuts taken, we can guarantee 100% transparency to our customers, providing you with all the information needed to make well-informed, conscious consumer choices.

Our Gold & Silver

Gaïa only uses high quality, ethically sourced materials that are sustainably made from recycled 14K gold, 18k recycled gold and 14k gold plated vermeil over recycled silver. Our goal is to ensure you the highest quality possible, which is why we use gold coated vermeil with 3 microns of 18k gold. For comparison, industry standard is 1.5 microns and 10k gold.

Our Conflict Free Diamonds

Mined diamonds have sadly to this day been linked to conflicts, human rights abuse and state corruption. Our lab-grown diamonds in our maiden collection were chosen as an ethically sourced, conflict-free alternative. A lab-grown diamond is chemically, physically and optically completely identical to a mined diamond – the only difference being the way in which the diamond is grown. As opposed to a Cubic Zirconia or Moissanite, our diamonds are 100% real and handpicked through our trusted source in Antwerp, Belgium, with all those above 0,25ct coming with a GIA Diamond certificate.

Our Manufacturers

Choosing the right partners to work with was of paramount importance to us in the creation of Gaïa Studio No.1. Our chosen manufacturer is a family run business whose HQ is in London, who come with over 45 years of experience. We can guarantee safe, high-standard working conditions, along with fairly paid wages and many other great benefits for the workers on their plant location based in Thailand.

Our Recycled Packaging

Crafted by another of our carefully chosen partners, Wrapology, all Gaïa Studio jewellery comes wrapped in bespoke 100% recycled cardboard packaging, lined with 100% recycled Bamboo fabric. Experts in environmentally friendly packaging with over 20 years of experience in sourcing and manufacturing, the UK based company Wrapology are a perfect fit for Gaïa. Our jewellery boxes are also 100% recyclable

Diversity

Our dream is to inspire and empower women, cutting through any form of outdated bias. Regardless of ethnicity, age, sexuality, body shape, or disability, we want to stand with you, support you and help to make you feel like the best version of yourself. We hope to create a community of like-minded, environmentally conscious women, raising each other up to achieve each of our individual dreams.

We can’t wait to take you with us on this beautiful journey, as we celebrate diversity, transparency, flaws and everything that comes with being human.
