Oria Ethical jewellery is dedicated to making beautiful, fine jewellery in a socially responsible way. They are passionate about respecting nature and take the greatest care in sourcing the most ethically produced materials available.
In doing this, they support small-scale, fair trade companies that have good working conditions, pay decent wages and do not engage in the use of child labour.
The metals, diamonds and coloured stones they use can be traced from the mine to the consumer.
Modern mining techniques have little respect for our natural world and few social concerns for the miners. Open pit mines have disastrous effects on the local environment, often displacing communities and destroying traditional livelihoods.
Their fair trade silver is purchased from artisanal miners in Bolivia, who employ methods that do not involve the use of cyanide or mercury for extraction.
