When it comes to wedding jewellery, could you use something old? or borrowed? – a family heirloom perhaps, or a second hand piece from an antique or second hand shop?

Nowadays they call it ‘retro’ or ‘vintage’. You could get it customised to make it completely unique to you. Certainly less wasteful and can be even more meaningful.

If you are buying new, think about the source, e.g. where did the raw materials come from?

Look for sustainable diamonds, recycled precious metals such as platinum, reclaimed gold, or even explore other beautiful materials such as wood.

Even lab-created stones can have less impact on the environment since there’s no mining or conflict trade involved.
