How to Shop for Sustainable Jewelry This Holiday Season

How to Shop for Sustainable Jewelry This Holiday Season

Heading into the season of gifting, you may wonder how your shopping decisions can promote sustainability. Selecting jewelry that is recycled and ethically sourced is a wonderful way to celebrate the earth and give a meaningful, lasting gift this holiday season.

I founded Gem Set Love on the principles of Recycle, Reuse, Relove, with this very purpose in mind. As a customer, you can confidently shop our selection of vintage, artisan, and handcrafted jewels with peace of mind that your purchase contributes to this mission. 

The unfortunate truth is that removing gems and metal from the earth can damage our water and our planet. At GSL, we use recycled and ethically sourced materials, and know where they originate, to ensure our pieces meet our standards.

Using age-old techniques, our handmade 720 line is crafted right in the shop, with metals selected from a green refinery. These pieces offer something special, knowing the earth and any people involved were respected throughout the process. 

As a business owner, I am dedicated to keeping our footprint small and employing thoughtful people who bring care, love, and joy to you, our customers.

Whether you’re buying a vintage jewel, an artisan jewel, or a jewel crafted in our metalsmithing studio, know that it has been cleaned, examined, crafted, priced, photographed, and packed by one of our incredible team members. Your decision to shop with us supports a small business, and the families of our amazing team.

We love what we do and are blessed to get to do it together, albeit now from a safe distance.

While many things may seem out of our control during these unpredictable times, we all have the power to choose thoughtful, sustainable gifts for our loved ones. This holiday season, consider giving the gift of beautiful, artisan, vintage or handmade jewelry, Sourced and Made with Love for the Planet and You.

Our unparalleled selection of vintage and antique jewelry as well as artisan lines made in house are available to shop online or through private, in-store appointments here if you prefer to shop in person.

Wishing you all health and happiness,
