SUSTAINABLE JEWELRY 101 with
ANABELA CHAN

"The future is bright - we hope to bring you unexpected innovations and positive strides in both realms of laboratory-grown and artisanal mined gemstones - progress to make the world a better place one jewel at a time."


What is sustainable jewelry? How does it differ from ethical jewelry, if at all?

For me Jewellery is the most magical thing you can wear, it has the magic to empower and bring immense joy; for something so small that can be held in the palm of your hand, it can hold a world of emotions and memories. An object of art and craftsmanship, beauty and desire that can be worn on the body, close to our hearts. Sustainable and ethical jewellery are creations that are mindfully crafted with consistent considerations of both people and planet.

Why is having “lab-grown gemstones” significant to you as a designer?

For me, laboratory grown gemstones are a marriage of Science and Art. With its guaranteed provenance, they allow me to design freely with endless possibilities. We are the first fine jewellery brand in the world to champion laboratory-grown gemstones paired with high jewellery design and artisanal craftsmanship, always with a focus on ethical and sustainable innovations.


Every story begins by hand-carving the design in wax before casting in parts, then assembling, polishing and engraving in meticulous detail. Every stone is carefully selected for its brilliance and colour; then cut, faceted, polished and set painstakingly by hand. Every jewel is hand-crafted individually by skilled artisans, to create magical treasures of infinite colours and brilliance.


What should consumers look for when buying ethically-sourced jewelry?

You can look for circular recycled precious metals to fairtrade and single-mine origin gold. With mined gemstones, bear in mind that the provenance and knowing the origin alone does not make a gemstone ethical, it is when everyone along the supply chain from mine to market are not exploited that makes a gemstone ethical.

Explain why operating the way you do is important to you?

When I founded my eponymous brand on graduation, it was my mission to offer a different perspective in the industry - I wanted to create equally beautiful and fabulous one-of-a-kind jewels using laboratory-grown and created gemstones without the conflict, humanitarian issues and untraceable provenance associated with mining. I find a potent synergy in the juxtaposition of precious and non-precious, natural and manmade materials, it is luxury with a touch of humbleness.
