Choosing an Engagement Ring
Choosing an engagement ring can be a frustrating thing. So many options, so many styles. But have you ever stopped to think about how they are made?
Arabel Lebrusan is a designer with a difference. She has spent much time researching the ethics involved in jewellery manufacture and therefore strives ‘to always deliver the most beautiful pieces, not just on the surface but also in the integrity of the process.’
Unlike the larger jewellery chains on the high street, Arabel Lebrusan can promise a truly bespoke piece that is designed purely for you. Their limited edition engagement rings boast only 25 of each edition ever made. How many of your girlfriends can say that?
And beyond that how many of us can say that we are supporting the little people in their crafts? What a wonderfully beautiful way of allowing the enduring traditions of jewellery making to remain for further generations.
One of the most important factors that make Arabel Lebrusan a must have is that people are not exploited to obtain the gold she uses. She uses Fairtrade Gold. ‘Chemicals and processes traditionally used to extract gold from the earth’ are not used here. She says: ‘All the precious metals and gemstones that we use are sustainably and ethically sourced.’
