What does it mean to buy jewellery ethically? Do you know where gold and gemstones come from? What are the latest facts? If you have questions about the ethics surrounding jewellery, then join designers and award-winning ethical jewellery pioneers Arabel Lebrusan and Anna Loucah as they host an intimate workshop on how to buy jewellery ethically at The Jewellery Cut Live at 1pm on Tuesday, February 19th.
Both Arabel and Anna have dedicated their working lives to the ethical jewellery movement, founding jewellery brands that deal only in traceable materials. They are also part of the team that founded the Fair Luxury Conference, which will take place this year on April 3rd in Edinburgh. Anna was also at the beginnings of the Green Carpet movement, working with Livia Firth to encourage A-listers to make environmentally and socially responsible fashion choices at high-profile events such as The Oscars.
Hear stories of trips to mines in far-flung places and how organisations like Fairtrade and Fairmined are transforming lives in artisanal mining communities. Discover how buying well can mean doing good. Also learn about what still needs to change within the industry. Arabel and Anna will also give attendees their edit of ethical jewellery to see at the show.
With just 20 tickets available, this will be a rare chance to get a deep understanding of the ethical jewellery movement – how it works, who the main players are, which questions you should ask before buying jewellery – and put your own questions and quandaries directly to Anna and Arabel.
Tickets for A guide to buying ethical jewellery, with Arabel Lebrusan and Anna Loucah include access to the main The Jewellery Cut Live show and a glass prosecco – or other drink of your choice – from the bar. There will also be complementary nibbles, tea and coffee, and a manicurist from celebrity favourite Nails & Brows will be on hand to give free express polishes to anyone who has purchased jewellery at the show.
Tickets to this intimate session are limited, with only 20 places available. The talk will take place at 1pm on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019, at The Jewellery Cut Live, held in The Apartment at The Hoxton Holborn. Tickets cost £20 and include access to the main show and a welcoming drink. Book your ticket here.
