About Cred Jewellery - The Original Fairtrade Jeweller

Ethical engagement ringsCRED Jewellery are the pioneers in fairtrade jewellery, leading the way in creating a transparent ethical supply chain whilst offering beautifully designed jewellery collections, wedding and engagement rings.

Passionate about creating beautiful ethical jewellery, CRED believe that true beauty goes beyond aesthetics to encompass a responsibility to both people and the planet.

Founded in 1996, CRED (www.credjewellery.com) collections re-interpret the beauty of jewellery as items of both aesthetic and symbolic value for our modern world. Traceable stones and Fairtrade gold & silver are masterfully united in designs which emanate power through their beauty of craftsmanship, purity of materials and story of production.


Women mining Fairtrade GoldFair trade pioneers

CRED has worked towards the creating of transparent supply chains and fairtrade practices not simply by campaigning, but acting in business, starting CRED Jewellery as an outlet to sell the fine jewellery created from fairtrade gold and supporting the relationships built up over may years with artisanal mining communities. These standards we developed were used as the basis for the Fairtrade certification that was launched for gold in 2011.


CRED Jewellery was the first jewellery company to bring a fair trade wedding ring to a customer. The first jewellery to be hallmarked with the Fairtrade standard was created by CRED Jewellery for Livia Firth to wear on the Oscars red carpet in 2011. In December 2012 CRED brought the first Fairtrade silver to the UK, also making it available to other jewellery designer/makers.

In sourcing our materials we seek full transparency from mine to retail.

- We use natural stones and very rarely they will be heat-treated.

- Our diamonds wherever possible come from fully traceable sources. Read about our diamond policy.

- All our gold is certified Fairtrade and our platinum is supplied by our fair trade partners the Sotrami mining cooperative based at San Filomena, Peru

- We now have Fairtrade silver available and all our new collections will be made with this. Previous collections are made with 100% recycled silver, the most ethical option available at the time.


Fairtrade is an independent ethical certification guarantee of a product which has been responsibly mined and that miners are working in good conditions. The 10% premium paid for the precious metals (Gold, Silver & Platinum) ensures a good price to the workers with additional funds to invest in their community.
