Fifi Bijoux - ethical jewellery

Fifi Bijoux - luxury ethical jewellery

Vivien Johnston launched Fifi Bijoux in 2006 to offer people an ethical jewellery option, sourcing gold and precious stones from fair trade small scale artisanal mines. 

The environmental impact of mining is also a big concern for Vivien who feels that the most sustainable solution to the extreme poverty which is suffered by the artisanal miners is to manage the land without the use of chemicals and to regenerate mined land by replacing topsoil and promoting re-growth of indigenous plants and trees.

Fifi Bijoux offers a bespoke engagement and wedding ring design service to make sure that each couple gets their perfect ring, within their budget. 

Vivien says: "I still get the jitters the day I know someone is being proposed to and it's a surprise. But as soon as I get the call ‘SHE SAID YES!' I have a glass of champagne and go about grinning for the next 3 days...To have played a little part in the romance of surprise proposals and wedding days is a real treat! "
