What we do

Fifi Bijoux uses fairly traded, ethically mined gold and gems from socially, environmentally responsible mines. The jewellery is made here in the UK by master goldsmiths.

Contact us to discuss our luxury design service, or our collection of ethical engagement and wedding bands.

Fifi Bijoux also offers ready-to-wear pieces, ideal gifts for bridesmaids and mother-of-the-bride, as well as a collection of cufflinks.

It’s an intoxicating blend of conscience and luxury.

10% of our profits from the ‘From Little Acorns’ pendant go to the Entebbe Women Association (EWA) Child Sponsorship Programme in Uganda.  Many of the children are in mining communities and these are HIV orphans.  The money raised from our ‘From Little Acorns’ pendant has so far sent 6 children to school in Uganda.  We have also collaborated with Laban from GoldGenie and he has built a website for EWA: entebbe-miners.org
