What we do

Harriet Kelsall Jewellery Design has studios in Hertfordshire and Cambridge. Our jewellery is crafted in our Hertfordshire studio.

Our jewellery is made with the customer in mind, we make unique engagement ring designs - the same design is never replicated. Customers can sit down with their designer and discuss their perfect wedding, commitment or engagement rings. The designers are great at suggesting the different possibilities available that suit your budget.

The diamonds we use are conflict free. We work hard to make sure all the gemstones we use come from reliable suppliers. Harriet has spent years building these relationships, so we know the stones are mined and cut responsibly.

We are one of the first of twenty companies to use fully certified Fairtrade and Fairmined gold in our jewellery.

We have recently become certified with the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) and are the first UK independent jewellers to achieve this.

Ethical action

The main reason people come to us is to design their perfect engagement rings and wedding rings. We have made leaps and bounds in the last few years in terms of the ethics behind these rings. We are one of the first of twenty companies to offer fully certified Fairtrade and Fairmined gold for our jewellery.

We work hard to ensure that the diamonds we use are conflict free, and often use recycled diamonds in our jewellery. This means that in the long run less mining needs to take place for newly mined stones, as we can reuse older ones.

If the perfect ring for you is one that has impeccable ethical credentials then we want to be able to provide that in a practical way.

A few ways we're trying to make a difference

Recycling

Recycles

A lot of our packaging is made from recycled materials. We also recycle as much as we can in house. We often use recycled diamonds in our jewellery.


Reducing carbon footprint

Reducing carbon footprint

When items need transferring between sites we wait and do this a few at a time, instead of running one item back and forth.


Water conservation

Water conservation

We don’t use gold that has been leached with mercury that often then contaminates local water reserves when not handled in the correct way.


Supporting local producers

Local products

We use local goldsmiths and craftsmen.


Using cruelty-free products

Cruelty free

We do not use any diamonds or gem stones that exploit people in the supply chain.


Supporting fair trade

Fair trade products

We are one of the first jewellers to use certified Fairtrade and Fairmined gold in our jewellery, and are the Fairtrade Foundation's choice of luxury, bespoke jeweller. We also buy Fairtrade tea and coffee for our customers.

Twice a year we hold an open day, aimed at raising funds for the NSPCC through a range of activities. We have also raised money for Cancer Research UK with help from our staff.
