A wedding band has to be the most important piece of jewellery in anyone’s life. Each ring made to be worn every day for the rest of your life, a symbol of love and commitment. We are now producing wedding rings with artisans who have trained in goldsmithing and now they have a sustainable safe job which has the ability to change lives. We are choosing solidarity with the artisans and commitment to cleaner and ethical production. In a world in so much chaos this small gesture has a wonderful knock on effect for many. Fairmined gold from Bolivia, gold bands made by goldsmiths in Kabul, Myanmar and Syrian refugees in Jordan.

Meet The Maker

Javier

An Aymara Indian from Bolivia, Javier is the son of a Gold miner who began working in the mines of Tipuwani himself, at a very young age. He later moved onto goldsmithing and now has a tiny workshop in Miraflores near the coca market. From this little space, he makes beautiful creations for the indigenous Chola ladies of La Paz who invest heavily in the precious metal.

His wife, working as a domestic worker in Madrid, has been gone for many years. So he has had to raise their sons alone.

Javier enjoys creating beautiful, yet simple, earthy, natural forms deeply inspired by the pre-Colombian Goldwork of his ancestors and I love working with him.

Javier
