Marrying beauty and environmental awareness, we told the story of a piece of jewellery from the earth to the wearer – the materials, people and processes involved from source to beautifully crafted object.

Championing makers for whom traceability and sustainability are as important as craftsmanship and design, this exhibition was the first of its kind, a tangible expression of Fair Luxury.

Alongside the jewellery, photographs by renowned Magnum photographer Ian Berry captured the intricacies of worlds at different ends of the supply chain. He has recorded ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances from 1960 onwards and here his prestigious lens turns to Fairtrade gold. Ian’s creativity and aesthetic draws a sharp contrast, creating beautiful images of the harsh reality of the artisanal mining sector and finishing with photographs of UK jewellers at the bench – to raise the profile of the need for sustainable and responsibly sourced gold.

Thanks to the Goldsmiths’ Centre, Janice Hosegood, Joanna Hardy and the Fair Luxury Team we are proud we made this happen[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
