Water Usage: Water usage and contamination is a big issue in metal mining extraction which fuelled Eileen's decision to use recycled silver only as the base of it jewellery, meaning that no new mining processes take place. It also only uses gold from the Fairmined Iquira mining community in Southwest Colombia where they have eradicated dumping mercury into water.
Cruelty Free: No animal derived materials are used in Eileen products.
Vegan: No animal derived materials are used in Eileen products.
Circularity Centered: Eileen follows an entirely circular production method in which it uses recycled metals for its pieces. Any unsold pieces are melted down and used to create something new.
Friendly Materials: Eileen Jewellery uses recycled 925 sterling silver as the base of its pieces with metal suppliers accredited by the Responsible Jewellery Council. The scrap silver metal is sourced from all kinds of sources including the jewellery, technology and automotive industries, and is fully refined back to its chemical elements and re-alloyed to Eileen's specifications. Its 18ct gold plating is licensed Fairmined, which means that the gold is sourced from an empowered, responsible, artisanal and small-scale mining organisation in Colombia that transforms gold mining into an active force for good, ensuring social development and environmental protection.
Locally Crafted: Each of Eileen's pieces are handcrafted, cast, plated and finished in the UK.
Considerately Produced: Eileen has visited all of its UK-based manufacturing partners who have the utmost respect for the human rights of their workers and are paid a fair wage.
