Ethical Fine Jewellery and Sustainable Brands

As a multi-channel global marketplace dedicated to showcasing positive impact jewellery brands, we believe we have a duty to our customers to share the basis on which we select brands for our boutique.

Aside from exceptional quality and design, supply chain transparency is a must. We and our customers, expect our brands to know where their materials come from, the people and processes involved and their impact on the environment and society as a whole.

Our brands are assessed on a five point sustainability criteria, ensuring that we remain true to our reputation as a progressive and supportive platform, whilst building trust and loyalty with our growing community of conscious consumers.

This, along with our alignment with the Global Sustainable Development Goals, exemplifies how La Maison Couture’s vision for a more conscious and sustainable jewellery industry can be transformative for both people and planet.
