Custom handmade ethical engagement rings and wedding rings
Since 2007 Ethical Jewellery Australia has been working with people all over Australia who choose to have their engagement rings and wedding rings specially designed and handmade for them. The people who ask us to create their engagement and wedding rings do so because they love being involved in the design process and they love the level of attention they receive as the design goes from concept to reality. They also care about ethical sourcing, and are looking for a handmade ring that will last for many generations.
We use only ethically sourced and cut diamonds and gemstones and responsibly recycled metals in our pieces. All of our jewellery is handmade in Australia by extremely talented and passionate jewellers.
As our designs are customer driven, we listen to what you want and work closely with you to fine tune every detail. You can ask as many questions as you like and take all the time you need to ensure your vision is realised. No matter where you live in Australia we can make it happen for you.
About the team behind Ethical Jewellery Australia
Ethical Jewellery Australia is a premium online bespoke jewellery business specialising in custom made engagement, wedding and commitment rings and other significant jewellery pieces. Also available is‘The Promised Ring’ an innovative alternative to presenting your partner with a finished engagement ring. All jewellery is handmade in Australia. Each piece is made with non-conflict, sweatshop free Diamonds from either Australia or Canada and Fair Trade or Australian coloured gemstones and recycled precious metal.
After a year of research and planning, the company was launched in June 2007 by Melinda Nugent and her partner, Benn Harvey-Walker.
Melinda, a jewellery designer and certified Gemmologist, is the driving force behind Ethical Jewellery Australia (EJA) and creator of ‘The Promised Ring’.When she learned of Oxfam’s ‘No Dirty Gold’ campaign; she signed the pledge immediately. Her resolve to provide an environmentally and socially responsible alternative strengthened even further when discovering through her Gemmology and further studies that the cost of mining and processing gemstones can be very high on both workers and environment.
At the time, a co-owner of a retail bespoke jewellery business, she made the decision to sell her interest in the shop and, with the support of her partner, Benn Harvey-Walker, launched Ethical Jewellery Australia.
She manages all the Gemstone, Diamond and design related tasks, tries to maintain the blog, looks after social media, business promotion and photography and tries (not very hard) to not be distracted by the menagerie. Melinda really needs an assistant. Melinda is a member of GAA(Gemmological Association of Australia) and Fair Jewelry Action
Benn is the Co-Founder of Ethical Jewellery Australia. He spent seventeen years as a marketing and management consultant before moving into building construction.As the jewellery industry is driven by high-quality marketing, Benn’s input has been crucial in developing EJA’s branding. His consulting experience continues to ensure EJA is managed in an efficient and conscientious manner – for the sake of the team and to ensure happy customers.
Lately Benn has become more involved directly in projects, he worked closely with Melinda to create the engagement ring design EBook and aspires to further his efforts in business development and marketing. Benn maintains the business’ LinkedIn profile and has taken over some of the writing duties.
He can also be persuaded to make coffee from time to time and is an extremely rare talent at Bananagrams (but Melinda is better at Scrabble).
