This stylish and adaptable one-off piece can be worn as either a brooch or a pendant thanks to a clever design.
The piece has The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core. It has been designed by Harriet to be worn in multiple ways, reducing waste and encouraging re-use. Entirely handmade by our talented goldsmith apprentice, Maisie, who dedicated just over 75 hours to the piece; it has also won a silver medal at the Goldsmith’s Craft and Design Awards 2020.
The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) goals aim to map out a “blueprint for peace and prosperity for all people and the planet, now and into the future”. Harriet commissioned our lapidurists to custom cut this stunning set of tapered baguette gemstones, which have been carefully colour matched to best represent one of the 17 SDG icons. Clockwise from the top, the custom cut stones are: garnet, yellow sapphire, green tourmaline, garnet, golden citrine, Sky Blue topaz, yellow sapphire, ruby, citrine, ruby, yellow sapphire, imperial topaz, green tourmaline, Swiss blue topaz, peridot, and two further sapphires, totalling 1.72cts.
To coincide with the core values and ethical focus of the United Nation’s SDG’s, the design has been consciously hand crafted from a single sheet of ethically sourced Fairtrade 9ct yellow gold, which totals 18.29 grams. The Fairtrade Foundation’s support for small-scale miners, their communities, gender equality and environments goes hand-in-hand with many of the Sustainable Development Goals put in place for 2030, including: ‘Sustainable Cities & Communities’ and ‘Responsible Consumption & Production’.
The Fairtrade gold was used responsibly, with any ‘cut offs’ having been melted down and used to create the fitting and fixings for the back of the brooch, as well as the cleverly designed bail – eliminating wastage.
