Fairtrade Gold pieces by Ute Decker:
Fairtrade Gold & Silver has the world’s most stringent traceability and transparency standards. Empowering artisanal mining communities thanks to social and environmental improvements. Importantly, the system is fully audited by an independent 3rd party to offer consumers full confidence.
The Fairtrade Gold collection by Ute Decker reflects in its minimalist, clean and pure lines the purity of the gold’s provenance. Pieces are individually handcrafted as unique one-off pieces or in a limited edition series and feature the Fairtrade stamp next to the traditional hallmark, to guarantee the gold’s fair provenance in each piece.
"Ute Decker is one of Europe's leading designer jewellers
and her commitment to Fairtrade Gold
is a great example to us all"
Use of Fairtrade metals means the world’s highest environmental & social & ethical standards:
Working in Fairtrade Gold & Fairtrade Silver sourced via the Fairtrade system guarantees the world’s most advanced transparency through a fully traceable and independently monitored system far exceeding any other industry trade guidance, standards or legislation.
If Fairtrade Silver is not available, recycled silver is sourced from Capella, a refinery committed
to high ethical standards who is also a UK refiner approved for Fairtrade metals.
