the PURE collection -
celebrating the unique beauty
of Fairtrade Gold
one of the world’s first jewellers to launch a collection in Fairtrade Gold, ute decker selects only the finest sustainable materials, either 100% recycled and increasingly Fairtrade Silver as well as Fairtrade Gold sourced from the Sotrami artisanal mining cooperative in the highlands of Peru to hand-craft each individual piece.
The Fairtrade Gold collection PURE reflects in its minimalist, clean and pure lines the purity of the gold’s provenance. Pieces from the PURE collection are individually handcrafted in a limited edition series and feature the Fairtrade ‘jewel-stamp’ next to the traditional hallmark, to guarantee the gold’s fair provenance in each piece.
"We consume and create objects that in turn facilitate our understanding of who we are as well as who we can be. The relationship between form, context, value and meaning in artifacts and the built environment has interested me for a long time, you might call it the question of ‘social beauty’ – the integrity of inner and outer beauty, of ethics and aesthetics.
As the daughter of artisanal wine makers, I value the sense of terroir - of knowing the full provenance, the country, the region, the exact hilltop from which my Fairtrade Gold is collected by artisanal small scale miners in a manner that is informed by environmental stewardship and social justice.
I treasure sharing with the wearers of my pieces the rare luxury of this beautiful story of a proud provenance and sense of terroir which enriches each piece with an additional layer of joy and meaning."
