For people who really care about where their jewellery comes from
Handmade in Australia
“Our goal has always been to create beautiful, high quality jewellery that is as environmentally and socially responsible as it possibly can be.”
Melinda Bailey, FGAA – Founder
Jewellery the next generation would be proud to own
The biggest responsibility we have right now is to preserve and protect our planet. Not just for ourselves but for future generations as well.
The EJA stamp that appears on every piece of jewellery we make tells those who come after us that you made a responsible decision, that you care about the environment and that you care about human rights.
If we sound right for you, we’d love to hear from you!
No matter where you are in Australia
At EJA we’re used to working with people all over Australia. That means we can help you create the perfect engagement ring, wedding ring or other special piece of jewellery no matter where you are.
Check out our testimonials to see for yourself.
Two trees planted for every piece of jewellery we sell
That’s our commitment to help offset the carbon cost of the jewellery we make
Because our responsibility doesn’t end when our jewellery leaves the workshop
The precious metals, diamonds and gemstones we use to make your jewellery are sourced in the most environmentally and socially responsible way possible.
Even so, manufacturing and transport still produce greenhouse gases we need to take responsibility for.
That’s why we do more than just prefer greener materials.
