Ethical Jewellery Australia is mostly an engagement, wedding and commitment ring company. However, we have made other bits and pieces over the years and it seems a shame to not bring them out into the light.

This post celebrates some of the non-ring things that have been produced for our customers. (You can also check out our gallery for more recent non-ring things.)

By the way, if you want to have non-ring things made, we’ll happily work with you to make your dream a reality.

Meaningful jewellery

All of these pieces are significant. That has been a motivator for us all along, making pieces that have meaning for the recipient.

Each jewellery piece shown here was handmade by Ferdinand, Chris or Ann with recycled metals and Fair Trade or Fair Made diamonds and gemstones.

An experiment. One is a recycled diamond, and the other is a moissanite set in recycled platinum. I’m wearing these to see how moissanite holds up over time and whether you can casually tell the difference (you can’t).

Even though we specialise in rings, I think you’ll agree we’ve managed to make some very pretty ‘non-ring things’.
