Since we started Ethical Jewellery Australia way back in 2007, we’ve seen a lot of changes.

Probably the most exciting and momentous was the legalisation of same-sex marriage in Australia at the close of 2018, but aside from that we’ve seen the engagement and marriage landscape evolve steadily over time.

And with increasing concern about climate change and human rights, more people are choosing ethical alternatives.

Have your attitudes changed?

Marriage equality, feminism, housing affordability, fair trade … have any of these cultural and economic realities changed the way people like you feel about what’s important when getting engaged?

That’s what we’d like to find out.

How to take part

If you’re curious to know too, we’d really appreciate it if you’d answer our survey. (It’ll only take 2-3 minutes.)

It would be great if you’d share our survey with your family and friends too. The more data we collect, the more meaningful the results.

To take the survey, just scroll on down to the first question and press ‘send’ when you’re done.

By the way, all responses are confidential and anonymous. We won’t know who responds nor will we collect or store any of your personal information.

Viewing the results

To see the results, visit our Blog in late April, watch out for our next newsletter or keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook feeds.

Thanks in advance for contributing. We’re excited to find out how people think these days.

To help us understand if things like age and other demographics make a difference, we need to start by asking a few basic questions about you. (Remember, your answers are completely anonymous.)
