The Rock Hound are proud Fairtrade licensees and celebrated this with the launch of the brand’s first fully fairtrade gold collection during Fairtrade fortnight.
By creating gold nugget motifs The Rock Hound has taken the 18ct fairtrade gold back to its original form allowing the jewellery to be completely centred around the metal it is raising awareness about.
The varied range offers something for all consumers — from a sophisticated tie pin to a stylish pair of hoops and studs.
The Fairtrade certified gold from the collection comes from artisanal and small-scale mines that meet the Fairtrade standard.
This means that the gold has been responsibly mined and that the minders have received a Fairtrade minimum price and premium, giving communities in these developing countries the opportunity for better living and working conditions. The Rock Hound will continue to advocate for fairtrade gold next year.
