Sustainable jewellery brand Lebrusan Studio has announced it will now offer recycled diamonds across its collections.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe ethical jewellers said the offering forms \u201ca conscious movement\u201d towards greater use of recycled materials, as well as an \u201coverall realignment and focusing\u201d of their brand.\r\n\r\nThe vintage diamonds will date back more than 20 years, with each one featuring unique cuts. Every diamond will also be thoroughly assessed for scratches and marks before use.\r\n\r\n\u201cBecause most antique diamonds are cut by hand,'' says the brand, \u201cthey possess a character that can\u2019t be emulated. Each reclaimed stone is unique and full of personality; and we love them for that.\u201d\r\n\r\nSince Lebrusan Studio first began in 2008, the brand has focused on sustainability and ethical trading, offering 100% recycled platinum, gold and silver as well as Fairmind Ecological Gold. In 2011, Lebrusan became one of the UK\u2019s first ever Fairtrade Gold licensees.\u00a0\r\n\r\nArabel Lebrusan, founder and designer of the Lebrusan Studio, said: \u201cWe\u2019re in a state of climate emergency. Global warming has reached crisis point.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\u201cNo matter how fairly traded or carefully sourced, newly mined materials use up valuable resources. It\u2019s vital that we slow down the rate at which we\u2019re currently consuming water, land and energy.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe launch of this initiative follows news that Lebrusan has been shortlisted for the National Association of Jewellers\u2019 \u2018Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year Award\u2019.
