Want to feel even better the next time you're decked out in bling? Make like Meghan Markle and turn to ethically-sourced and sustainable jewelry.
One of our favorite brands leading the industry forward, Futura is on a mission to create high-quality, premium pieces with ethical gold-sourcing values. Did you know that 99% of the world's gold is produced by emitting toxic chemicals, including mercury, into the environment? Futura, which dubs itself the world's purest fine jewelry, is made with 18kt fairmined ecological gold - good for you and the earth.
Aside from being ethical AF, Futura works with renowned creative directors who craft authentic, modern jewelry inspired by ancient history, sourcing designs from global locations from India to Rome. Each piece is made by artisans in New York City.
Futura's Founder, Robert Donofrio knows his stuff. He is a former executive for big name brands in the industry like Bulgari, and has consulted for Cartier, Tiffany's, and Marina B., to name a few.
If you aren't already impressed, Futura has also partnered up with The United Nations to help implement their initiative to reduce toxic global mercury emissions caused by gold mining, which has been identified as "a worldwide crisis."
