Not many people realize the impact that jewelry manufacturing has had over the years on our environment. Mining for precious metals and stone has polluted the earth. Chemicals and dyes used in the jewelry manufacturing process have poisoned our waters. Eco friendly jewelry manufacturers are aware of the impact that producing jewelry has on our environment. They are doing their own part to lessen the jewelry manufacturing footprint.
All of the Eco friendly jewelry companies listed below have their own little niche in creating Eco friendly jewelry made in the USA. This is a list you'll want to keep on hand for gifts or splurges you can feel good about.
Alex and Ani offers Eco friendly, positive energy products that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit. The brand has stores all over the US. The brand makes its jewelry in Rhode Island. NOTE: Not all Alex and Ani jewelry is made in the USA. Read descriptions carefully.
If you like Brighton jewelry, you’ll love Carolyn Pollack’s American made fashion jewelry collection. Unlike Brighton which is made overseas, Carolyn Pollack Eco friendly jewelry has been designed and crafted in the American Southwest for the past 35 years with 100 percent recycled silver and natural gemstones in New Mexico.
Eco Lustre partners with artisan designers who are environmentally proactive. They are not only using recycled metals, but they also use vintage stock and upcycling whenever possible. Eco Lustre Eco friendly jewelry pieces are individually handcrafted, and not made in bulk in a manufacturing facility. You'll undoubtedly find unique and gorgeous pieces for yourself or anyone on your gift list.
Great list! I am so picky about jewelry and have sensitive skin. I like looking at Etsy, but the sheer volume of listings there is overwhelming. I love the Dahlia necklace from Eco Lustre, and the price is fantastic! Their parchment cuffs are beautiful and intriguing. I also bookmarked the Nashelle crescent moon necklace.
I do not have any Alex and Ani jewelry as of yet, but have a lot of friends who do. I will definitely buy some in the future!
