About

Fairmined Ecological Gold jewelry, unique, responsible and sustainable handmade jewelry.

Hi and welcome to my shop! It is so nice to have you visiting.

Your dream is my dream.

I’m Francesca and for all my life I worked hard to make little positive changes for making sustainable my acts and my way to be. I am vegetarian, my studio is completely eco-friendly and my Business Degree and a thesis on Sustainability helps me to better understand my only mission: making happy and green jewelry.

I also studied Fine Art in Italy, Graphics and Marketing, so all you can see in this shop is from my own, made with my hands and my soul and having a responsible production it is my first purpose.

FrancyJewel jewels are made using only sustainable precious metals as Argentium Silver, recycled silver, fairmined silver and Fairmined Ecological Gold.

I am a Fairmined Licensee since 22/05/2018 and I am so proud of it!

Why did I choose Fairmined Ecological gold?

Because Fairmined Ecological Gold is produced under the same strict standard for responsible mining as Fairmined Gold in terms of social, organizational and economic criteria. But there is one difference. Where regular Fairmined Gold is produced with responsible management and reduction of toxic chemicals like mercury and cyanide, miners producing Fairmined Ecological Gold do not use any toxic chemicals at all in their extraction processes, but only gravimetric methods (via www.fairmined.org).

So, Fairmined Ecological Gold is:
• Ecological
• No use of toxic chemicals
• Rehabilitation of native Ecosystems

We all know the issues in mining for gold and other precious minerals have been widely reported and discussed:
– Fueling conflict,
– child labor,
– environmental destruction
– mercury use,
– health and safety of workers
– gender inequality,
– economic exploitation,
– impact on communities

Then, the Alliance for Responsible Mining founded in 2004 is globally recognized as a leader and pioneer of responsible artisanal and small-scale mining. Their purpose is for artisanal and small-scale mining to become a formalized, organized and profitable activity that uses efficient technologies, and is socially and environmentally responsible.
Fairmined is an assurance label that certifies artisanal (ASM).
It is backed by a rigorous 3rd party certification and audit system that ensures that small entrepreneurial mining communities meet a world leading standard for responsible practices. Fairmined transforms mining into an active force for good, delivering social development and environmental protection, providing everyone with a source of gold they can be proud of.

Wearing a jewel should not mean suffering and poverty, no life or ecosystem should ever endure the highest sacrifice.

This is the basic principle of FrancyJewel ethic foundations. Jewelry, collections, processing tools and all craft processes tend to reduce to a maximum the ecological footprint weighing on Nature.

In order to make responsible and truly sustainable jewelery, raw materials that can harm animals or the natural ecosystem are not used in any stage of the process, which means that FrancyJewel not uses animal derivatives such as pearls, coral, mother of pearl, ivory, etc.

Precious stones are also the result of careful and cruelty free research. Only recycled antique stones, fairmined gemstones, Swarovski precious stones, ethical quartz, beautiful Swarovski pearls, synthetic gems such as Moissanites and cubic zirconia, for example, (very close to the brilliance of the diamonds), or stones that are not extracted by impoverishing and destroying flora and wildlife of unspoilt places.

FrancyJewel jewelry is born from the passion of those who have in their hearts a feeling of deep gratitude and absolute devotion to the immense beauty of the Planet Earth and to all of all the creatures that inhabit it, without any distinction.

I hope my jewels can accompany you in your adventures and show the way, that though often can be difficult, has a light that is the most extraordinary of all, because to emanate it are you.

In each of us lies the great responsibility to preserve the environment and the peace, even by making small positive and responsible choices every day. Reducing the impact of man's hand on nature by choosing products that do not alter normal course of nature should be a duty.

Ask yourself the right questions about where you are buying something and why, sometimes sensationalist and driven by big brands are not always the best and really choosing the best can help our system to reverse its inevitable destiny. We can all do the difference.

Why 'Vegan' jewelry
The use of animal components and derivatives is a common practice in every field of commerce, from food to the creation of jewels, which in nature should only preserve the light and the precious meaning of an unforgettable moment.
Wearing jewelery created with animal parts still today, has an anachronistic and counter-tendency, a bit like the fashion of wearing a real fur.

FrancyJewel is a brand that does not use raw materials and animal derivatives in its jewels. Specifically, we are not use:

- Cultured pearls, fresh water or salt water.
- Coral
- Leather and leather
- Ivory and derivatives
- Animal and derived bones
- Nacre
- Any other product derived from animals.

Having a good and positive Karma is very important to this shop.

I am the first in Italy to use the precious Argentium Silver and making cruelty free jewelry.

Each piece is vegan friendly, made loving nature and designed in my pet free studio, smoke free home with a free mind and with a smiling happy heart for you.

Everything in my shop is handmade by me and I take pride in the quality of my work.

I continually add new and special designs, inspired by nature and love around me. So stay tuned.

I am happily committed to your total satisfaction looking forward to serving you again and again. Shop with confidence!
