About LuminaJewellery

Sales 3,098
On Etsy since 2018

Combining the natural beauty of gemstones with creative use of silver to breathtaking effect.

Lumina Jewellery is a family enterprise created in 2008 by Sara and Picky Saund based on direct and fair trade of silver and gemstone jewellery. We pride ourselves on the relationships we have built over the years with our incredibly talented team of silversmiths as well as the miners and cutters of the gemstones that we select. Our relationships are deeply personal and we offer ongoing support and care to our team. By paying an individual price for each piece that is created in the workshop we ensure that the craftsmen can dedicate as much time as they need to perfect each and every one without unnecessary pressure. For us it is about more than just selling jewellery, it is an entire ethical way of living and working together as responsible global citizens.

We visit stone cutters who can show us the raw material that they are working with as well as how the stones look when they have been cut and polished. This allows us to imagine how they will look once they have been mounted in silver. The creative process begins here. Seeing a bucket full of chunks of uncut stone is quite different from holding a beautifully crafted piece which is ready to be transformed.
We spend a great deal of time and energy selecting each stone which will be trans-formed into a piece of Lumina jewellery. It’s like hunting for treasure, sorting through literally thousands of stones waiting for the magical ones to jump out and be claimed. It’s a part of our creative process that I’ve always loved.
Once we have gathered our supplies of stones together, the design work begins. Some stones are set simply, others become part of more intricate designs. We follow the lines in the stones and tell the stories that we find there. We are very lucky to work with such a gifted group of silversmiths who bring our ideas
to life with skill and care.
For us it is about more than just selling jewellery, it is about an entire ethical way of living and working together as a family and as responsible global citizens. - Sara Saund

Our commitment to fair trade
Here at Lumina Jewellery we are committed to ethical and fair trade. For us, fair trade is more than just a label to print on our packaging, more than brand guidelines to comply with, it is the very basis of who we are and what we do.
As part of this commitment to ethical trade, Lumina Jewellery is a registered member of the British Association of Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers, or simply BAFTS.
About BAFTS
BAFTS members are not only expected to pay a fair price for their goods, this is just common human decency, they are also expected to:
support producer organisations in their social and environmental projects,
promote gender equality in pay and working conditions,
advise on product development to increase access to markets,
commit to long term relationships to provide stability and security,
campaign to highlight the unequal system of world trade which places profit above human rights and threatens our environment.
These are all ideals which we at Lumina Jewellery find very close to our heart, which is why the decision to become a member of BAFTS was not a commercial one but a personal one borne of our love for our fellow man.
