Our Ethics

Love Is Love!

We make jewellery for everyone, with clean genderless design at our core. We would be delighted to create the rings of your dreams. Non traditional is our happy place! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any queries or custom requests for you and your partner. info@edgeonly.com

 Sustainable Luxury

At Edge Only we use 100% recycled, refined gold in all of our fine jewellery. We use 100% recycled silver and EcoSilver sheet in our sterling silver and 18ct gold vermeil designs. EcoSilver is 100% recycled, 100% traceable and 100% audited by our bullion supplier. All of our jewellery is independently tested and hallmarked by the Assay office in Dublin Castle. Our chains are sustainably made for us in Europe by a Responsible Jewelry Council COP certified manufacturer. To find out more about Eco Silver  and why we use refined recycled gold instead of mined gold, please read our blog posts. 

Work Ethics

At Edge Only we believe in treating people fairly and work with local goldsmiths, Irish jewellery trade and suppliers as a priority. Many of our goldsmiths were trained and mentored by Jenny’s Mother Jane Huston [a multi award winning designer goldsmith and gemologist who set up the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland’s Jewellery Skills Course in Kilkenny in 1993 and ran the training program for 15 years]. 

Our goldsmiths set their own rates and workshop hours allowing them to work flexibly, at times that suit them and their young families. 

We are passionate about ethical production and about being fair in business - it has to work for everyone for it to be sustainable. We prefer to work with people, be flexible where and when we can and build lasting symbiotic working relationships. 

Green Credentials

Low footprint luxury is the goal. Sustainability has always been at the heart of the company and will continue to be a major focus for us. We try and balance luxury, jewellery protection and thought for the environment in all that we do. 

We work with a climate neutral luxury packaging company that uses only environmentally friendly water-based inks in the production of our gift boxes and that completely avoid the use of harmful solvents - for the sake of the environment and their employees. We use FSC certified kraft paper padded mailers for our online orders.

In addition, our black gift bags are beautiful - with a custom Leah Hewson art print down the side, neon colour pops and a foil logo, yet have been custom made with kraft paper and cotton handles as they are biodegradable (too cool to recycle right away so strong enough for re-use!). 

We will continue to find and implement more sustainable solutions in every area of our business from production to packaging as they develop.
