Valentine's Day is just around the corner! At COSH! we are convinced that spoiling each other with love is much more important than buying each other gifts. But of course there is nothing wrong with surprising your partner with a sustainable gift every now and then!
Before you go shopping for a Valentine's Day gift, We’d like to give you one tip: if you're being kind to your loved one, you might as well be kind to the planet too! How? By choosing a local, eco and fair gift! Like a beautiful, timeless piece of jewellery for example. One that your girlfriend, fiancée or wife will cherish forever and will never want to take off.
Would you like to pamper your partner with a beautiful diamond ring or necklace, a minimalist bracelet or earrings with unique natural stones? Below we share four inspiring jewellery designers with you where you can score a beautiful, ethical piece of jewellery!
Do you want your loved one to sparkle with a diamond piece of jewellery? Then we advise you to choose an ethical version. Mining diamonds has a big impact on the environment and moreover, people often work in poor conditions to mine the diamonds.
That is why the Belgian brand N-UE makes fine jewellery with lab-grown diamonds. These diamonds are made in a lab and are therefore ethical and eco-friendly. Important to know is that lab-grown diamonds are optically and chemically identical to mined diamonds! The only difference is in the origin, the impact and the traceability.
