N-ue got its name from the French word ‘nue’ which means naked. Because the delicate pieces of fine jewelry are very lightweight, they float on your body and feel like a second skin. Thanks to the high-quality materials, the pieces will last a long time.
Mining diamonds is a destructive, costly process which has a lot of impact on our environment and ecosystems. Approximately 2,5 tons of the earth have to be removed and 126 gallons of water are used to uncover 1 carat of rough diamond. Besides that, the workers who mine diamonds are often forced to work in terrible working conditions. Want to know more about the impact of diamond mining on our planet and communities?

N-ue consciously chooses a more ethical approach by using lab-grown diamonds. The above ground diamonds are created in a lab and are polished in the same workshops as mined diamonds. Physically, chemically and optically, lab-grown diamonds are the identical to their mined counterparts. The only differences are only in origin, and traceability. N-ue pieces are made with the whitest and cleanest sustainable diamonds ensuring your jewelry to have a brilliant sparkle.
As we already mentioned in a recent article, gold mining is one of the most polluting activities in the world. Besides that, it also disrupts entire communities and incites wars. To limit the destruction caused by new mining, N-ue recycles and repurposes gold from existing sources like old jewelry and electrical components. The label only uses 18k yellow gold which is both air and water resistant.
