For me, an outfit never feels complete until I layer on a few pieces of jewelry. Ethical necklaces have become a bit of an obsession lately and I wanted to share my favorite finds with you. These ethical necklace choices are perfect for wearing individually or layering.
If you're looking for fair trade artisanal made goods for both your home and yourself, Ten Thousand Villages should be bookmarked. They have a fabulous user friendly website but also several locations for you to pop into to browse. The star-catcher necklace is one of their best sellers and handmade in India from the Tara Project artisan group. I love that you can adjust the length of the necklace to suit any neckline.
Whenever I'm looking for new ethical necklaces Natalie Frigo is my first stop. Her pieces range from classic to unique. This Deco Small Agate Pendant will easily stand alone or be perfectly layered. It is made from recycled brass and agate from Botswana all hand crafted in NYC.
Ash & Rose is driven by three principles: sustainability, fair labor and empowering women. Their selection of pieces from apparel to ethical necklaces has something for everybody and if you're ever in Boston I highly suggest stopping in to meet owners Nea & Mary. This tube collar necklace is handmade in the USA.
By now you all know my obsession with Bead & Reel but did you know in addition to apparel they also offer ethical necklaces? At Bead & Reel you can shop your values choosing between Fair Trade, Made in America, Organic, Vegan, Female Founder or Giving Back. The Sorrento Necklace is made in the USA and gold filled providing a great affordable alternative to solid gold jewelry.
Anne Bowes is a relatively new find for me but I have fallen head over heels for her pieces. While on the more high end side she offers delicate pieces that you can wear everyday. Anne was heavily influenced by the jewelry in Venice and the fact that each piece could be reinvented. So if you're looking for more vintage inspired pieces the gold pineapple necklace is definitely for you.
EcoVibe is a great resource to find sustainable companies you may not have heard before but don't compromise on style. This Clio Necklace from Stowaway Jewelry is made from gold-plated brass and a nickel free chain. Sensitive skin ladies rejoice. This is definitely the ethical necklace for you.
Do you layer your necklaces? Would love to know which one is your favorite!
