This SocialBusiness.org top list of ethical jewelry innovations spans some of the most out-there creations, like beer can bracelets to socially responsible bangles and fish leather eco watches.

Perhaps the most infamous type of “unethical” jewelry is the conflict diamond, which continues to be a significant source of diamonds despite the establishment of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) in 2003.

But here, these ethical jewelry innovations draw on charity models and social business to create products that attempt to have an impact on global social and environmental issues. Rather than creating a one-off design as a giving initiative, these brands have incorporated a purpose-driven mission into its business model, making them social businesses at heart even though some do have side charity project.

From jewelry-funded water purifiers to anti-war whistleblowers, this collection of ethical jewelry innovations means you’ll never look at your cheap fast fashion jewelry the same again.
