75 Ethical Jewelry Designs

From Artisan Art Clinics to Female-Focused Social Enterprises

— July 30, 2014 — Social Good
From artisan art clinics based in Kenya to female-focused social enterprises with an eye for design, these ethical jewelry designs approach positive change by coupling it with beauty because, in the end, true social impact is a beautiful thing in and of itself.

The price points and styles range from high-end metal carvings for a runway to lower-priced beaded jewelry that gives off the effect it was bought from a stand on a vacation. One of the most popular articles that SocialBusiness.org published on ethical jewelry designs is, without a doubt, Peacebomb, a company that upcycles shrapnel into bracelets that also "demines" land that contains bombs. The piece of jewelry is known as Peacebomb and now the brand is called ARTICLE 22.
