When shopping for jewelry for everyday or special events it's very important to consider how and where your jewelry was made. Whether you are looking for conflict free diamonds, fair trade gold, recycled jewelry, or jewelry created from natural materials we can help direct you to some companies that provide these products.
It all started 30 years ago collecting and making my own jewellery and now its a family business with my 3 children. We named the business Ivy and Co after my mother Ivy, the 'and Co.' part refers to our family.
Ivy was a smart, beautiful, cheeky, lively soul who loved life, the earth and her family. Naming the business after her was a way of honouring her character and keeping her spirit alive and keeping the family connected through creating.
We love working together and creating beautiful things that don't destroy our planet, there isn't anything better than that!
We live and create while following these 3 rules: reduce, reuse, recycle.
The jewellery pieces we make are one-off pieces and we only create small batches to keep our impact on the planet to a minimum. The majority of the silver & gold used in our new pieces has been recycled giving old gold and silver a new life.
Antiques are one of our favourite forms of recycling and we have collected many over the last 30 years. We know you will find a treasure you love.
We are Ivy&Co. and we care about what we make.
Nurture your consciousness: artisan jewellery for activists, healers, yogis & creatives.
Fair and earth aware: recycled & vintage materials. Recycled Silver, Vintage Gold & Upcycled Gemstones. Born and raised in rainy Yorkshire, I left around 12 years ago and began life here and there. Sicily, Andalusia and the Middle East are all places I’ve called home. I’m really curious, in love with nature and I tend to choose quite an unconventional way of living and working. I never actually planned to make this a ‘brand’ but around the same period, I’d been watching documentaries about modern slavery and the precious metal and gemstone industry. This ignited some fire in my belly and pushed me to find a fair way to make jewellery. Fair trade is a great step forward but it's not sustainable because gemstones and precious metals are finite geological resources. For this reason I only use certified recycled silver and carefully sourced vintage gemstones. I believe it's better to use what we have already extracted and give the environment a much needed break. I cleanse and re-energise the gemstones before they make their way to their new home. Musa Mundi is about nurturing that inner goodness whilst raising awareness and inspiring positive change. Many of the pieces are little reminders to continue doing well on your path and to live brighter, more conscious days...Recycled Silver, Vintage Gold & Upcycled Gemstones. 5% of profit will be donated to Maiti Nepal until 1st December. This NGO works to save victims of human trafficking and their efforts are truly endless.

Laraci Ethical Fine Jewelers believes passionately that beyond design and quality, to embody the love and caring that an engagement ring symbolizes, each piece must also be ethically made. This means the gems and metals used in the production of such an important symbol must follow the same rules of caring, commitment, and responsibility that we place upon our own relationships. For this reason Laraci focuses on moissanite engagement rings made of recycled fine metals. Most are unaware of the horrifying conditions poverty stricken miners are placed under or the thousands of children set to work to find the precious materials needed to make our computers, cell phones, and of course the symbols of our love: wedding and engagement rings. Please choose to not support this ecosystem of human exploitation. Using recycled/reclaimed metals, Laraci moissanite engagement rings in no way supports mining of any kind.

In 2014 when Lydia and now-husband Eamon were excitedly thinking of getting engaged, they each had their own concerns. Eamon worried about making the right choice - what if he picked something she didn't like? Lydia worried about this too, not wanting to waste money.
Then, there were ethics. Having worked in the mining, oil an gas industry after leaving university, Lydia knew mining meant blood diamonds and child labour, and wanted an alternative.
Sadly, they didn't feel like they got the fun experience and personalised guidance they had hoped for, and it made Lydia want to do things differently.
