Q What advice can you share when it comes to sustainable wedding jewellery?
A Sarah Naujokas says: First, think about any vintage or antique jewellery you may already own. Maybe you have a piece passed down from your family that you haven't worn because it's not your style that could be transformed to create something new and wearable. Look for small-scale jewellery makers who often work with brides on bespoke designs and remodelling; this gives new life to old jewellery and reduces the impact your big day will have on the environment.

If you're looking for new wedding jewellery, choose a small brand or a jeweller who uses recycled metals and materials to eradicate the need for new precious metals to be mined. Handcrafted jewellery is the best way to ensure your pieces are as ethical and sustainable as possible. Independent brands who make their jewellery in the UK often use local sources and suppliers, which means your jewellery has a much lower carbon footprint.

Finally, you'll want to ensure that your jewellery is made to be long-lasting and versatile so that it can be worn beyond your big day for many years to come, adding to its sustainability.
