Origin 31 started from the idea that jewellery and personalisation should be creative, conceptual, imaginative and expressive. Forget about simple letters on a charm bracelet or a birthstone in a pendant, Origin 31 design and make creative fine jewellery from concept to inspired reality. Jewellery should have no restriction, it’s an extension of your personality, so should become a treasured part of you. The Origin 31 collection is our way to illustrate that wearable pieces can still be vibrant and individualised by offering customisable options within our main fine jewellery collection. For the ultimate way to personalise, we collaborate with our customers through a bespoke service and begin a jewellery journey together to create a story with your heirloom jewellery.
Origin 31 has 20 years of experience as trained goldsmiths, a diamond diploma and working at various fine jewellery and fashion houses within production, design and development that enables us to turn any concept into reality using any media. Mother Nature is a constant source of inspiration, and we delight in using the most captivating of gemstones and metals. We apply constant and considered attention to detail, which results in crafting fine jewellery of the utmost quality.
Inspiration can come from anyone, anything and anywhere which is why we feel jewellery can be created for anyone, with any material; there are no constraints, only freedom to express individuality. Through a passion for education we aim to provide our clientele with guidance on the creative journey, so they can be fully immersed into their story and the process, which results in a personalised, wearable work of art. At Origin 31 we take pride and pleasure in creating precious pieces that are truly sentimental and become modern family heirlooms and part of your history.
Origin31 design and make creative and conceptual fine jewellery. Jewellery without boundaries, full of inspiration, made with the finest craftsmanship, that become modern day heirlooms.
All gems are from trusted merchants to ensure only ethical stones are used in the collections. Origin 31 values ethical 3rd world development and its impact on global resources.
OUR ETHICS AND SUSTAINABILITY
We have all been made aware of the precarious state our planet is in when it comes to the environment, in essence climate change. Which is why, even at the start of our company we wanted to have a complete 360 approach to both sustainability and ethics.be aware of the footprint we are leaving. We like to think we have a 360 approx to ethics and sustainability starting with our jewellery. Starting with our gemstones, we are conscious of the treatment of people that mine these gorgeous gems from Mother Nature which is why all our gemstones are ethically sourced from trusted and approved sources. Our diamonds are sourced in accordance to the Kimberley Process to ensure they are conflict free.
We made a conscious decision to launch our fine jewellery utilising recycled gold. This means that harmful substances like mercury and explosives aren’t used on the environment, or deforestation to get access to the gold. For our bespoke creations our clients can opt for their piece to be crafted in Fairtrade Gold too.
We have a different outlook to fine jewellery compared to most. As we make all our jewellery in the UK we can craft in any metal you require and can often personalise a piece at no extra cost. This is because we chose to carry no surplus stock, we have made only what we need ourselves and therefore mostly make to order. No fast fashion here!
We want to consider not only the obvious areas we can help the environment but also the smaller points such as the following;
* Our elegant jewellery boxes are fully sustainable with an innovative use of sustainable cardboard and wool.
* The decorative ribbon is made from wood pulp which is sustainably sourced and bio degradable
* Our display we use for jewellery shows is made from recycled plastic. When the perspex is scratched in the future, rather than throwing away the display, we can repolish it and use it time and time again.
* The electricity we use is from renewable sources.
This is just a start on our environmental journey as there are many more avenues we are pursuing as well as better technology being developed all the time that we shall be keeping an eye on.
