As an earth lover, tree hugger, and all around outdoorsy kind of girl, I am committed to being kind to our Mother Earth. Each piece of jewelry is made by hand here in California by me and my small team using minimal waste practices.
I am proud to source from companies certified by SCS Global Services for 100% recycled content in their metals, and I have made it part of my design process to either recycle, or melt down and reuse all metal waste from previous designs into new creations whether it be castings or fabricated pieces.
ETHICALLY SOURCED DIAMONDS
All diamonds used in Amanda Hunt designs are either recycled or conflict-free. Our conflict-free diamonds are sourced exclusively from Canada for their high quality and the transparency of their origins. Each Canadian mined diamond arrives to me with details of its journey from mine to market.
Plating involves the use of cyanide or other toxic chemicals. Although these can be neutralized, in practice, electroplating can still be an environmentally unfriendly industrial process with potentially negative impact. Our metals are solid through and through. By embracing the natural metals without plating, there is no risk of “polishing away” or “wearing away” a coating. I encourage you to celebrate each metal as a natural material from Mother Earth and embrace the organic patina over time. But if you’d rather keep your metal nice and shiny, check out the tips in JEWELRY CARE for each specific metal.
All designs are shipped in recyclable boxes and packaging with least 50% recycled content and printed with soy based inks.
EVERY ORDER PLANTS A TREE
I care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. I'm proud to partner with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every order placed.
One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses like mine a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. I'm honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of my business model.
