Within the jewellery industry, organisations work incredibly hard to craft delightful experiences from beginning to end for purchases that hold great emotional significance. Laings believes that sustainable practice is no exception to this rule and commits to creating exquisite jewellery whilst taking care of our planet.

From ethically sourced materials to caring for age old traditions, Laings ensures our jewellery follows a journey that preserves our beautiful world. Join us as we explore our practices and demonstrated commitment to sustainability.

Sustainable Materials

Sustainable materials

Ethical standards have taken a deserving place as a primary concern globally, and this is shared amongst the team at Laings. Our Marketing Director, Sally Alobaidi, champions the vision of a more sustainable future.

“Now more than ever, businesses have a responsibility to operate sustainably wherever possible, with no excuses. Over the coming year, Laings is committed to looking at all of our touchpoints, reviewing every aspect of the business and ensure implementation of more eco-friendly practices wherever possible.”

Partner Transparency

Laings assures we monitor the practices of our partners to affirm a consistent commitment across the company. Sally explains the importance of working alongside partners who share our values.

“Our standards certify that we only work with transparent partners, and that our jewellery is made with integrity. Sourcing exclusively from high standard supply chains, Laings provides clients with quality and ethically sourced diamonds by ensuring each stone is passed through the Kimberley Process.”

Tradition and Sustainability

The Laings workshops are no stranger to incorporating traditional craftsmanship into the creation of modern masterpieces. Laings goldsmiths use time-honoured skills that reflect the tradition of their craft, and the same can be said for the tools they use.

Sustainable tools

Serena Gough, Head of Service, encapsulates the fitting relationship between tradition and sustainability that can be seen in our studios.

“To be a Goldsmith is to embody a century old craft, in which the methods used remain relatively unchanged. For this reason the tools in our workshops are often handed down from generations before, goldsmith-to-goldsmith, in a cycle of reusing and reinterpreting our jewellery making instruments. While the goldsmiths have incredible expertise in crafting the fine intricacies of jewellery making, a similar approach can be used to alter the form and metals of their tools – providing endless opportunities to refashion instruments for more appropriate use. This often negates the need for buying new tools, in both a sustainable and magical nod to the historic nature of the craft.”

Extending the Life of Precious Pieces

Laings commits to prolonging the life of your timepiece with our outstanding after-sales service. We have state-of-the-art Workshops dedicated to restoring your precious jewellery and watches.
