sustainable practices

bluboho was created from its inception with ethical and sustainable practices at its heart.

we believe that businesses must play a role in protecting the environment for future generations. we strive to be stewards of the planet, making every decision with our values in mind. creating a more sustainable future begins with all of us realizing that our actions have an impact on the earth.

our sustainability and ethical practices are an ongoing work in progress. we are continuing to seek out new ways to minimize our impact and to help build a more sustainable future for all.

here are some of the ways we are working to minimize our impact

ethical practices & traceability:

it takes many hands to make our jewelry. we are committed to ensuring that everyone involved, and the earth from which these materials are taken, is respected and kept safe. traceability and transparency are crucial to ethical protocols.

wherever possible, we choose to work with vendors certified by responsible jewelry council, which is the world's leading standard-setting organization for the jewelry industry,and we are constantly seeking out ways to elevate and improve our practices.

what is traceability?

traceability is the practice that makes sure our actions align with our values. the process that starts with raw materials and ends with you wearing your jewelry passes through many collaborations and partnerships along the supply chain. traceability requires that we can pinpoint and trace the history, location, application, and distribution of our products and materials,

ensuring that our sustainability and ethics claims are reliable and legitimate. traceability applies to many areas, including product quality, safety, human rights, labour, environmentalism, and anti-corruption.

why is traceability important?

traceability ensures our integrity. by practicing traceability and being mindful of our impact on people and the environment, we are able to verify that the values and ethos of our business are being carried out, prioritizing good practice and respect for all along the supply chain.

recycled metals:

traceability ensures our integrity. by practicing traceability and being mindful of our impact on people and the environment, we are able to verify that the values and ethos of our business are being carried out, prioritizing good practice and respect for all along the supply chain.

why recycled metals?

using recycled metal alleviates negative environmental impact; by using recycled metals, we avoid contributing to the mining of new resources, therefore lowering the carbon footprint of our pieces and helping to reduce waste.

where do recycled gold & silver come from?

post-consumer recycled gold and silver can come from a wide variety of sources, such as other jewelry, electronics, and many others. it is always refined to its purest form and undergoes testing to ensure our pieces remain heirloom-quality.

ethically-sourced diamonds:

all the diamonds used in our pieces are sourced in accordance with the kimberley process, which is an international certification scheme that works against the circulation of conflict diamonds around the world by regulating trade in rough diamonds. more information about the kimberley process can be found on their website.

antique diamonds

very environmentally friendly, as they have effectively been "upcycled"

some of our beloved by bluboho engagement rings are designed using antique diamonds- creating a unique, wearable artifact of history. these one-of-a-kind engagement rings are designed and created around each stone that we hand-select for each collection. cut by hand years before our time, these unique stones contain a soft, romantic inner light and distinct organic personalities that could never be replicated by modern technology- think

candlelit dinners, glowing embers in a hearth, the light of a sunrise reflected in the eyes of your beloved.

beyond their inherently poignant appeal, antique diamonds have another feather in their cap- they're very environmentally friendly, as they have effectively been “upcycled” into a new design rather than utilizing a newly-mined diamond. by using diamonds already in circulation, we can avoid further impact on the earth.
