At Loquet we believe that beauty and luxury should not come at the price of compromised ethics.
-Every piece is made with care, to last.
-Each Loquet is hand-finished so that every piece is individual.
-Protect our planet through sustainable practices.
-Support our immensely talented artisans all over the world by monitoring their working conditions.
-Create joy and memories through hand-crafted keep sakes.
Loquet was founded by environmentalist Sheherazade Goldsmith in partnership with Laura Bailey. A pioneering reporter in her field, Sheherazade has a legacy of shining a light on environmental practices and spearheading ethical policy changes
Sustainability and workplace conditions is immensely important and central to the way Loquet is run and developed. We are continually considering our impact on both the environment and communities that help us to realise our designs.
We oversee every aspect of our jewellery production, from the initial sourcing of our stones to the final shipping of each unique piece, to ensure the highest standards in design, quality and ethics. Our stones are exclusively sourced through respected suppliers. We work with conflict free diamonds sourcing only from companies that adhere to the Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council's System of Warranties, preventing the distribution of conflict diamonds in both rough and polished cut stones.
We have visited every single atelier we work with to ensure that our craftspeople are working in a healthy environment.
In addition, each of the ateliers are audited by independent workplace conditions organisations, which assess the environment, wages and health and safety of each individual worker. Without the skill of the expert local craftspeople in China and India who meticulously make our Loquet charms by hand with the utmost care, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish your beautiful, unique designs. By working with Intertek’s Workplace conditions assessment board and the Hong Kong jewellery trade association we ensure all artisans are treated in accordance with the Human Rights Act.
Each Loquet represents a story. We believe in preserving the story of our world for future generations to enjoy.
We are thoroughly committed to ethically sourcing each element of our designs, working closely with our suppliers to ensure that every aspect of Loquet jewellery is scrutinised under our own strict guidelines from conception to completion. Everything that we purchase and produce must be aligned with our core values.
We believe that it is our responsibility to innovate and be leaders in the industry by adopting the best sustainable practices as they become available, and to hold ourselves to the highest standards with every design we produce.
