Wow. What a year, right?
It’s been a wild ride for most of us, and there’s a great way we can remember it – through jewelry!
Whether you are seeking that special piece to remember a milestone, to pop-the-question, or for that spontaneous ‘just because’ present to yourself, Akind makes it easy to honour those life-changing moments with their range of jewelry.
From minimalist rings made of 100% recycled gold and lab-grown diamonds– fitting for 2020, right? – to delicate bracelets, this is a really unique company that is inclusive, modern and transparent. They strive to provide high quality and sustainable jewelry at honest, accessible prices.
Whether you choose one of their dainty pendants, rings, bracelets or earrings, Akind goes beyond traditions associated with diamonds. Specifically, they want to move beyond the stereotype they’re meant for men to give to women, and that they denote that a woman has been ‘chosen’ by a man through an engagement or wedding ring.
While Akind still respects such customs, they aim to respond to a more modern era by creating sustainable, lab-grown diamond rings that are designed for the occasion you decide is special. These rings are meant to lift your spirits, mark your achievements, and remind you of something important in your life. Like this crazy past year, maybe?
When you think of diamonds, you might think of ‘bling’. Huge, blindingly shiny jewellery that shouts ‘money’. But Akind is different. This isn’t show-offy, ostentatious diamond jewellery; rather, these are subtle, quality stones whose meaning is truly personal. Akind’s style is delicate, feminine and subtle.
Guilt-free Diamonds, Big Impact
Akind prides itself on its ethics and eco-friendliness. And for that reason, the Swedish-based company is committed to using 100% recycled gold and lab-grown diamonds.
The founder of the brand chose to use lab-grown diamonds in her pieces because she discovered that they offer significant environmental advantages over mined diamonds. Of course, there’s never any child labour involved in the making of lab-grown diamonds; nor could you ever call one of these stones a ‘blood diamond,’ ever. These are clean, ethical gems that can truly make you feel good about your purchase.
But that’s not all! Akind also aims to be sustainable by reducing their carbon footprint as much as possible. One way they do so is by partnering with the San Francisco-based Diamond Foundry, the world’s only certified carbon neutral producer of lab-grown diamonds. This is an important pairing, because yes, creating lab-grown diamonds takes significant amounts of energy. But through its commitment to using 100% renewable energy, Akind’s diamond growth process is Carbon Neutral® certified by the expert organisation Natural Capital Partners. In fact, Akind is the first Nordic jewelry brand to launch a collection exclusively produced with carbon neutral diamonds.
And did we mention they use recycled gold in their creations, too?
In fact, this is one of the most eco-friendly diamond jewellery brands we have ever come across. Their pieces are perfect for gifting at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, or any special occasion. For friends, family, or yourself!
