Happy Earth Day from Satomi Kawakita Jewelry

Posted on April 24, 2023 by Sales Staff

"One thing I value so much about this industry is that there is virtually zero waste. Metal can be melted down and reused, stones can be set in a different design and given new life. Along with that comes this fascinating idea of permanence and mystery - these earthen materials took thousands of years to form and have existed throughout so many lifetimes, and now I hold them in my hands.

I love that everyday, we get to create such special pieces to be passed down and continue on their journey, while remaining eco-friendly and sustainable."

-Satomi Kawakita

 A piece of jewelry is more than just a combination of precious gems and fine finishes, it is a symbol of time - both future and past, a celebration of meaningful moments, and an intimate companion carried throughout the journey of life. It is in that future to come that we understand our responsibility to facilitate an energy efficient, ethically sourced, and sustainable industry to protect our planet. 

Satomi Kawakita Jewelry has long been committed to ethical practices through the sourcing of materials and methods of crafting we use. As part of this commitment, we are proud to use reclaimed brilliant cut brown and white diamonds up to 0.24 carats (4mm). Wherever possible, all other diamonds and stones that we use in our designs are ethically sourced and 100% conflict-free, in compliance with the laws in their country of origin and the Kimberley Process.

To minimize the environmental impact of mining, our caster uses recycled metals wherever possible. The material is refined in a responsible and sustainable manner, ensuring it is both ethically conscious and structurally sound. This way, we can confidently provide you with the best possible product while upholding our ethics. 

As a small business, all of our operations and business practices will be grounded in sustainability principles that make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. We provide safe, healthy, and respectful environments for each member of our team that translate directly into the lovingly crafted works we make.

From the earth, to our hands, and then to yours, we look forward to being a part of a brighter and greener future to come. 

Happy Earth Day from the SKJ Team!
