If you're still in the search for a diamond engagement ring or wedding band, support local and ethical jewellers such as Covenant Jewellery. The company offers both bespoke and customisation services in addition to its range of engagement rings and wedding bands. At the same time, indulge in jeweller’s bespoke services and craft your own rings with conflict-free diamonds and/or ethically sourced gold and gemstones.
In line with providing fair employment opportunities for jewellers, Covenant Jewellery works with jewellers in Phnom Phen, Cambodia, the talents behind the artisanal pieces. By offering these craftsmen fair wages and benefits, Covenant Jewellery hopes to not only better the standards of their living, but to also preserve their craft.
