Who we are
We are Emily and Dung, founders of Unique Eden, an ethical and eco-friendly jewelry brand from Switzerland.
In 2016 we took over the family-run jewelry business in Switzerland, which was founded in 1973. As eco-minded persons, we started directly to work only with recycled gold. But that wasn’t enough for us, we wanted a bigger change in our business and really change people’s minds! So we started Unique Eden to go far beyond the standards of the jewelry industry: we only use recycled gold and lab-grown gemstones for all the jewelry we create.
What do you mean by ethical and ecological?
We only use recycled gold and gemstones that are created in lab environment for all the jewelry we create.
We don't use gold or gemstones that require mining because of its impact on the planet and the unhealthy working conditions linked to mining don't reflect our values.
To minimize our impact on the planet, all our jewelry alos comes with recycled gift boxes and shipping packaging. We deliver them worldwide with carbon neutral and free shipping services.
Which materials are used for Unique Eden?
For all the jewelry we create, we only use recycled gold, lab-grown swiss diamonds and colored gemstones (sapphires and spinels) cultivated in Switzerland.
What is recycled gold?
Ethical and ecological, we only use recycled 18K gold. Our recycled gold can come from different sources such as: post-consumer material, old jewelry or metals for industrial use.
Gold can in fact be recycled and refined back to its original purity: a perpetual and sustainable circle for jewelry!
What is the difference between a sourced diamond and a lab-grown diamond?
So-called ethically sourced diamonds are mined diamonds that come from controlled origin to address the ethical issues caused by mining. Unfortunately, it still implies mining and its detrimental consequences to the environment.
Lab-grown diamonds offer a sustainable and ethical alternative as they are chemically, physically and optically identical to their mined counterparts.
Which diamond clarity do you use for your jewelry?
We use lab-grown diamonds in D, E and F color, the 3 most desired and we only use diamonds in VS clarity or better.
All our diamonds exceeding half carat come with a certificate from Swiss Diamond Lab, a leading company in creating a new diamond generation.
