Ethical and Eco-Friendly Handmade Wedding Rings, Engagement Rings & Other Jewellery

Hidden by Nature, Found by Us, Designed for you

At Jacqueline & Edward, we work with recycled metals and alluvial river gold from across the UK to create beautifully artisan engagement rings, ethical wedding rings and ethical jewellery ready to be worn with pride and cherished forever. We’re a family business based in Yorkshire, our journey began over 30 years ago, when our co-founder Mark ventured into the world of gold panning with his late father, Edward. Now, Mark and his wife Jacqueline work together to create sustainable, eco-friendly rings with unique designs and details whilst supporting ethical charities such as trees for life.

How to Choose Your Wedding Ring

Choosing your wedding ring can be a daunting task.  At Jacqueline & Edward we have a large and ever-growing range of ethical handmade wedding rings which as one customer succinctly surmised, can cause “analysis paralysis”.  

Choice allows you to feel individual and connect with a design you like.  It also inspires some people to develop ideas for new bespoke ring designs which they would not otherwise have thought of and perhaps want to have created by us.  However, whilst variety is the spice of life, we also totally understand the challenges it brings and the need to manage the decision-making process.

We went up to visit the workshop in Leeds and it was such a lovely experience to hear more about the workshop, the team, how the jewellery is made etc. We spoke about designs and styles originally just for my fiances ring, but then also for mine and nothing was too much trouble. As we

I am so glad I found Jacqueline & Edward! I was looking for an engagement ring from an ethical and sustainable team and I couldn’t have picked a better business.

We can’t thank Mark and the team enough for our beautiful wedding bands. Mark’s knowledge, help, patience and expertise from the river to the workshop visit to creating our beautiful rings was second to none. Our rings were a journey from panning for gold, being gifted family members’ bands to melt down, visiting the workshop

Our Wedding and Engagement Rings Will Always be Made Responsibly

Natural gold is alloyed with ethically sourced recycled gold in our range of handcrafted eco-friendly wedding rings. Our insistence on using recycled metal and sustainably panned gold dissociates our work from the often-harmful humanitarian and ecological effects of mining. This will always be the case.

Enjoy our unique wedding rings and other jewellery which doesn’t compromise our environment. Get in touch to discover how we can craft a piece of jewellery which more than meets your values while complementing your personal style.
