Bbc radio 4's you & yours
Following the announcement by the Fairtrade Labelling Organisations (FLO) and the Association for Responsible Mining (ARM) of new Fairtrade and Fairmined gold standards, David Rhode of Ingle & Rhode was interviewed by BBC Radio 4 for the You and Yours programme broadcast on 18th March 2010.

HISTORY This new ethical jeweller prides itself on sourcing all its high-quality materials to avoid the three big issues facing the jewellery industry: human exploitation, environmental damage and conflict (blood) diamonds. By working to guarantee safety standards, avoiding the most damaging effects of mining, and not using blood diamonds (where revenues fund wars), Ingle & Rhode produces beautiful pieces that you can wear with a clear conscience.
STYLE As well as their in-house collection of stunning pared-down contemporary jewellery, four leading UK designers have also created a luxurious collection of pieces - or if you want something truly unique, you can make use of the bespoke service.
