More and more designers are building brands which are as sustainable as they are luxurious, so we’ve pulled together an edit of our favourite looks from our Positive Luxury #brandstotrust – and paired them with the smart, stylish women who are currently inspiring us to help create some positive change in the world.

RUNWAY2STREET X POSITIVE LUXURY DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: LUCA JOUEL

In the first of our Designer Spotlight series in collaboration with Runway2Street, we highlight awarded brand to trust Australian fine jewellery brand Luca Jouel, read their story here;

The intricate detail that adorns Luca Jouel’s fine jewellery expresses sophisticated yet organic beauty, offering custom designed pieces using ethically sourced diamonds, together with mixed precious metals and luxury hand finishes.

Tereena Lucas founded Luca Jouel as a result of her aspiration to celebrate raw and sophisticated beauty. Her love of jewellery stems from antiquity, as well as patterns of botanic and architectural origin. Tereena is devoted to a timeless style transcending generations, to create heirloom quality jewellery that holds personal meaning for the wearer.

Working with a team of talented craftsmen, Tereena uses harmonious combinations of hand-sourced rare and unusual diamonds, gemstones and mixed precious metals to create a collection rich in detail yet one that is organic and edgy, a striking combination of the traditional and timeless, with a modern sensibility.

Luca Jouel Reina Nostalgia

Luca Jouel has been awarded the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury, in recognition of Tereena’s commitment across all areas of sustainability. Positive Luxury connects brands and consumers that care, to inspire people to buy better and influence brands to do better. Luca Jouel’s efforts towards sustainability include her dedication towards sourcing conflict-free gemstones, her association with the alliance for responsible mining and her support of the Australian Childhood Foundation where a part of proceeds are donated to help the foundation safeguard all children from the trauma of abuse, violence and neglect.

Stones, Tones & Jewellery's New Gold Standard

OCTOBER 12, 2016 

 

There’s a new alchemy in the mix of precious metals, diamonds, and coloured gemstones.

Beauty’s new by-word is fair – and traditional hand-finished sophistication in jewellery is no longer legitimately luxurious unless it also comes ethically sourced and fairmined.

Luca Jouel

 Positive Luxury Blog - Stones, Tones & Jewellery's New Gold Standard

Positive Luxury is delighted to recommend brands doing good things – and doing good business too. Foremost is Australia’s Luca Jouel, awarded the Butterfly Mark, whose actions safeguard vulnerable children and support responsible manufacturers in the field. In addition, Tereena Lucas, chief designer, is a fellow member of the Gemmological Association of Australia (FGAA) and a member of the Jewellers Association of Australia (JAA).

The Butterfly Mark, powered by Positive Luxury, is awarded to luxury lifestyle brands that take pride in their craftsmanship, service, and design, whilst having a positive social impact and respect for our shared environment. The Butterfly Mark offers wordless reassurance that Luca Jouel is a brand to trust.

 Positive Luxury Blog Post - Stones, Tones and Jewellery's New Gold Standard

Other brands we can recommend as committed to integrity, fair play and luxury’s new good governance are Argyle Pink Diamonds, Stephen Webster, House of Garrard, Arctic Circle and Flamingo Jewellery.

An exciting story to watch is the discussion surrounding synthetic versus non-synthetic gemstones. Synthetic stones are the exact same product only their properties are born of a scientist’s high-tech lab. Current debate centers on whether market demand for these ‘too perfect’ stones will overtake naturally occurring stones (similar to what happened with pearls). Currently, it looks as though the earth’s natural imperfections are what’s driving demand – for an authenticity that is naturally beautiful. Hence the continuing need to ensure non-synthetic stones are mined fairly.

 synthetic diamonds

 The Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) is at the forefront of a growing global movement of miners, support organizations,  and market players, working together towards the positive transformation of the artisanal and small-scale gold mining sector globally. Formed to support Fairmined certified mining organizations, the objective is to help each other get on with fair practices.

Brand Preview Picks with Buying Director, Candice Fragis

So wonderful to wake up to this news this morning!! 

Buying & Merchandising Director at Farfetch, Candice Fragis, makes her top sustainable brand picks ahead of Brand Preview. Candice has worked as a buyer for over 12 years with Browns, Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-a-Porter and now Farfetch. She was behind the launch of Net-a-Porter’s sportswear arm. Candice chose Luca Jouel, Behno, Cecilia Hammarborg, ABURY and Ally Bee as her favourite brands!

Candice thinks Luca Jouel has a clear market and would sit well alongside other fine jewellery brands. “The aesthetic and design feel authentic and rustic whilst still having a luxe finish. The ethics are reassuring rather than being a focus which is important as it keeps the focus on the product,” she explains.

Tereena Lucas, Kian Dastyar for Luca Jouel of Australia, was Awarded: Honorable Mention Prize in Jewelry Competition for the Reina Nostalgia Project

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The design has evolved from the unusual and striking pair of spotty diamond slices I purchased in Hong Kong earlier this year. I wanted to capture their old-worldly charm and was reminded of some beautiful over-exposed photos I had taken one snowy night in the Old Town of Salzburg in 2010. The two necklaces have been created in 18ct yellow and rose gold. The pendant and chain designs were customed using CAD by Kian Dastyar where the pendants each consist of two parts that have been carefully laser welded together to encase the delicate slices. Combinations of high polish and satin matte finishes have been applied to the pendants and chains.

ABOUT Tereena Lucas, Kian Dastyar for Luca Jouel:
Tereena Lucas is a gemmologist and Australian fine jewellery designer. Kian Dastyar is a master jeweller and Australian custom jewellery designer.

About IDA

A handful of designers, thinkers and entrepreneurs created the International Design Awards in 2007 as a response to the lack of recognition and celebration for smart and sustainable multidisciplinary design. The International Design Awards (IDA) exists to recognize, celebrate and promote legendary design visionaries and to uncover emerging talent in Architecture, Interior, Product, Graphic, and Fashion Design. IDA aspires to draw attention to the iconoclasm of design world wide, conceptualizing and producing great work.
