Making Sustainable Jewlery Mainstream

Making Sustainable Jewlery Mainstream

Sulusso is the leading online retailer of sustainable designer jewelry (sometimes referred to as eco jewelry or green jewelry).

As there is no formal definition of sustainable jewelry or a third-party verification agency, the process is somewhat subjective. However, each Sulusso designer is carefully evaluated to ensure that our vendors not only comply with our policies for serving customers, but that they share our vision for transforming the jewelry sector into one that contributes to meaningful, sustainable development.

Sulusso stands apart from other jewelry retailers in offering designer jewelry that redefines luxury to include ethics and responsibility. Our featured eco designers go well beyond just "conflict-free" to offer you sustainable jewelry that has minimal social and environmental impact - jewelry you can truly feel good about purchasing, gifting and wearing.
