Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Fine Jewelry Brand Launches
Meghan Connolly Haupt Proves You Don’t Have to Sacrifice Your Values for Luxury
(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Oakland CA - April 12, 2010 - No longer do consumers need to sacrifice sustainability for luxury or their values for beauty. Meghan Connolly Haupt jewelry launches today as the first sustainable fine jewelry brand. Going well beyond just “conflict-free,” Meghan offers consumers beautiful, finely crafted jewelry that they can feel good about purchasing, gifting and wearing.
As a pioneer of the sustainable fine jewelry movement, Meghan creates simple, classic and sophisticated designs that often allow for the unexpected. As examples, the Infinity Necklace incorporates a diamond toggle closure rather than a clasp, and the Reveal Earrings have a slight torque to expose the internal row of pave-set Australian blue sapphires. The Asymmetrical Necklace can be worn vertically or horizontally, while the Diamond Line Earrings can be worn long or short to best complement a look.
Each piece of jewelry under the Meghan Connolly Haupt brand is hand made in Oakland, CA from 100% reclaimed precious metals and ethically sourced gems. In most cases, the gems can be traced from mine to market and are third-party certified. Moreover, the jewelry tells a positive story of empowerment, commitment and respect - while being both alluring and fashionable.
“I really wanted to redefine luxury,” said Meghan. “It just seemed crazy to me that you could find sustainable jewelry made from hemp and glass and you could of course find fine jewelry, but that you couldn’t find high quality, sustainable designer jewelry. It is time someone stepped up to offer uncompromising design and luxury."
