About this book

This book discusses the current trends in luxury and jewelry and presents how to make these sustainable for a better future. In the age of sustainability, we increasingly see how designers and consumers begin to think beyond a product's look&feel and operation, and are especially concerned about what has happened during its manufacturing process and what will happen once its useful life comes to an end.  Today, consumers value that every industrial product and process should be sustainable, beneficial for the people, the economy and the planet, and so is the case for jewelry.

Reviews

“Sustainable Luxury and Jewelry brings together a variety of authors who generally provide well-researched perspectives on the nature of luxury and craftsmanship in the twenty-first century … . As Pandora announces it will launch its laboratory-grown diamond pieces in the USA and jewelers boycott Russian diamonds following its invasion of Ukraine, those who are concerned with sustainable luxury will find much to ponder in this monograph.” (Lynda Lawson, The Journal of Gemmology, Vol. 38 (3), 2022)
