BRAND PARTNER: Scéona
Anadyr smells of warm sand. She suggests calm, peace. It is life without a hitch, a long quiet river.
The thin band undulates as a wave, a comforting and soothing comings and goings.
The ring adapts to your mood, you can either show or hide the diamond or even stack it, because a wave never comes alone.
Materials Scéona uses 18k recycled gold for their pieces, reducing the amount of waste discarded while circumventing the need to contribute to gold mining. They also use lab-grown diamonds instead of mined diamonds, reducing the carbon footprint of each carat by 5.4 times.
Packaging Scéona is committed to avoid single-use plastic packaging. Their jewellery boxes are made from a solid piece of wood, sourced from sustainable forests, with their packaging partner ensuring that the balance and biodiversity of the surrounding area are maintained. Their shipping boxes are made from recycled cardboard, customised for each order to avoid material waste.
By using recycled gold and lab-grown diamonds, Scéona does not contribute to the mining industry and the associated human rights abuses.
All pieces are designed in Singapore and crafted in India by artisans at a partner company that pays fair wages, executes ethical practices, and ensures the safety of its employees. The company, founded in 1917, is ISO certified, and also has a charity arm: every purchase you make helps providing drinking water and education to the children of financially disadvantaged communities in Jaipur.
