Championing fine jewelry designers who stand for creativity and design excellence
Ethos of London is a fine jewelry platform retailing brands that put distinctive contemporary designs and expert craftsmanship at the heart of every creation. Showcasing jewelry rich in cultural heritage and storytelling, we work with designers who have an ethical approach to jewelry making and give back to society at large with philanthropic activities.
Made with fine materials, we retail jewels made in solid gold, from 18 karat to 24 karat, and in titanium, with quality precious and semi-precious gemstones. Our jewels are one-of-a kind or produced in small quantity and limited editions.
In a crowded market that often blurs the line between high jewelry and lower quality mass produced designs, we curate design-led quality jewels as a vehicle for legacy and self-expression. We guide our clients to make astute and satisfying jewelry purchases.
GIVING BACK TO ORGANIZATIONS THAT HELP WOMEN THRIVE
Our passion for jewelry goes beyond creativity and excellence and is grounded in a larger social vision. Our aim is to support social and cultural change that will enables all women to thrive. To this end we allocate a part of Ethos of London profit to support charitable causes that support women globally across a range of economic and social issues.
