Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but eco-jewelry is the green girl’s soulmate. Dealing in recycled gold, silver and platinum, and recycled and cultured gems, Green Karat is a great option for eco-friendly precious jewelry, if you’re in the market for a gorgeous jewel with a responsible slant.

At the other side of the spectrum, these cute, cheeky wool felt rings are an ironic take on high-end bling. The flat-packed, wool felt rings can be assembled in a variety of colors to produce one heck of a ‘rock’. Available in blue, pink, white or chocolate, there’s a shade to suit every taste.

Charm your sweetheart with this eco-chic bracelet made from recycled jewelry chains. Made from 9 recycled strands, this bracelet is simple, versatile and elegant — a great everyday piece of jewelry, with a unique heritage.

$75 – Recycled Chain Bracelet


These simple glass hoop earrings are a perfect addition to an eco gal’s jewelry collection. Made from recycled glass bottles, these earrings conserve resources by keeping glass out of landfill.

$55 – Recycled Glass Earrings


These re-purposed vinyl cuffs just about embody the very idea of urbanity. Made of damaged or unwanted LP vinyls, these cuffs combine mold together music, jewelry design, and graphic design. Many of the designs often seem to be articulating a unique, polished take on urban life and the sights and patterns to be seen in the city.

$15 at the Inhabitat Shop


This recycled LP cameo pendant necklace takes an old-fashioned form and adds a twist of contemporary that gives it a little bit of attitude. The front silhouette cut-out is always made of recycled vinyl records, however, the back is available in beige acrylic, cherry wood, and black recycled vinyl. The pendant is designed by WrecordsbyMonkey and is part of their Heritage Collection.

$75 – Cameo Pendant

    I am in Houston , Texas and were looking for \”green conflict free ring\” for my fiancee and found two local companies in Texas http:/ and I found the prices on Green ORO were much reasonable and i saved $ 300 on the same ring that i would have bought from Green Karat. I highly recommend you to visit Green ORO website or go to their physical location and place your green jewelry order. Another thing i found was green karat operates has no retail outlet or store and mostly work is outsourced where as i personally saw all the processing and model of my Custom Ring at Green ORO retail showroom.

    Yes to [ Adv: Prices, Local Store, ORO Certificate of Authenticity, One Tree & One Ring at a Time – Great Concept and Cause ]
    No to [ Higher Prices, No Retail outlet , most of the work is outsourced, no assurance of being True Green once its outsourced to third parties ]

    Liza Shtromberg Jewelry in Los Angeles, CA has pendants and earrings made from shapes cut out of 40% post-consumer recycled resin. They have a lot of patterns and cool shapes. These are also being sold at her green sister store, All Shades of Green in Silver Lake, CA. Really cool jewelry!
