Sustainability

Gemstone jewellery of the earth, for the earth

Swimming in Stones set out to collaborate with the world's artisans to connect with people through jewellery that is respectful of craftsmanship, people and our planet. We are striving for a business that is socially, culturally and economically sustainable and we're continually looking at all areas of creation.

SIS Handcrafted

People

Our practices start with our team of artisans in Jaipur, who bring up to six generations of experience. Many are illiterate and have been taught at home by parents and grandparents. Taught one single skill, to the art of perfection, like our team of stone cutters. We believe in them not simply earning enough money to survive, but to thrive. We collaborate with them for the connection they have to their craft, their ideas and we celebrate their talent. Great emphasis is placed on simple, handmade designs that incorporate traditional techniques. Each piece of jewellery can require ten artisans to create. It is our desire to create opportunities to support the training of young jewellery artisans to ensure we keep the future connected to traditional practices.

SIS Amethyst

Product

Every Swimming in Stones piece of jewellery is made from natural gemstones. To create coral, we used a powdered stone which is coloured, nothing is taken from our reefs and oceans. We’re committed to supporting the artisans in our studio to find their way forward into sourcing sustainably and moving toward a truly responsible and ethical business. 

Production

Is deliberately kept to a small scale in order to reduce any unnecessary waste of our natural resources. Any mistakes are repurposed.

Packaging

Our proprietary Scuba Sac packaging is made in Australia. These pretty, practical pouches protect the Swimming in Stones jewellery and can be used for any number of purposes in future. The Scuba Sac serves to protect the pouch in shipping meaning we don’t require any plastic bubble wrap.
