Ethics & Environment
Here at The Serpents Club, we want to create goods versatile enough to transcend the trends. We want to give our customers accessible pieces that they can cherish for years whilst doing our bit for the planet.
We understand the importance of using materials that do not harm the environment or the people involved in their production.

Factory Free Production
Everything is designed and hand produced here in England. Any parts of production that we can't do in our studio, we'll have done by local artisans to the trade. This gives our products incomparable quality whilst supporting our local community of makers; ensuring fair wage for fair work. Due to natural gemstones being used and everything being custom produced at a small scale, there’s zero percent chance you’ll be bumping into someone else with exactly the same piece of jewellery as you.
Packaging Made With Love (& Recycled Contents)
We source our packaging from a European supplier which is of the highest quality and made from recycled content. We think it’s important to not only be mindful of what our products are made of, but also what they’re packaged in. All of our promotional materials are printed on recycled card and our gift wrap is made from acid free tissue paper.
Made For The 21st Century
Jewellery built to handle what every day life has to throw at you. All of our fine jewellery is made with recycled metals where possible and is hallmarked to ensure quality. We only make costume jewellery using sturdy pure metals, like bronze, brass and steel, which are 100% recyclable, hardwearing and easy to maintain. If your jewellery develops a fault or needs some TLC, we’ll even fix it for free.
Drilling stones at an industrial scale takes heavy duty machinery and big baths of water to keep the stones cold and clean during this process. Over the past 3 years, we’ve been working on our production techniques to ensure we give our customers high quality products with minimal impact on the environment. All stones are individually drilled in house using collected rain water sources. We’ve even created a special technique which allows us to reuse the absolute minimum water to drill our stones without unnecessary water wastage or contamination. Any left over water that we’ve put aside for this process then goes into our office plants.
Reforestation & Minimising Our Carbon Footprint
We believe the only carbon we should be dishing out is in the form of diamonds, but until we can become 100% sustainable, we’ll donate a tree to One Tree Planted for every order placed to help improve our carbon foot print. We also buy 90% of our materials locally, and the 10% that we can’t get here, we’ll buy twice what we need to save long term emissions from shipping.
Mining metals requires a lot of energy and natural resources - that’s why we recycle scrap silver in house and source any other metals we need (silver, gold and rose gold) from UK and US suppliers who deal in ethically sourced and recycled metals. Buying something sparkly never felt so good!
Conflict Free Gemstones
No irresponsibly mined gemstones here. We only buy from reputable suppliers to the jewellery trade which we have tried and tested since 2013.
All of our gold and heavy silver pieces are certified by the London Hallmarking Office. Hallmarking is a way to guarantee the purity of precious metals. Metals are tested and marked with specified seals so you and future generations can authenticate the quality and value of your jewellery.
That’s right, we like to keep it green for Mother Nature (because hell hath no fury like a deity scorned). Everything from material packaging to office waste gets appropriately recycled on a weekly basis.
