OUR STORY

Jewels of Queensland is a jewellery brand that is born in Australia and made in Britain. Our jewellery celebrates the vibrant natural gemstones from Queensland, one of Australia’s most diverse and beautiful regions.

We guarantee that all the gemstones used in our collections are ethically mined. Our mining partners have a clear respect for the natural environment and comply with Queensland Government mining laws and regulations relating to the extraction of material and reclamation of mined lands.

Rod and Ian (brand founders) have a very personal relationship with the miners and a deep understanding of the world they live in. Their aim is to tell the world about the beautiful natural gemstones this part of Australia produces. Using only natural, untreated gemstones, Ian and Rod are full of stories of the unique characters who make a living in the outback, digging for the elusive gemstones.

All of our jewellery collection pieces are manufactured in either yellow, white or rose Fairtrade Gold.

We use Fairtrade Gold as it makes a real difference to the lives of small-scale, artisanal miners, their families and communities. Each piece of our jewellery has the Fairtrade Gold Stamp verifying its Fairtrade compliance.

By purchasing our Jewels of Queensland jewellery, you are gaining a piece of fine jewellery and can be assured that the miners of the gold were paid a fair price and that they are able to invest in building the future of their families and their communities, through education, medical care or environmental projects.
