Jewellery & wedding rings
Consider using vintage jewellery that has been handed down or borrowed from a family member or friend.
Perhaps create your own original piece of jewellery from brooches, beads and trinkets found at a flea market or antique shop.
When purchasing your wedding and engagement rings, ask the questions about where the gold and diamonds have been sourced. You can find lots of background on the web about "blood diamonds" and unethical gold.
