Why Is Ethical Ring a Unique Engagement Ring?
Fashion Guide

Why Is Ethical Ring a Unique Engagement Ring?

An ethical engagement ring is manufactured with fair labor and materials sourced ethically. Unfortunately, the diamond industry is riddled with corruption and employs harsh working conditions, including forced labor and child labor. When we talk about choosing the perfect engagement ring, human rights and environmental considerations must be top of mind. Diamond extraction has a history of violence, and precious metal mining frequently causes considerable environmental damage. Miners are frequently denied livable pay and adequate health and safety standards. Choosing an ethical engagement ring is essential if you are a socially conscious couple concerned with sustainability and decent working conditions. An ethically sourced engagement ring is a priority for socially aware couples, and happily, there are a variety of exquisite and cheap options.

Bardazzi Jersey received the 303 Tuscans Ethical Fashion award in Paris

The company was set up by Alberto Bardazzi in 1983 : its first name was Alberto Bardazzi Maglia and its target group the small “pronto-moda” (ready-to-wear fashion) of Prato . The idea of producing knitted fabrics placed the company in a niche market segment, where Alberto was able to express his talent. The products made in those years are milestones in the history of fabrics and it is no coincidence that they are exhibited at the Prato Textile Museum. They had a great impact on fashion and this led Alberto to change from being a sole proprietor to a limited liability company. In the following years he moved the headquarters twice in order to find a larger space while at the same time the turnover and the number of employees were increasing. In 2001 the financial newspaper “il Sole 24 ore” listed the Alberto Bardazzi S.r.L. as one of the best 500 companies in Italy and this was the most exciting period for Alberto’s professional career. In 2003 while doing new ambitious projects, Alberto died prematurely of a disease that did not take away his desire to work and to impress. It seemed the end, but it was a new starting point because the Bardazzi family was strong enough to draw motivation and stimuli to carry on with the company. Today it is run by a sound and experienced group of people and it is proud of having sales relationships all over the world.
