Sustainability at Wanderlust Life
At Wanderlust Life, we’re on a journey to sustainability. Nature is our constant inspiration, so we’re determined to develop practices that preserve and promote the environment. And because we design and make our jewellery to carry intention, meaning and spirit, the happiness and wellbeing of our producers and makers is intrinsic to our work and to our products. This year, we're proud to have launched our B-Corp* journey.
*Certified B Corps, are companies verified by B Lab to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
Wanderlust Life is a woman-owned business that values individuality, creativity, health and personal development. Nearly 80% of our pieces are made by hand in our light-filled studio in North Devon.
We work with artisans in Jaipur and in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter that are certified members of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC).
All of our jewellery boxes and display cards are made from FSC-certified 100% recycled paper. By the end of 2023, we aim to use only 100% recycled paper and eco-friendly gold foiling across all of our packaging and gift bags.
The Make it Net Zero Programme via SWMAS Ltd calculated our annual carbon footprint at 1,184 kg CO2e per year. Alongside our investment in offsetting initiatives, we’re on a journey to becoming Net Zero.
Our commitment to waste reduction
Small runs yield less waste. We deliberately create our collections in limited quantities. We make the majority of our jewellery to order, while anything outsourced to our partners is produced in small runs. We operate in this way to ensure sell-through and to eliminate waste.
Sustainable materials in our designer jewellery
Our partners adhere to and promote the RJC Code of Practices, which is the global standard for responsible supply chains in the jewellery industry.
OPALS AND DIAMONDS
We use lab-grown diamonds and opals in our jewellery designs. They are genuine gemstones, but created in a controlled environment that means they are both eco-friendly and ethical.
GOLD & SILVER
All of the gold and silver we use is 100% recycled.
To produce our gold vermeil, we work with a firm of craftsmen in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter. The mining companies they use to source their gold meet strict standards across their operations.

And as a member of our Golden Gang, with 70 loyalty points you can enjoy this service at 50% off the regular price.
Repair & Care Services
To breathe new life into old favourites, we offer refurbishment and replating services on our jewellery to keep your pieces lasting longer and to minimise environmental waste.
“I’ve just received my necklace back after you fixed it. I just want to say thank you so much. I wasn’t expecting it back this quickly and to look so perfect and the fact it was done under warranty is just not a service customers normally receive from businesses these days. Me and my boyfriend are both so impressed and grateful. We will continue to support your shop over the years.
Thank you so much xx”
