SUSTAINABILITY & ETHICS

At Daphine, sustainability is always on our minds – because we believe that producing pieces to treasure shouldn’t come at the expense of the planet. But we also believe that there’ll always be room for us to be better, and do better. That’s why we’re constantly looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and minimise our environmental impact. 

Less really is more. We’re passionate about encouraging conscious consumption – we only want our customers to buy pieces that truly bring joy. Daphine jewellery is intended to be loved for years to come, which is why we create timeless designs that can be worn season after season.

Mindfully made

We invest in the production of our jewellery so that it’s made to last. Every piece is handmade in our Jaipur atelier, with 18ct gold laid over brass that is Responsible Jewellery Council certified. The methods we use produce a resilient layer of gold that doesn’t easily wear away (and also happens to be hypoallergenic and nickel-free).

Here today, gone tomorrow

You may have noticed that we often sell out fast, or have pieces available on pre-order. This is because our collections are deliberately made in limited quantities. This greatly reduces waste, while also ensuring that you get a genuinely special product.

People power

We will only ever partner with suppliers who share our values and treat their workers fairly and with respect. We’re very proud of the strong relationships we’ve built with our wonderful artisans in Jaipur, and we visit regularly to check on working standards.

Thoughtful packaging

Sustainability doesn’t stop at our products. We’ve taken great care to ensure that all of our packaging is made from recycled materials, is totally plastic-free, and is fully recyclable. From biodegradable mailing bags and padded envelopes to jewellery boxes made from FSC-certified 100% recycled paper, we’ve got it covered. 

Our guarantee

We’re committed to creating pieces that will stand the test of time. So if your plating fades, or something comes loose, we promise to repair or replate your Daphine jewellery for free within three years of purchase or receipt under standard conditions of normal wear-and-tear.

Caring for your jewellery

To make sure that they stay looking their best and can be worn again and again, it’s a good idea to show your pieces a little love. We recommend taking jewellery off while exercising, bathing, swimming or applying lotions and perfumes. Store each piece individually – preferably in its Daphine pouch – and in a cool, dry place. 

  1. Select an existing ring that fits the desired finger.
  2. Measure the internal diameter of the ring (in mm).
  3. Use the below chart to determine your ring size.

TIPS & TRICKS

Your ring should fit your finger comfortably, snug enough so that it will not fall off but loose enough to slide over your knuckle with some resistance.

For best results measure your finger size at the end of the day and when your fingers are their largest.

Don’t measure when your body temperature is either too cold or too hot. Only measure when fingers are at room temperature.

If you hesitate between two sizes, always go with the larger one.

If you are purchasing a wide band, you will be more comfortable moving up a half size from your measurement.
