Good morning lovely makers and creators, this morning I wanted to introduce you to the Allen Brown Gallery.
Featured above is just a small selection of the stunning pieces that the Allen Brown Gallery produces, this is master craftsmanship at its best. The Allen Brown team are dedicated and passionate about sourcing ethical and fairly traded materials, as well as choosing conflict free diamonds for the incredible jewellery pieces that the Allen Brown Gallery designs and makes.
We feel that it is the job of a proactive, innovative and forward-looking business like the Allen Brown Gallery to be at the forefront of new ideas, not just in design-which is what initially draws many people to them-but increasingly in this globalised world, to encourage people to consider the route source of their precious items.
Ethical Trading/Fair Trading
Allen Brown are well-known locally for using unusual gemstones and coloured diamonds, highlighted in their frequent use in collections over the past 22 years. They believe that the best way to achieve ethical trading is to deal with the mines and their representatives themselves. So Allen has been sourcing stones personally for a number of years, working with a few hand picked mines in Brazil they know that the workers are fairly treated and employed in safe working conditions.
Conflict Free Diamonds
Allen Brown Diamonds are purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict in compliance with United Nations Resolutions. Sellers guarantee that they are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the seller of these diamonds.
I have to say that my husband and I have had personal experience with the Allen Brown Gallery, my husbands parents recently had their 40th wedding anniversary and it was to be a year of celebrations. My husband wanted something extra special to mark this milestone and momentous occasion, the Allen Brown Gallery delivered on every level from the very first meeting, to outline sketches, to keeping on budget and delivering on time. Nothing was too much trouble for Allen and his team and care was taken to listen to our requirements and make something unique for the gift receivers, something that was very special to them in design and finish.
If you are planning a very special precious piece of jewellery for a loved one or family member this Christmas then you don't need to look any further the Allen Brown Gallery is the ONLY place you need to visit.
