OUR SHOWROOM & WORKSHOP
We make all our pieces in our workshop which sits within our showroom in East London. We are focussed on supporting and nourishing British craftsmanship and creative practices. For pieces that require specialist techniques such as engraving, setting, or CAD, Clarice collaborates with carefully selected skilled craftspeople in London’s Hatton Garden. All Clarice Price Thomas pieces are manufactured in London, with sustainability and transparency at the core of what we do.
Clarice Price Thomas believes in making responsible and sustainable fine jewellery. Our impact on the planet is something we are actively focussed on; constantly researching ways in which we can make our small growing business as sustainable as possible. By using only recycled metals and responsibly sourced conflict-free diamonds we’re ensuring our jewellery is made consciously and with care. We do not endorse mass produced factory-generated jewellery. All our pieces are made in London on a made-to-order basis. This reduces waste and eradicates unethical supply chains. We believe that jewellery made consciously is not only better for our planet, but more enjoyable to wear.
Recycled gold and platinum is generated by harvesting and reusing scrap metal and carefully refining it to remove any impurities. Once metal has been through this refining process it is of the same quality as it's newly mined counterpart. In our in-house workshop we carefully collect and recycle our scrap metal and filings to reduce any wastage and our London based caster uses recycled gold and platinum. The mining process for precious metals is environmentally destructive, so reducing the need to mine fresh metal is of the utmost importance.
CAREFULLY SOURCED STONES
We only source our gemstones from the most reputable and trusted suppliers who Clarice has worked with throughout her time in the trade. All our dealers share our zero tolerance policy for conflict diamonds, we only purchase stones from suppliers that work in close accordance to the Kimberly Process. A process set up in 2002 to prevent the trade of rough diamonds used to facilitate and fund conflict. We only purchase GIA certified white diamonds. With GIA being the most respected diamond laboratory in the world, we’re able to offer our bespoke clients stones where we can be absolutely certain of their legitimacy and quality.
