QuayStones jewellery is inspired by the sea, coastline and fauna of Northumberland, and is manufactured in the UK from reclaimed metals. All QuayStones jewellery bears a full Edinburgh assay mark and many items incorporate seaglass, pearls and semi-precious stones.

In 2023 the company showed at Spring Fair for the first time and was selected as a finalist at both the NAJ Designer of the Year and Retail Jewellery Emerging Designer of the Year 2023 Awards.

  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    Central to QuayStones ethos is to step as lightly on the planet as possible and to bring awareness of environmental issues such as sea pollution, coastal erosion and species decline through our designs.
    Sustainability initiatives
    From the start we have used reclaimed metals to make our jewellery and ensure all our products are hallmarked for quality. We use found and reused objects in our designs and in the point of sale supplied to new customers. Our packaging has been chosen for its eco-friendly credentials and we reuse and recycle as much as we can.
    Pledges for the year
    We would like to reduce our carbon foot print further and will be looking at ways to save energy and time in production and supply. To this end we have invested in smelting equipment to reuse in house all the scrap metal generated in production.
    Sustainable Products
    Strata jewellery collection
    The Strata jewellery collection, cast from reclaimed silver, was designed to highlight coastal erosion as the pieces were based on the vanishing rock formations that can be found along the Northumbrian coast.
    Recycled silver jewellery
    QuayStones currently buys all it’s silver from suppliers that use reclaimed metal and from 2024 we will be smelting our own scrap silver to reuse in sheet and cast form. As always every piece will have a full Edinburgh office assay mark as a guarantee of metal purity.
    Sea glass Jewellery
    We have always collected sea glass on our walks and now we are using this in our designs. Because of the nature of this material every piece of our sea glass jewellery is unique.
    Social equity at your company
    QuayStones is very invested in the community of their town and is regularly involved in local events such as fund raising and beach clean ups.
    Our packaging is made with recycled content
    Our packaging was chosen from a range designated as eco-friendly and supported by EU regulations.
    We have products made from recycled materials
    Our products are made from upcycled materials
    Our bullion comes from Cooksons who now only supply reclaimed metals and we use sea glass in some specific designs.
    Ethical Considerations
    Fair wages are paid to the people who make our products
    Our products are made by people employed in good working conditions
    All our products are made in the UK and therefore the suppliers are all subject to UK employment law.
    Enviromental Impact
    We have a sustainability policy
    We consider the environmental impact when creating our products
    We have chosen our suppliers and packaging based on their eco-policies and use of recycling and eco-friendly products (Dahlinger eco-packaging)
