And while companies continue to swell the ranks of the Responsible Jewellery Council, which campaigns for responsible practices through certification, only a rare few have incorporated these...

Speake-Marin Kennin-ji Temple Masters Project

Created by four masters – a watchmaker and three engravers – the Kennin-ji Temple Masters Project features ornately engraved dragon motifs inspired by the Kennin-ji Temple in Japan.

The curse of gold?

After "Blood Diamond", a Swiss documentary, "Dirty Gold War", is throwing a harsh light on the luxury industry.
