We are delighted to share a new podcast featuring Estelle Levin-Nally's presentation, 'Ethical Choices in Jewellery: What to Consider and Where to Start', at International Jewellery London (IJL) last year.

ResponsibleSteel™ is an effective collaboration between actors at all levels of the steel supply chain, bringing together technical expertise to drive good practice and responsible sourcing.

We are excited to share a brand new publication - part of a three-part series analysing the minerals behind the so-called green economy. In Part One, we look at the rise of Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), and Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and the minerals they require.
Fair Luxury, of which Levin Sources is a co-founder, is an agent of change, a ‘not-for-profit’ group of committed volunteers, where our aim is to create a platform for independent discussion and not a manifesto. The selling exhibition is a unique opportunity to purchase and learn more about the story of a piece of jewellery from source to wearer – the materials, people, processes involved from the mine to beautifully crafted object.
