Situated in the market town of Otley in the heart of West Yorkshire, Otley Jewellers was founded in 2003 as an independent family jewellers that brought together traditional values with contemporary thinking.
As an Antwerp Diamond High Council (HRD) trained Diamond Grader and keen gemmologist from the very beginning I was concerned about the opaque nature of the supply chain when sourcing jewellery, gemstones and precious metals and the humanitarian and environmental damage it was causing.
It was not just the Otley Jewellers' supply chain that I was concerned with but also Otley Jewellers' own impact on the world around it. To this end, where ever it is practical, Otley Jewellers only used environmentally friendly, fairly traded and sustainable stationary, consumables and energy in store.
Then in 2012 using the knowledge, experience and contacts gained since 2003 I evolved Otley Jewellers into The Ethical Jeweller.
