Award-winning designer Ada Zanditon has teamed up with British ethical jeweler Ingle & Rhode to create a one-of-a-kind pendant to celebrate the world’s first fair-trade and fair-mined gold. The striking piece, made from 18-karat gold, is inspired by the shape of the iceberg, stemming from Zanditon’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection (“The Cryoflux”) which references Antarctica. Valued at more than £3,000, the pendant is being given away at British Vogue online. Click below the fold for a video of the collaboration.

GOOD AS GOLD

The necklace is one of the first pieces to be made with gold that’s been certified to recognized social and environmental standards. The Fairtrade label guarantees small-scale and artisan gold miners a fair price for their labors.

“It’s an incredible chance to win a unique exclusive design that is not just a really elegant beautiful piece of jewellery that is worth a great deal but has the added value of being made from Fairtrade and Fairmined gold,” Zanditon tells Vogue. “I think it is at once incredibly chic and modern but also a classic understated elegant investment piece.”
