See the Top Collections in the ‘Fairmined 100 Challenge’
The challenge invited designers and brands to create 100 collections of silver, gold or gold-plated jewelry crafted with Fairmined metals.
The Alliance for Responsible Mining’s Fairmined Initiative launched the Fairmined 100 Challenge in October 2021 with the goal of reaching 100 Fairmined collections of jewelry, gold coins, and financial products by the end of August 2022.
In its first year, the challenge topped its goal, with 97 total brands creating 127 collections.
For 47 of them, it was their first time creating an entire collection using Fairmined-certified gold, silver or gold plating.
The collections were then sorted into seven categories for judging by a panel of six industry experts.
They were: Celine Dassonville, founder/director of the Ethiwork studio; Annabel Davidson, editor of Vanity Fair on Jewellery; Elle Hill, founder and CEO of Hill & Co.; Victoria Gomelsky, editor-in-chief of JCK Magazine; Michelle Graff, editor-in-chief of National Jeweler; and Pernille Møbjerg, co-founder of The Jewellery Room.
The winners are as follows.

A recording of the webinar is available on YouTube.
All 127 collections submitted for the challenge can be viewed on the Fairmined website.
