Made of 100% recycled silver (925, hypoallergenic) and ethically sourced gemstones. 10-25% of the proceeds of each style of earring goes towards the education of children in different countries such as Thailand, Guatemala and Zimbabwe. Vurchoo Jewellery donate these proceeds to the UK based charity Teach a Man to Fish. This charity works with educators and young people around the world to set up youth-led enterprises.
The initiative empowers not only the children themselves, but also the communities they are a part of. Vurchoo Jewellery states that: “Every design supports education for those in need around the world. You have helped plant the seed of knowledge, a gift that will last a lifetime.”
The founder and designer of Vurchoo, Alex Angel-Benscher, started the company in 2015 after having spent 14 months travelling to different countries across the globe. Whilst in Cambodia, the idea which grew into Vurchoo Jewellery was sparked when he saw children creating and selling their own items to survive. Using his creative background as a graffiti artist and his desire to empower young people, he set about working with the children to design pieces of jewellery, inspired by their story and culture.
Not only do Vurchoo aim to fight against the unethical production of jewellery, they also prioritise sustainability with the Studs of Hope collection packaging now being 100% recyclable.
