Extraction of rare ore, use of chemicals, waste of natural resources… Can the luxury jewelry industry, often pinned on its environmental and social impact, reinvent itself?


This is the gamble of Emblème. A French brand that challenges the codes of jewelry and offers more sustainable alternatives. Their secret? Extracting gold from used electronic circuits. An innovative process that significantly reduces the environmental impact of jewelry production, when we know that 10 grams of gold in nature = 10 tons of rock extracted, while with electronic circuits it takes only 1 ton.


In this episode of On The Way, we open the doors of the Emblème workshop and give the floor to Agathe Gauthier, co-founder and artistic director of this circular jewelry brand.


She first shares her journey between France and Africa, then tells us about the genesis of the project, the backstage of jewelry manufacturing and the challenges of ethical and sustainable jewelry.

Between manufacture in circuit (very) short, recycled materials (from jewelry to packaging), and unique French know-how for a reduced carbon footprint; Agathe explains how Emblème is committed to offering refined and unique jewelry that sublimates you, while respecting the planet.


An inspiring podcast for those who aspire to a more responsible consumption, without giving up beauty and elegance.
