Every piece in our collections are individually curated and authenticated by Susan. Her philosophy is simple; she only buys jewellery that she loves and that meet her standards. She has an instinctive eye for unique pieces that are as stunning today as they were in years gone by. Many of our never-before-worn pieces highlight the synergy between vintage and contemporary style.
"Our jewellery is a renewable resource. Sustainability has always been at the forefront of our brand consciousness” explains Susan. “The fashion industry is one of the prime suspects of polluting our planet and we want to advocate sustainability by giving jewellery from the past a new lease of life."
As a supplier of vintage and rediscovered jewellery collections, sustainability has been a core component of the Susan Caplan brand since its inception. Our jewellery hails from previous eras, so we’ve always been an eco-friendly choice for our customers and as a small team of empowered women we operate with integrity and are committed to being socially and environmentally responsible, diverse and inclusive too. Additionally, we now have further committed ourselves to promoting sustainability by using recycled and recyclable materials for our packaging and shipping.
This ethos has permeated our office and showroom culture as well, where we have long recycled paper, kept printed materials to a minimum, and used recycled and biodegradable plastic.
As conversation regarding the health of our planet continues and intensifies across the world and every industry, we have been considering what more we can do. We take great pride in our “green” history, but it’s not enough for us.
Susan Caplan Vintage is transitioning to become a thoroughly sustainable company, exploring every avenue we can to further our commitment to the protection of our environment. To help minimise the impact of the carbon footprint on our planet our international couriers DHL are supporting projects that offset the carbon emissions of the shipment's transport.
We use Royal Mail for our UK shipping and returns who are leading the way in sustainable delivery, already having reduced their carbon emissions by 31.9% beating their 2020-21 target and are named ‘industry leader’ in the global Dow Jones Sustainability Index for four of the five years that they have been listed. By using Bio-CNG and the deployment of electric vehicles they are making sustainable strides towards helping our environment. In addition Royal Mail has accelerated its ambition to reach Net Zero by 2040.
We offer our signature gift packaging with each order - Your order will be packed in either our Eco friendly FSC certified box or our Eco friendly cotton pouch.
