Our Sustainability Story
Our Bespoke Packaging
We recognise the importance the protection of the environment plays and we are committed to playing our part. Our packaging has been designed to keep your Loulerie pieces in perfect condition and prevent breakages, but not at the expense of the environment.
We have worked hard to find packaging solutions that meet our strict values as well as yours, our valued customers. As a result, you can now rest assured that each and every piece of Loulerie packaging is recyclable or compostable.
Our bags are fully recyclable once the ribbons and ropes are removed. The ropes are 100% cotton and biodegradable. The dyed kraft paper we use is not laminated, meaning that they are completely recyclable and biodegradable!
We encourage our customers to reuse our ribbon once it is taken off your gift wrapped boxes!
Our Gift Boxes
All of our gift boxes are recyclable once the magnets are fully removed! They are made of 50% recycled board and dyed kraft paper with no lamination, allowing them to be recycle safe!
Our e-commerce boxes are coated with a varnish instead of plastic lamination, making them 100% recyclable & biodegradable
How to recycle our packaging
When recycling our bags, please remove the ribbon and reuse it. Through our actions we hope to inspire others to adopt practices that reduce waste in order to protect our environment.
Our tissue paper & our care cards are 100% recyclable!
Our Loulerie Initial Discs
Louise works with the most talented professionals to create her 9k gold discs. “It was really important to me that where possible my pieces were made in Ireland, as I believe it’s important to support local trade."
"I love the idea that each piece has been passed through so many incredibly talented hands before it is finally ready to be sold.”
Our Fine Jewellery Production
We work with a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certified gemologist overseas. Loulerie has full confidence on the stone sourcing and production quality. All pieces are laser hallmarked in Dublin Assay Office, meaning they are tested and certified for fineness and quality and only receive the hallmark in line with the Assay Office’s strict and exacting standards of fineness.
Our Diamond Policy
Loulerie has a zero tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds and is passionate about ensuring that the business is based on fair and transparent trading. In sourcing our diamonds, we try to go beyond the measures imposed by the United Nations Kimberley Process, we try to determine where each stone was cut, polished and set so we can ensure that all the people involved in the making of our jewellery were given a fair deal. If one of our suppliers was ever found to be in violation of that process, we would immediately cut ties with them.
Our Team Loulerie Values...
At Loulerie, we only stock brands we believe in. Prior to working with any new jewellery brand we explore how their pieces are made and we favour designers who promote the use of artisan methods, recycled materials and sustainable production.

In the interests of complete transparency, we don’t claim to be fully sustainable, but we are committed to working toward a more sustainable future. We are working to reduce our waste as a company on a continual basis.
