Design and Business Practice
Sandy Leong is proud to design all collections with sustainability at the core of her processes. Conscientious of the long term, global impact of mining, Sandy remains sustainable by thoughtfully constructing each of her pieces in recycled 18 karat gold and ethically sourcing conflict-free diamonds and gemstones. All production is done locally in New York through sustainable manufacturers who are transparent about their commitment to sustainability. Select natural materials are sculpted by artisans in Kenya, supporting local craftsmanship and striving to preserve traditional design methods in sub-Saharan Africa.
In an effort to encourage environmental and social responsibility, Sandy Leong is a member of the No Dirty Gold (NDG) campaign- an international initiative, ensuring that gold mining operations respect human rights and the environment. She has joined the ranks of Tiffany & Co, Cartier and Brilliant Earth, in their pledge to uphold NDG mining standards.
