About

House of Halos first ever dedicated sustainable philanthropic luxury jewellery house.

Creating bespoke beautiful sustainable jewellery from Ocean Plastics whilst committing to keep our oceans clean.

House of Halos conducts regular beach clean up collections of North East Scotland coastlines disposing of vast amounts of washed ashore ocean plastic pollution. Everything from fishermen ghost netting, cigarette lighters, straws, plastic bottles, ear-plugs, burst balloons, plastic cutlery, shoes but within the washed ashore ocean plastic pollution we source our “secret jewels”…… plastic bottle tops. All by hand process, we then commence a vigorous cleaning and re-melting process making every single recycled ocean plastic bead truly one of a kind. Wear House of Halos jewellery with pride knowing you are part of a sustainable movement working towards solutions and not pollution. Together we can make a difference, each time you visit your local beach pledge to yourself to pick up and place in a bin just 3 pieces of ocean plastic pollution.

House of Halos sourced the finest 925 sterling silver jewellery findings to compliment our recycled ocean plastic pollution beads. We passionately believe jewellery should be designed and created to last. Our sustainable philanthropy jewellery vision and passion are solely in relation to the “preservation of the planet for future generations to inherit” so we very proudly design and create jewellery collections which are simple yet striking but with prolific purpose and story behind each collection.
