The Ecosse Eclat Story
In 2017 I re-branded my business, Ecosse Eclat, in memory of my father, a company name he came up with in 1979, the new brand logo was inspired by a diamond design developed to emulate a forget-me-not flower. With this rebrand came my new vigour and my new ethical ethos.
Ecosse means Scotland in French and Eclat, brilliant success, dazzling display/striking effect, with my family roots based in Scotland and the nature of the business being jewellery I felt that this name would be not only be a nod to my later father but a fitting description for my business.
Every item of jewellery is crafted from first sketch to final polish by artisan jeweller Isla Wishart,running an ethical and sustainable jewellery business has always been forefront of Isla’s vision.
All items are hand crafted and can be customised in many ways from chain length to stone colour.

My belief, that we must do more to protect the World we live in and that beautiful jewellery should not cost the Earth.
My idea, to offer beautiful, delicate items of jewellery with a simplicity that can be worn every day or layer together in a mix and match style, every piece created individually, by hand to order with dedication and the opportunity for the customer to customise, design and alter their pieces.
My ethos, most importantly, a focus on using eco-friendly, recycled, Fair-trade and responsibly sourced quality materials. Every item as unique as this World and each person in it.
In reality this is not a new idea, in fact it is quite an old one, this is a return to a lost time, an age of the hand-crafted Goldsmith, unique pieces for unique individuals.
My Goal, to bring back an age of handcraftsmanship, to end our disposable culture, reduce waste and wastefulness and once again bring about a time of sentiment.
At Ecosse Eclat I whole-heartedly commit to an eco-friendly ethical strategy throughout the running of my entire business, I like to ensure that my small business does everything it can to look after our environment and reduce environmental impact on our World.
I achieve this is a variety of ways with a focus on reducing waste, reusing and recycling. This includes;
Recycling plastics – Plastics have become a big problem today, I have a special bin in the studio for plastics to ensure that every piece get reused or recycled and none goes into landfill.
Reducing power consumption – Keeping tech on low energy setting prolongs battery life for computers and phones.
Recycled and Fair-trade metals – Eco-friendly, recycled and Fair-trade metals from trusted and ethical suppliers.
Recycling scrap metals – All scrap metals, off cuts and filings are collected and reused or recycled keeping waste to an absolute minimum.
Making to order – Products are often handmade to order, this means we do not keep large quantities of stock or materials languishing around the studio that may get wasted, this can result in you, the customer, waiting a little longer for your order but also allows be to make bespoke alterations to most pieces including chain lengths and stone types.
Responsibly sourced gemstones – Gemstones and pearls are sourced from trusted ethical suppliers who treat their workers fairly providing a safe working environment, healthcare and a fair wage.
Conflict free diamonds – Diamonds come from ethical suppliers and are conflict free.
Recycled packaging – While gift boxes are available for your order, I also offer a bespoke 100% recycled and recyclable gift packaging option. Postal packing also has recycled content and is fully recyclable.
Digital age – We live in a digital age and as such where possible receipts and invoices are issued digitally via email to keep paper consumption at a minimum.
KIND WORDS from lovely folks
A very happy customer
“I’ve received the earrings, they are absolutely beautiful, already wearing them and loving them, they are exactly as I expected them: delicate, a little bit unusual, but also beautifully understated; and they arrived very swiftly – so a very happy customer”
I couldn’t be more pleased
“I couldn’t be more pleased with the two bespoke bracelets that Isla has made for my partner and I. She took extra time to research and obtain the perfect charms for us, and the result was amazing! We both love our new unique jewellery. Ordering was easy, delivery was fast and the items were well packaged and fantastically presented in a lovely gift box. Excellent and very friendly service, plus the items were finished to an extremely high standard – we have both received many compliments on our bracelets! We couldn’t ask for more and would happily recommend Isla to anybody looking for original and fun jewellery!”
