hat is the difference between cruelty free and vegan?

Thankfully, nowadays, people are becoming more and more concerned with what they are putting on their skin, and how the product was created, what it was created with and how humanely (if there is such a thing) products can be developed.

Sometimes, the easiest way to know whether a product is totally cruelty free, is to go direct to the source and ask. You

Our signature piece is the I Can Fly Swan Feather Ring cast in solid sterling silver and plated in 18k gold from a delicate swan feather found along the banks of Dublin’s Royal Canal.
