Prince William And Kate Middleton May Exchange Fair Trade Rings

The most famous wedding-to-be in recent history is even more precious now: Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are set to marry on April 29, 2011, may exchange fair-trade rings during their vows.

The couple, who have already decided to go the opposite way of Princess Diana and Prince Charles and hold a more low-key ceremony, were recently contacted by royal jewelers at Garrard in hopes they’ll use fair-trade bands of gold. Garrard is also responsible for Princess Diana’s wedding ring, which Middleton is currently sporting as an engagement ring.

With just a few more weeks of planning ahead of them, we hope the unconventional royal couple will bypass another convention: using gold sourced by exploited and underpaid miners. Garrard, along with 20 other companies, have begun using new, fair-trade gold found by ethically treated mine workers.

The charitable couple—who may live in an eco-mansion—are also asking wedding guests to donate to charity in lieu of gifts, but otherwise have kept pretty mum about wedding details. Here’s hoping it’s the greenest royal wedding yet!
