Ethical Fine Jewelry & Conflict-Free Gemstones

 

Quality Standards
To me, having a sustainably made, conscientious and high quality product is the most important aspect of my business. I strive to offer my customers approachable luxury as well as sustainable ethical choice. My pieces are built to last a lifetime in every aspect of their design, this is an alternative to the planned obsolescence of fast fashion that is prevalent today. I do not believe in trends, or fads but rather classic and unwavering personal unique style and offer heirloom pieces to cherish a lifetime.

Fairmined Gold

Our 14k Fairmined Gold is the leading industry sustainable and ethical gold choice. our gold is only from responsible Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM). It is backed by a rigorous 3rd party certification and audit system that ensures that small entrepreneurial mining communities meet world leading Standards for responsible practices. Fairmined transforms mining into an active force for good, delivering social development and environmental protection, providing everyone with a source of gold they can be proud of. While recycling gold is still a sustainable and ethical option, it doesn't provide a solution for how the majority of the gold in the world is obtained. Buying fairmined gold helps to invest in the social, economic and environmentally sustainable development of miners, their families, workers and the community.

 

 

Ethical & Conflict Free Gemstones

The gemstones we source are mined in countries that have a good track record for environmental protection and are not being leveraged to finance civil wars nor have a recent history of child labor practices. We buy directly from the gem cutters thereby supporting developing communities and small scale artisanal cutting operations. Other sources of our gemstones are high quality lab grown, or reclaimed vintage.

What are conflict free gems?

Conflict free or ethical gemstones is a term that refers to gemstones that are obtained through safe environmentally friendly mining and labor practices. The serious issues that plague the gem trade are: slavery, life threatening working conditions, financing civil wars, child labor,  and environmental damage. The supply chain is very corrupt and often times a stone will transfer hands so many times that the origins and sources of the stones are unknown. This is especially true for the precious gemstones like diamonds, rubies, sapphires and garnet. So extra care and research needs to go into sourcing these stones. The demand and awareness for ethical gems will help to eradicate this devastating practice and ensure we know how our gemstones are being mined.  

Here is our Natural Gemstone Sourcing Criteria:

  • They are the miner, or know the miner by their first name
  • they are the cutter, or know the cutter by their first name
  • The gemstone seller states that they do not work with companies that use child labor and ensure workers have safe conditions
  • The gems are mined from countries with a good track record for ethical labor and environmental safeguards like: United States, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Malawi.
  • The gems are not mined or cut in countries with a reputation for slave or child labor like Madagascar, known for child labor practices and Myanmar (Burma) whose forced labor sapphire mining is used to finance their civil war.
  • The natural gems are salvaged from vintage jewelry or of vintage stock.
