WE ARE AN
ETHICALLY SOURCED JEWELER
How we do business
A Better Way
As an Ethically Sourced Jeweler, we make purchase decisions using our integrity and conscience as well as our business acumen. We support the Kimberley Process and other initiatives which prohibit the sale of diamonds and gemstones to fund violence. But we go beyond that to also seek ways in which we can improve the safety and lives of those who mine them.Learn more about ethical- and sustainable-sourcing initiatives below:

We strive to only purchase from sources
who have a proven history of being ethically responsible:
Upholding Human Rights
We will never knowingly purchase from groups involved in human rights abuses. Our sources should be accountable and their methods should be transparent. They must not use funds to destabilize a legitimate government or support a civil war. In addition, their employment practices must not violate child- or forced-labor laws. Human life and well-being is the most precious resource in our supply chain, and it is our top priority to ensure it is protected.
Protecting The Environment
Mining of any kind impacts the environment. By following strict environmental standards, mining companies can minimize their impact on the local ecosystem. We purchase from sources who work within environmental guidelines and who invest in ways in which they can leave a lighter footprint on the earth.
Improving Working Conditions
Mining industries employ hundreds of skilled workers, and benefit the society of those who work in the local supply chain. In addition, millions of dollars are spent each year in these mining communities to fund local schools, provide scholarships, and support families. Beyond creating beautiful jewelry, our legacy must include improving the lives and creating opportunities for those at every level of our trade.
The Ethically Sourced Jeweler network promotes the purchase and reuse of diamonds, gold, and other precious gems and metals. Reusing these materials does not diminish their quality or value, yet it helps fill the demand for these materials. It’s one way we personally protect the earth and lessen the impact of mining on our environment without even leaving the store.
