Our goal is to be at the forefront of the most important movement in the jewelry industry today. That movement is towards transparency, equality and responsibility in a trade that has long struggled to balance mankind’s desire for precious minerals with the values of conservation and human rights. Ours is an industry that celebrates personal achievements and embodies the most cherished moments in life. Often jewelry is a physical representation of love itself. How can we, the producers of these most hallowed tokens of affection, not take every action and precaution to ensure that the materials and people involved have been treated with respect and that business is operating at the highest level of responsibility.
This endeavor is especially challenging in a global market place when so many hands are involved from the source of the materials to the final product and there is so much at stake in terms of money to be made. The industry as a whole recognizes the need to change the way resources are tracked and handled to create much greater transparency throughout the entire process. The largest producing and manufacturing companies are working to set standards and protocols for the industry to follow and at the same time independent jewelers, craftsmen are consumers themselves are demanding a change to the status quo. By working together we will usher in a new standard that will protect the earth and its inhabitants and keep our most treasured moments sacred.
