As an ever-growing, ethically minded business, we put a conscious effort into having our values be reflected in our supply chain flow. We believe in transparency, not only towards our customers, but also within our supply chain, who are carefully chosen based on their own ethical standards.
Apart from strictly abiding by The Kimberly Process, in order to ensure that our diamonds are conflict free, we also made lengthy inquires to ensure that none of our suppliers purchase or sell Zimbabwean diamonds where human rights abuses have been occurring.
In terms of our metal, we have chosen to purchase from recycled sources, and we also do our own in-house recycling (refining) of metal. If we choose to buy new metal, the vast majority of it will also be from recycled sources, with the remainder being sourced from New Zealand.
We are also excited to announce that we are now a licensed supplier of Fairtrade Gold.
