The Benchmark for Ethical Jewellery Since 2006
We are the first jeweller in North America to use Fairtrade certified gold. The Fairtrade Labelling Organization is the same body that certifies products such as Coffee and Cocoa, and our certification is subject to a quarterly report and review. You will recognize our certification by the Fairtrade logo that is stamped into all of our rings using Fairtrade gold.
We are the first jeweller in North America and the second in the world (Chopard was first–but that’s pretty good company to be in) to use Fairmined certified gold. The Alliance for Responsible Mining in the body that sets the standard for Fairmined certified metals.
Certified B Corps are companies that have met a 360 degree view of their ethical practices and how they change positively impact the world around them. There is a long audit process where we, like other companies, had to detail how our products are made, how we paid our workers, how we effected positive social change in our local communities among many other social metrics. As a certified B-Corp, we are proud to join international brands such as Patagonia and Ben & Jerry’s.
The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) is an industry-led group of jewellers that sets standards for everyone in the industry–from miners to retailers–so that consumers can be confident that a purchase from an RJC member has met the highest standard for ethical practices on both a product and management level. To gain and maintain our RJC membership, (we hold certification for both manufacturing and retail) we’re subject to 3rd party audits of our management and production processes.
