Fairtrade and Conflict Free Diamonds
There is no escaping the fact that there are many environmental and ethical issues and challenges with in the jewellery industry, specifically around gold and diamond mining. I have been involved in searching for more environmental choices for a large part of my career, and am really pleased to be able to offer a fair trade option.
The diamonds I source are from certified Kimberly Process dealers, although this in itself is not without issues.
Here is a link to an informative article from the Guardian explaining the work Fairtrade is doing in small mining villages around the world.
