Do Amore is committed to the environment and as part of this commitment, we are proud to use recycled precious metals. All of our rings are made from 100% recycled precious metals that come from suppliers who do not deal with the international mining community. Mining of precious metals can be environmentally destructive, and many mines operate with a disregard for the indigenous peoples and humane practices.
One of the bright spots regarding the precious metal mining industry is NoDirtyGold.org, a campaign that supports the efforts of groups working to end dirty gold mining practices, and has a set of golden rules for retailers to abide by. We are proud to have joined the No Dirty Gold campaign since the day we were founded.
Do Amore diamonds are conflict-free diamonds. In 2003, the United States passed the Clean Diamond Trade Act, which enacted U.S. participation in the Kimberley Process. The Kimberley Process is a certification system that prevents conflict diamonds from entering the legitimate diamond supply chain. It ensures that only rough diamonds accompanied by a government-issued certificate can be imported and exported, providing an assurance that the diamonds are from sources free from conflict.
In addition, we impose strict contract requirements on our suppliers that go beyond the Kimberley Process. For example, because of the reported human rights abuses in Zimbabwe’s Marange diamond district, Do Amore will not purchase or offer diamonds from that area even though the Kimberley Process does not ban them. We hope everyone in the industry follows suit.
All Do Amore rings arrive in an environmentally friendly box. The boxes are handmade from Jarrah wood by a small family-owned business. The wood is sourced from a sustainable forest in Australia that integrates the perpetual growing and harvesting of trees, with the preservation of biodiversity, soil, water, and air quality for generations to come.
Made in the U.S.A.
Every Do Amore ring are proudly made in the United States. This ensures high product-quality. Furthermore, the United States has strict labor and manufacturing laws that means safer working conditions, and more environmentally-friendly processes.
