Conflict-Free Diamonds - Beyond The Kimberley Process
To ensure every diamond we sell is ethically sourced, we go beyond the Kimberley Process (which is one step to prevent conflict diamonds from entering the diamond trade) by partnering with and purchasing diamonds primarily from Diamond Sightholders. All 79 global sightholders, who also cut and polish our diamonds, face strict requirements to ensure they do not buy diamonds from areas that support conflict, do not endanger the welfare of individuals, and follow the international best practice environmental framework. The sightholder status allows them to source rough diamonds from responsible mines in Canada, Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa, which we purchase after they have been cut and polished.
Natural Moissanite is almost exclusively found in meteors, making it is a very rare and scarce. Therefore, moissanite as we know it today is exclusively lab-made. Manufactured by companies like Charles and Colvard in North Carolina, our moissanite is one of the most eco-friendly gemstone options in the world. There’s no mining is involved in creating moissanite, it has a very small carbon footprint, and every stone is traceable.
Ethically Sourced Sapphires
Our sapphires are sourced from the most ethically conscious suppliers and cutters. We know where each sapphire is sourced from, and do not trade in sapphires that have been chemically treated or chemically enhanced. In addition to natural sapphires, we also offer lab-created sapphires. Lab-created sapphires have the exact same composition as natural sapphires, but were created in a laboratory instead of being mined and have one of the smallest carbon footprints possible for a gemstone.
