We strive to offer gemstones sourced in alignment with safe working conditions and environmentally responsible principles. Many obstacles still exist in obtaining information about gemstone mining conditions around the world which makes it challenging to trace some gemstone origins and track the conditions under which they were mined.

By continually working with our colored gemstone suppliers to improve standards and traceability, we strive to promote higher standards for gemstone sourcing to transform dangerous mining conditions and encourage responsible practices. For instance many of our gemstones originate from Malawi, where miners employ techniques that minimize impact to the environment and operate in small cooperatives that share the costs, labor, and profits from the sale of gemstones.
