We source our gold from suppliers that utilize methods of production that re-use materials and conserve energy. Our gold suppliers have created methods that reduce the quantity of waste products generated per ounce recovered by 75%. All of our gold used in our pieces is created from 100% recycled metals. At this time, there are currently no producers of recycled chain or findings.
Also, we work with socially-responsible diamond and gold mining organizations that aid workers and their communities through fair trade diamond and mining practices. Specific projects aim to empower disadvantaged communities by promoting positive ethical practices in mining for precious metals while avoiding environmentally-damaging mining practices. The process makes a positive contribution to both the people of Africa and the communities from which we purchase our materials.
We believe education is key to creating a safer and sweeter earth for our children. For more about the environmental and ethical challenges of gold and diamond mining, please visit:
Our Charitable Endeavors
A percentage of website proceeds from the four stone bracelet will be donated to help support Keep A Child Alive, which provides drugs to African children and families suffering from the AIDS pandemic. By treating them with medication and restoring hope to orphaned children, Keep A Child Alive makes a direct impact on the lives of the many children and communities who need help.
