We only deal with reputable diamond and gemstone suppliers. Because of that, all of our traceable diamonds are accompanied by documentation (origin certificates and laboratory certificates where applicable).
Likewise, the metal we buy is 100% recycled by environmentally responsible refiners – or is fair-mined in origin.
We have a strong emphasis on environmental issues and choosing responsibly recycled precious metals helps to reduce the impact of mining on the environment. However, recycled does not mean second best. Recycled metal is as pure and usable as any newly mined metal that has been processed for jewellery use.
Furthermore, all of our gold (white, yellow and rose), palladium and platinum is hallmarked, guaranteeing its purity.
Conflict-free and Fair Trade Diamonds and Gemstones
The diamonds and gemstones we offer you are from non-conflict areas and all of them (excluding recycled diamonds and gemstones) are of a traceable origin.
You’ll see that all traceable diamonds come with documents supporting their origin.
We avoid sweatshop labour and will only offer you diamonds and gemstones that have been processed by a workforce free from exploitation.
Our handmade pieces are hallmarked with the EJA stamp. This confirms that your piece has been handmade in Australia using recycled metal and ethical diamonds or gemstones.
Importantly, we do not sell cast jewellery for reasons explained here. The only not completely handmade rings we offer are die-struck wedding rings sourced from Hoover & Strong (a US-based eco-refiner).
