To give you more idea of what I mean by 'ethical jewellery' read on....
To stop diamonds being smuggled and transported from conflict areas where they have been produced under sometimes extremely harsh and unthinkable circumstances, Ingle & Rhode diamonds are not only certified by the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) they can also be traced back to the original source.
Ethical Diamonds & Gemstones
All their diamonds are natural, untreated Canadian diamonds which are known to be covered by the Canadian environmental protection law. The are they are mined, cut and polished with due care for the environment and for human rights. Larger diamonds can also be tracked to their original source.
Coloured gemstones, including ruby, sapphire, emerald, tanzanite, peridot, amethyst, aquamarine, citrine, and tourmaline mostly come from the small-scale mining cooperatives where the money is directly retained by the local communities or they come from ethical producers in the US and Australia. Again they are cut and polished in ethical working conditions.
Fair Trade Gold and Platinum
With the harsh conditions many small-scale gold miners go through just to survive Fairtrade & Fairmined gold and platinum ensure the miners and the local communities get a fair price for their gold as well as having better living and working conditions. Ingle & Rhode are licensed to offer this.
