Our Fairtrade Gold

Our company is a leading pioneer in ethically sourced jewelry.  We are the first Fairtrade Gold jewelers in the USA.  Most of the two tone gold over silver pendants, earrings and bracelets on this website are made with Fairtrade Gold and recycled silver.  

Additionally, we are migrating more of our supply chain to Fairtrade Gold in 2017, including wedding rings.  If you want to know whether the gold in a piece of jewelry that you are purchasing is made with Fairtrade Gold or recycled gold, feel free to contact us.

Here, in a video we produced from our footage in Africa, Tina Mwasha, Tanzania's first woman mining engineer, answers
the question, "Why should Americans care about buying jewelry made with fairtrade gold?"

Fairtrade offers the millions of people working in artisan mining in developing countries the best chance to work their way out of poverty and exploitation.
Why Fairtrade Gold And How It Works

Small scale miners in east Africa are beginning to produce fairtrade gold though the capacity building support from fairtrade International.

By having your beautifully crafted piece of jewelry created with Fairtrade Gold you're making a real difference to the community that sourced it.  More

Fairtrade Gold vs Recycled Gold
The purchase of jewelry made with recycled precious metals does not diminish the atrocities and tragedies associated with large or small-scale metal mining. Fairtrade certified gold makes a real difference.  More
