Our diamonds and precious stones are responsibly sourced from vendors with whom we’ve worked with for over ten years. They use mostly Canadian or reclaimed stones, and always follow the Kimberly Process. We also focus our gemstone sourcing on domestic sources whenever possible, to ensure US labor and environmental regulations are met.
Our Green Certified studio practices include a zero-waste policy, using only post consumer packaging materials, carbon offsetting our shipments, and reusing and recycling everything we possibly can. We are even recognized as a Water Smart business by the East Bay Municipal Utility District. We design using traditional metalsmithing techniques that avoid the excessive waste associated with other forms of production, and we are constantly finding new ways to improve.
Our Green Certification
Fresh from our re-certification as a Green Business of Alameda County, we're excited to share our processes. We invite all to join us in reducing our collective environmental impact. Melissa always says, “it’s in cumulative change that we will make a difference, not alone”.
