Our diamonds and precious stones are responsibly sourced from vendors with whom we’ve worked with for over ten years. They are either Canadian, reclaimed, or follow the Kimberley process (the fight against conflict diamonds). We also seek ethical gemstones of other varieties, focusing 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. In fact, our studio was just 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.
