What Makes An Engagement Ring Ethical?

What Makes An Engagement Ring Ethical?

Ninety percent of the world's gold and platinum producing workforce is made up of artisanal and small-scale miners Photo Credits: CRED During my early days as a jeweller, troubling images of filthy mines with poor working conditionsprompted me to research alternative gold sources.

Basically, Fairtrade gold is just gold! It does not differ in composition or quality to gold from any other source The difference is that Fairtrade Gold has the power to create better opportunities for disadvantaged miners and their communities The miners at Fairtrade certified mines are guaranteed a fair price for their efforts.

While most gold from bullion dealers in Australia is sourced from big mines which haveapproved OHS standards and meet environmental guidelines, the point of using Fairtrade gold is to support change in an area that desperately needs it It has taken us at Zoe Pook Jewellery many years to find the best suppliers of ethical gold, platinum diamonds and gems from around the world. .
