We believe conscience is important when sourcing gemstones, and that is why we are the trusted source for “fair sapphires.” Our approach to the gem trade is to introduce transparency and traceability into each step of the value chain. We believe in establishing the concept of responsibly mined, fair processed gemstones that are sourced in an environmentally, and community friendly way. In short: fair for everyone – from mine to market!Discover More
Mining in Sri Lanka is considered a prime example of environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and sustainable traditional mining. Sri Lankan miners use age-old traditional practices without the use of heavy machinery. Mines are constructed using locally sourced natural materials, and the safety of miners is the prime priority in this system.Learn more
We work exclusively with miners from the region in close cooperation, building long-term relationships based on trust. The direct involvement of the local community is a very important factor that aids social cohesion across the different mining areas.
For us, local mining traditions are very important. In Sri Lanka, there are age-old rituals and practices that are still alive today. Traditionally, no women are allowed to work as miners but we strongly believe in fair and equal representation and female empowerment. We employ women in processing our gemstones and wholeheartedly support female self-determination and independence.
