“Designing always begins when I meet the gems. Each stone, with its magical and romantic story, inspires me and takes my breath away.”
Fair Trade gems are stones that are closely tracked from mine to market to ensure they have been handled according to a strict set of protocols.
These include environmental protections, fair labor practices, health and safety standards and a tight chain of custody that eliminates the possibility of treated gems or synthetics being introduced into the supply chain.
