Our latest addition to our Gem Luxe line features fair trade gems. What is fair trade gems? Gemstone supplier Columbia Gem House: "Fair Trade Gems are closely tracked from mine to market to ensure that every gem has been handled according to strict protocols. The protocols include environmental protection, fair labor practices at the cutting and jewelry factories, and a tight chain of custody that eliminates the possibility of treated gems or synthetics being introduced into the supply chain. The program also includes promotion of cultural diversity, and public education and accountability." So that's what romancing the stone really means: making sure that people and the earth are treated with respect, and we support this notion wholeheartedly here at HL Eco Jewelry!
