Our Diamond ORigins

Our mission is to cultivate a more ethical, transparent, and sustainable jewelry industry. We hold true to our values of awareness and transparency by carefully tracking our origins.

OUR SOURCES

Canada

Our stunning Canadian diamonds originate from pure, ethical sources. Canadian mines are held to strict national environmental mining regulations, and are regularly evaluated by independent monitoring agencies. These diamond mines have become a vital aspect of many regional economies, offering safe employment and fair labor practices. Learn more »

BOTSWANA

Botswana’s growing economy is built on a foundation of responsible diamond mining. Diamonds raise the standard of living by enabling local communities to invest in education, health care, and infrastructure. Employees earn fair wages and enjoy safe working conditions, and regular environmental monitoring protects the eco-system of the Kalahari Desert. Learn more »

NAMIBIA

Namibian diamonds provide mining communities with local jobs and safe working conditions, and contribute to long term economic development.

SOUTH AFRICA

South African diamonds originate from socially and environmentally responsible mines that benefit local economic development.

RUSSIA

Russian diamond mines form the basis of many local economies by employing thousands of community members. Not only are these mines free from violence and human rights abuses, they also provide workers with affordable housing, health care, and pensions, and they directly fund public services such as hospitals and cultural centers.

Lab Created

Lab created diamonds exhibit fire and brilliance equivalent to natural diamonds, and are chemically, optically, and physically indistinguishable. Lab created diamonds are an environmentally friendly choice because they require no mining. Learn more »

Fair Trade

Despite abundant natural resources, many hard-working miners live in abject poverty and endure horrific working conditions every day. The fair trade diamond model is an innovative approach to transforming the artisanal diamond mining sector and improving the livelihoods of miners. The future system of fair trade diamonds will help miners organize and earn a fair share of profits. Learn more »

We source these small accent diamonds from verified sources that include mines in Canada, Russia, Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa.
