Ethical Origins

Our sapphires are ethically sourced in accordance with fair trade and environmentally responsible principles. We ensure that each sapphire has been handled according to strict labor, trade, and environmental protocols. Many of our sapphire are from Sri Lanka, where sapphire miners operate in small cooperatives that share the costs, labor, and profits from the sale of any gemstones found.
