18K Yellow Gold Chocó Fair Trade Pendant

(5)

This two-sided pendant is made from one of the first truly fair trade sources of gold from Oro Verde, responsibly harvested from cooperatives in the Chocó region in Colombia, South America. One side is adorned with a pre-Colombian petroglyph pattern, inspired by the region where the gold is harvested, while the other side glimmers with a rough-hewn hand-hammered finish. This exclusive pendant is produced in limited quantities due to limited availability of fair trade gold. In addition to paying a fair wage, the fair trade gold cooperatives ensure the use of sustainable environmental practices, restore ecosystems damaged by other mining companies, and promote the well-being of the local community.

This necklace was given to me as a gift almost 6 months ago and I haven't gone a day without it since. I study indigenous peoples and live my life as sustainable as possible so the necklace has extreme significance to me. Everywhere I go, someone comments on it and is even more impressed when they hear the story behind it. Thank you, Brilliant Earth, for providing such wonderful jewelry options for those of us conscious of how our choices affect others.

This was a birthday gift for my girlfriend, and she loved it. She's a big supporter of fair-trade goods and is planning to do a Ph.D. on political science with respect to Latin America. The necklace therefore holds a lot of meaning for her, and she thinks I'm awesome as a result. I'd tell you to buy one... but then hers wouldn't be original! Highly recommended!
