Supply Chain Transparency

Demand Supply Chain Transparency

At this time, few materials used by jewelers, including precious metals, diamonds and gemstones can be traced to their source. The industries producing these materials are not motivated to disclose specific origins because ….. they don’t have to! We think they should be accountable throughout a transparent supply chain. Jewelers (and consumers) should be able to choose materials that meet or exceeds their standards.

Taking responsibility means asking questions, challenging suppliers, demanding transparency and purchasing materials from suppliers that disclose sourcing information. Seek out the most socially and environmentally responsible sources for materials, and be honest and transparent with customers. Jeweler demand (and consumer demand) are powerful tools for change.
