Meet our Recommended Supplier Members
What does it mean to be an Ethical Metalsmiths Recommended Supplier?
Our Recommended Supplier Members share Ethical Metalsmiths' goal of fostering responsible sourcing. Through their mining and cutting operations for diamonds and gemstones, and manufacturing processes for findings and metals, these Recommended Suppliers demonstrate their commitment to responsibility and transparency.
By working with our Self Assessment Tools, these suppliers have taken an additional step in documenting their responsible sourcing practices that support EM’s philosophy of respect for human rights, legal supply chains, and not contributing to environmental degradation.
They are leaders in understanding that responsible sourcing of gemstones, diamonds, and metals in their supply chains brings positive change to the jewelry industry.
Become an Ethical Metalsmiths Recommended Supplier Member!
The first step in our process for interested Suppliers is to contact us so that we can set up an interview with one of our Responsible Sourcing Committee members. If both parties decide that it's a good direction, the Supplier will be invited to take the Self Assessment applicable to their category.
A separate Self Assessment will be taken for each colored gemstone the Supplier carries and/or wants listed on our website. Once the Supplier has taken and passed the Self Assessment, Ethical Metalsmiths will offer them our Supplier Membership status which will list you on our new website as a Recommended Ethical Metalsmiths Supplier.
