What does it mean to be an Ethical Metalsmiths' Recommended Supplier?

Join our community

Our Recommended Supplier Members share Ethical Metalsmiths goal of fostering responsible sourcing in their mining and cutting operations for diamonds and gemstones and additionally manufacturing for findings and metals. By working with our Supplier Self Assessment Tools, these suppliers have taken an additional step in documenting their responsible sourcing practices that support EM’s philosophy of responsibility to respect human rights, source their supply chains legally and not contribute to environmental degradation. They are leaders in understanding that responsible sourcing of gemstones, diamonds, findings and metals in their supply chains brings positive change to the jewelry industry.

Ethical Metalsmiths’ first self-assessment for gemstones was released in 2019. This was the first of 4 Self Assessments and In 2020 we will begin developing for Diamonds, Findings and Metal

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.


Ethical Metalsmiths believe that this process of Self-Assessment is the beginning that promotes education and change, not the end to inclusion
