Ethically sourced genuine gemstones 💎
Bobbi’s practices full disclosure when working with gemstones and share as much as we can regarding treatments and origin in the description of our gemstones. Erynn has made great connections with three different ethical gemstone suppliers their messages regarding ethical sourcing are below in no particular order.
Bobbi’s suppliers and their continued efforts to offer ethical materials.
Stuller - Exclusively sourcing recycled Metals (gold and silver) from Stuller. They are also one of our three gemstone suppliers.
Message from stuller
“Stuller maintains an ongoing environmental consciousness and fair trade awareness in our manufacturing process and in the lives of all our associates. We are committed to conducting all operations in the most socially responsible manner possible - from our recycled metals to our ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones.
we believe it is our duty to improve the lives of our associates and to ensure they are compensated fairly for their labor. By supporting ethical suppliers and every facet of fair trade jewelry, we believe we can make a difference in our communities.”
European Design - one of our three gemstone suppliers
Message from Daniel at European Design.
“Our gemstones are from Thailand and we have had a close relationship with many of the suppliers since the early 90s.
These companies are family owned and own the mine they extract from to have full control from start to finish (from mining, to cutting and final polishing).
Our preference is to work with Thai suppliers as their work ethic and culture is very respectful. I haven’t personally been but Mike will go twice a year and they will invite him to dinner with their family and employees present.
It really is a pleasure to work with them and it feels good to know the people behind the process instead of dealing with large corporations that own various mines without having the type of control that a family owned mine would have.”
Thai gems - one of three of our gemstone suppliers
Message from Anu from Thai gems
-We are in business with reputable dealers and manufacturers who are sourcing in a sustainable and ethical way. As each member of the supply chain depends on the other for their cash flow. Profits are shared throughout the supply chain - from the person who finds the rough (the rarer it is the more lucrative the reward), the land owner, the license owner, the person who owns the water pump, to the cutter and to the ultimate buyer. Prospering each member and their families of this vast industry.
-Sapphires and rubies originate from Thailand, Sri Lanka, Australia, Madagascar, Vietnam, Myanmar - these regions are/have become conflict-free. Most our gemstones are from these regions.
-At Thai Gems Export Ltd, we value all of our stakeholders highly, from employees to suppliers and look to build an enduring and trust-worthy business with customers. With all the treatments going on in the trade, we believe full disclosure is a must. Dealing in an ethical is a way to create good karma and a fruitful business.
Thanks so much for your interest in Bobbi’s ethical practices if you have any questions or concerns please reach out through contacts.
