There is a social disconnect in giving

mined gemstones linked to  

 

 *  wars and human rights abuses   *  poor living conditions 

          *  child labor    *  environmental degradation

 

                                  as tokens of love

EthicMark GEMS Mission

EthicMark GEMS challenges global

mining of gems –

 

Unnecessary now that human science creates gems indistinguishable from those mined. 

 

EthicMark GEMS certifies only gems created by Earth-friendly materials science, are conflict and cruelty free,

more humane and sustainable.

Pledge, whether for yourself or gift-giving, never to purchase mined gems.  Choose jewelry crafted from lab-created gems or sustainably sourced organic materials.  Keep mined pieces with sentimental value and gift away, to loved ones or good causes, jewelry comprised of mined stones.
