Fairmined gold offers a conflict-free, transparent, and traceable supply chain. In 2018, Michelle Pajak-Reynolds became a Fairmined licensed brand to use her art as a way improve the lives and working conditions of artisanal small-scale miners around the world.
The stunning sapphires featured in the Pleiades Collection are directly sourced and fully traceable to the women miners in Tanzania and imported to the US by Moyo Gems. The Moyo Gems team “works to empower women miners to work safely, mine better, improve financial security, and create stable, equitable markets for fair trade.”
