By asking for gold that is certified to Fairtrade Standards, you are contributing to improving the lives of miners, their families and communities.
As members of the Fairtrade Goldsmiths Registration Scheme, we can offer all of our jewellery in Fairtrade Gold. We hope that by being part of this scheme we are helping to address the injustices of conventional gold trading, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest and weakest producers.
Buying Fairtrade certified gold means that you can be sure that the small-scale and artisanal gold miners have been paid a fair price, giving them financial security. Their business practices have to meet strict Fairtrade Standards which include requirements about working conditions, health and safety, handling chemicals, women’s rights, child labour and protection of the environment. They also receive a premium on the price of their gold to invest in building the future of their families and their communities, through education, medical care or environmental projects.
