Every gemstone that is used in September Rose jewellery is either certified by the Jeweltree Foundation to be conflict free or from RubyFair's own mine.
I can trace every single gemstone I use back to the mine it came from to guarentee that everyone involved in mining, processing, cutting and polishing of the gemstone(s) in your piece of September Rose jewellery has been treated and paid fairly.
I source the spinels I use in September Rose jewellery from Ruby Fair - who own a mine in Southern Tanzania. Ruby Fair is a partnership between British Jewellers and Tanzanian Miners where both the miners welfare, the environment and ecology of the land are given careful and just consideration. They supply natural untreated stones.
