There is no governing body that establishes, oversees, and enforces supply chain procedures and standards for coloured gemstones. Because their origin and manufacturing locations are typically distributed across several countries, the transparent and verifiable sourcing of coloured gemstones is more complex than for diamonds or precious metals
Consequently, sourcing ethically mined and refined coloured gemstones requires deep industry knowledge and long-standing relationships throughout the supply chain.
SandGems brings over 40 years experience in the gemstone industry. We work only with reputable suppliers in our trusted network who strive to closely track and maintain a gemstone's chain of custody from mine-to-market.
It is in this manner we aim to ensure traceability, as well as support environmental protection and fair labour practices, to give you peace of mind that people and planet are treated fairly.
