Our company is the first Fairmined certified jeweler in Finland, and the first Fairmined certified indigenous made jeweler in the world. Two firsts that we are extremely proud of.
The Fairmined certification was created by Alliance for Responsible Mining. The Fairmined certification was created by a gold producing country for gold producing countries, where problems related to the illegal, informal and sometimes criminal extraction of gold causes considerable environmental damage and atrocious human rights violations. Thus, Fairmined certifies gold of responsible origin, guarantees that it is traceable from the mine, extracted with the best mining practices aimed at preserving the environment, and support the development of artisanal and small-scale mining communities. Fairmined is the highest level of responsible mining, and obtaining its certification is a process that can take years to achieve.
For our products we have chosen the Fairmined ecological gold option, which guarantees that the gold was extracted free from mercury and cyanide, following the strictest guidelines for minimal impact on the environment. Fairmined ecological gold pays a USD6 per kilogram of gold extracted. Our Fairmined ecological gold comes from the artisanal mine Oro Puno in Peru.
By choosing Fairmined gold, you are having a direct impact on artisanal mining communities and are directly contributing to the betterment of the industry as a whole. Fairmined is a gold that you can truly wear with pride. For more information on Fairmined go to www.fairmined.org
