At Exodus Goldsmiths, our vow is to supply precious metals, colored gemstones, and diamonds in a way that not only respects and sustains our planet, but the workers that mine them and their communities.
We only purchase recycled precious metals, refined from pre-loved jewelry pieces. No mining of new metals means less damage to our planet, and no risk of exploiting the miners and people of third-world countries.
There are two amazing things about lab-created diamonds: First is that they are 100% chemically, optically, physically identical to mined diamonds. Second, is that there is a 100% guarantee of ethical sourcing, as they are made in a lab! And no mining means much less damage to our beautiful planet.
We only purchase colored gemstones when our suppliers can guarantee their origin. Many of our suppliers even give back to artisanal mining communities! We have zero tolerance for exploitation of the miners that unearth these beautiful stones for us.
Thanks to the Kimberly Process, 99.8% of the world's natural diamond trade is now conflict free in 2022. In April 2003, congress passed a law adopting the Kimberley Process that requires all US diamond retailers to buy diamonds from manufacturers who have documentation warranting that the merchandise was obtained through legitimate channels. We strictly adhere to this policy at Exodus Goldsmiths.
