Ethical Jewelry

ECO FRIENDLY IS OUR PRIORITY. It’s lame to be anything else, right? Our diamonds are purchased from legitimate sources who are not involved in funding conflict, and are in compliance with United Nations resolutions. We only buy from diamond suppliers that guarantee the diamonds are conflict-free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds.

All of the diamonds in our fine jewelry pieces are G-H color or higher, SI-1 clarity or higher. Our focus is on the fine stone cutting that unlocks the beauty of these treasures of the earth. We have made inroads with many stone cutters to insure that our colored gemstones are ‘fair trade’ and to help the indigenous peoples improve their lives. Our goal is to leave the world a better place.  For that reason we are committed to creating jewelry made with recycled platinum, gold, and silver.

The precious metals we use include gold, platinum, palladium, sterling silver, fine silver and are recycled from the Earth’s existing metal supply, which means we do not buy metals from mining companies.

We recycle all of our metal scrap, right down to the vacuum cleaner bags. We’ve installed sink traps that collect heavy metals to keep it out of the water system. Every tiny bit is sent to our refiner, who is committed to the social responsibility of our environment as well.

It is our moral obligation to continually respect basic human rights around the world and to protect the environment by conserving energy and recycling.

Each piece designed by Philip Voetsch is created one at a time in our studio by our experienced designers and talented goldsmiths to insure high quality standards are met.  Only the finest precious materials are selected for use in our jewelry. Each piece we make is stamped with our nationally registered Trademark, next to the quality mark which ensures the karat content of the gold or platinum.
