A lot of you have been asking about this new stunner on my neck. Thanks, it's from @alkimee! ✨
Most people focus on diamonds as the cornerstone violation of human rights in the jewelry industry, but gold mining can be an equally exploitative process: from black market dealers to the improper use of chemicals without safety precautions.
That’s why knowing the source of your gold, or using recycled gold, is so important!
@Alkimee creates ethical jewelry using recycled and fairmined metals, meaning responsibly mined by artisanal and small-scale miners. They work with miners that are paid fair market rates AND paid a premium that is invested into developing their worker cooperatives and communities.
If you use my code ADIMAY, Alkimee will donate a minimum of 25% of profits made on any sales to the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM).
ARM works to transform the artisanal mining sector into a socially and environmentally responsible activity, while improving the quality of life of artisanal miners, their families & communities through initiatives such as their Fairmined certification program.
The 14K Fairmined gold used to produce my अदिति necklace (Aditi in Hindi) came from the Iquira and La Coqueta mines in Columbia. What a stunner, no? ✨
