Fair Trade Gold and Platinum
At Ingle & Rhode, we are delighted to be amongst the first jewellers in the world licensed to offer jewellery made with certified Fairtrade & Fairmined gold and platinum.
In March 2010, the Fairtrade Foundation and the Alliance for Responsible Mining announced the launch of the Fairtrade & Fairmined gold standards. A number of artisinal and small scale mining groups in South America have been audited to ensure that they meet these criteria. Certified Fairtrade & Fairmined gold was officially launched on 14th February 2011, and following this, we received our first shipment.
Millions of people worldwide rely on small-scale gold mining to survive. Most of them work in harsh conditions with no health and safety regulations, and many of them do not receive a fair price for the gold that they produce. Gold certified to Fairtrade and Fairmined standards provides small-scale miners and their communities in developing countries the opportunity for better living and working conditions.
In addition to Fairtrade & Fairmined gold and platinum, we also offer the option of having our jewellery made using 100% recycled gold and platinum.
