Sustainable Sourcing: Recycled Gold and Ethical Gemstones

Sustainability in the jewelry world has been overlooked for too many years, but not at Jewelmak. We are proud to announce that we use 90% recycled gold in crafting our exquisite pieces. This commitment not only reduces the demand for new mining but also minimizes the environmental impact associated with traditional gold sourcing. We go the extra mile by ensuring that 90% of our gold is traceable, allowing us to know exactly where our gold originates, giving you peace of mind about your jewelry's provenance.

Our dedication to ethical sourcing extends beyond just gold. We meticulously trace the origins of our gemstones as well, ensuring they come from responsible and conflict-free sources. We have not, and do not, work with any suppliers in conflict regions or who have had a history of poor working conditions of any kind. This ensures that every gemstone in our collection has a story worth sharing, one that aligns with our values of social and environmental responsibility.

Cultured Freshwater Pearls: A Commitment to Quality and the Environment

We source our cultured freshwater pearls from some of the best and most responsible suppliers across Asia. These relationships ensure that you receive the highest quality AAA-grade pearls on the market. What's even more remarkable is that you can enjoy these exquisite pearls without worrying about habitat destruction or pollution of the seas. At Jewelmak, beauty and responsibility go hand in hand.

Quality Control: Cream of the Crop

Quality is at the heart of everything we do. Our gemstones and gold findings undergo rigorous quality control processes. Our network of suppliers is carefully examined, and many must pass extensive audit processes to gain our trust. This meticulous approach ensures that our customers receive only the best – expertly cut, clean VS-grade gemstones with an exquisite shine and guaranteed durability. Our assortment of gemstones and 14kt gold reflects our unwavering commitment to excellence.
