Our company is dedicated in buying rough gemstones from the mine or from renowned gemstone auctions where we are able to trace back our stones to the source. Being able to be close to the source gives us a great chance in finding rare and valuable stones which enable us to serve the best gemstones to our clients. We are a proud member of The Responsible Jewelery Council, which certifies Garaude to be “ethically responsible in social and environmental practices, which respect human rights, throughout the diamond, colored gemstones (rubies, sapphires and emeralds), gold, silver and/or platinum group metals, jewellery and watch supply chain, from mine to retail.”
We are a part of The Dragonfly Initiative (TDI) and The International Colored Association (ICA).
The Dragonfly Initiative is a sustainability advisory firm established to enable businesses in the natural resources, precious metals and gemstones supply chains – from production to retail, site to shelf, mine to market – to work collaboratively in realising an environmentally, socially and financially responsible system of connected enterprises.
