luxe.zen’s commitment to ethical jewelry
This raw sapphire gemstone ring embodies our commitment to ethical jewelry. Too often, the jewelry we love fuels conflict, unsafe working conditions, and environmental destruction in the places that gemstones, crystals and metals are mined. At luxe.zen, we create jewelry with ethically sourced raw gemstones that are mined under safe conditions by miners who earn a fair wage. We handcraft jewelry with gemstones and precious metals that were extracted with minimal environmental impact, and we up-cycle and recycle as much as we can. We invite you to learn more about our ethos and how to be an informed ethical jewelry consumer here.
