The concept of companies being environmentally and socially responsible is not new, but it’s becoming even more important to consumers. Michael West, director of sales and brand development for Rosy Blue, New York outlines the benefits and the challenges of producing “responsible” jewelry. He begins with the basic steps of ethical production, explains commonly-heard acronyms, discusses supply chain traceability and transparency, as well as environmental and social concerns. He talks about why these things are important to a consumer and what the jewelry industry is doing to ensure that sustainable and ethical concerns are met. Rosy Blue is one of the world’s largest diamond manufacturers due to their integrity and the exceptional quality of their product. They add value throughout the supply chain, enrich communities in which they work, and act as responsible stewards of society and environment.
