Lakein’s Supports Fair Trade Gemstones
Fair trade gemstones are stones that are sourced ethically. They are handled according to strict protocols and great prudence. Fair trade gemstones are tracked back to the cutting center, and traced from mine to market to ensure that each step of the process is ethical and documented. This is done to ensure that the workers who produce these gemstones have reasonable work hours and humane work conditions. In an effort to reduce the impact on the environment, fair trade gemstones are mined with minimal damage to surrounding vegetation.
