Ethic Mark GEMS

Founding Year: 2015



The initiative of Ethical Markets Media and the EthicMark® Awards for Advertising works to challenge global mining of gems. They believe that it’s “unnecessary now that human science creates gems indistinguishable from those mined”. As such, it will only certify gems that have been created “by Earth-friendly materials science, are conflict and cruelty free”.
