RING jewellers are proud to be accredited stockists of Fairtrade gold. Jewellery with the Fairtrade gold stamp is extra special – buying Fairtrade gold makes a real difference to the lives of miners, their families and communities.
It means you have the reassurance that the small-scale and artisanal miners were paid a fair price, giving them financial security. They also receive an extra amount of money to invest in building the future of their families and their communities, through education, medical care or environmental projects.
Fairtrade standards also help miners to formalise their business practices, meaning that they are able to tighten up chemical handling standards, working conditions, child labour standards, environmental responsibility, and women’s rights.
