Sustainability

Conflict Free Diamonds

 

Diamonds are a girl's best friend because they're timeless. But these days, it's also important to make sure they're sustainable.

At Narcissus, we know that traceability and transparency are key to avoiding unintended negative impacts at any stage of the creation process. That's why we're committed to the highest level of sustainability.

We select diamonds that are compliant with the Kimberley Process, which ensures that the diamonds we use do not fuel armed conflict in high-risk countries. While these guidelines are core to our brand, they cannot always affirm full traceability from mine to market.

Transparency is a core value of our business, and we want you to know that when you purchase something from us, you can trust that it was made professionally and ethically. We know that this trust is what keeps you coming back, and we're committed to delivering on it time after time.


 

Why We Use Recycled Gold

 

If you're anything like us, you probably don't like to think about it, but dirty gold mining has a history of civil war, labor abuses, and environmental devastation.

Metal mining, and gold mining in particular, is one of the most environmentally destructive types of mining, and gold miners often earn low wages in dangerous working conditions.

We believe that the way things are isn't ok. We believe that everyone who works for Narcissus should be able to practice their craft in a safe environment with fair compensation. We believe that the environment should be respected so that we all can enjoy it. And we believe that businesses should be sustainable so they can continue to do good in the world.

That's why we use recycled metals whenever possible!

Our objective is to help diminish the negative impacts of dirty gold by reducing the demand for newly mined metals and contributing to programs dedicated to improving mining practices. By using recycled metals, we create less demand for newly mined metal and contribute less to environmental destruction and social oppression.
