Thinking about buying the perfect gift for that special someone this Valentine's Day? We have a new campaign that could help you make the right choice.
People spend billions on jewelry every year. But most jewelry brands can’t guarantee their products aren’t tainted by human rights abuses.
Gold and diamonds are often mined under brutal, abusive conditions. Children are injured or even killed working in hazardous mines. Whole communities face ill-health when mines pollute waterways with toxic chemicals. In war, civilians have suffered enormously as abusive armed groups have enriched themselves by exploiting gold and diamonds.
We need your help. Tell 13 big jewelers to ensure their jewelry is responsibly sourced and to come clean about what's #BehindtheBling.
This Valentine's Day, don't you want to know where your jewelry comes from?
