(CINCINNATI) – Ethical Metalsmiths (EM) Responsible Sourcing Committee (RSC) announced that the Gemstone Supplier Conversations Guide, which was released to members in time for the Tucson shows, is now available to everyone for download in PDF format on the EM website under the ‘Resources’ tab.
The committee describes Gemstone Supplier Conversations as “a guide intended to provide starting points to assess the ethical positioning of the various suppliers and players you interact with in the mining, metal and gemstone industries.”
EM’s Responsible Sourcing Committee, co-chaired by Susan Crow and Jared Amadeo Holstein, developed the Gemstone Supplier Conversations guide over many months along with RSC committee members.
The Gemstone Supplier Conversations guide is available for download here.
