    Sourcing Metals and Stones

    My jewelry is as sustainable as I can make it at the moment. I use recycled and Certified Fair Trade sterling silver and gold. Moving forward as I purchase new stones they will come from dealers that provide Certified Fair Trade and responsibly sourced stones. What does this mean?

    • 1. ensure country of origin.
    • 2. support local production through sales, and work on development projects and critical needs in the local communities.
    • 3. track our fair trade gemstones through the cutting process to ensure no worker is exploited or subjected to health hazards like Silicosis, which ultimately results in death.
    • 4. ensure full disclosure and clarity of any treatments performed on gems that travel under the “Fair Trade Gems®”.

    The chain that I use is made in the United States by the oldest family run chain manufacturer in the country. It is not recycled but it is local.

    I am a proud member of "The Ethical Metalsmiths" group as well as "WJA" which is the Women in Jewelry Association. 

    Jane Bartel Jewelry supports the "Heal The Bay" foundation with a monthly donation. Heal The Bay supports the health of the Santa Monica Bay in California which is where I grew up going to the beach every summer. I love the ocean very much.
