The house JEM Jewellery Ethically Minded has been launched in 2010, with the ambition to rewrite traditional jewelry’s codes, combining absolute aesthetic and sustainable development.
JEM has a strong mission, the one of a sustainable and clearsighted jewelry, creating jewels in a spirit of goodwill, according to our mission and idea of ethical progress.
At the heart of JEM’s commitments, the ethical Gold sourcing embodied by the Fairmined label, the traceability guaranteed along each step of fabrication, as well as the perpetuation and transmission of the French jeweller know-how.
“We aspire to shine a new light on jewelry-making without depriving it of its essential poetry and grace.”
JEM is the first French craft jeweler to be engaged in the « Fairmined » industry. The Fairmined label aims to establish mining facilities, that apply rigorous ecological, social and humane standards.
This mining industry is legal, organized by and for the miners themselves, in a cooperative-style management. It respects the environment, human rights, international labor regulations, and applies Fairtrade standards.
Today, 11 mines in the world have qualified for this label in Peru, Bolivia, Colombia and Mongolia, and about 50 more are undergoing modifications in view of being certified shortly.
” We strive to bring about a sustainable way of making jewelry, both conscious and enlightened. We wish to create jewels in a spirit of goodwill, according to our mission and idea of ethical progress. We aspire to shine a new light on jewelry-making without depriving it of its essential poetry and grace.”
