Social & Environmental Responsibility

elleCee Jewelry maintains an ongoing environmental consciousness and fair trade awareness in our manufacturing processes and in the lives of all of our associates. We are committed to conducting all operations in the most socially responsible manner possible—from our recycled metals to our ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones.

We believe it is our duty to improve the lives of our associates and ensure they are compensated fairly for their labor. By supporting ethical suppliers and every facet of fair trade jewelry, we believe we can make a difference in our communities.

And just as we are committed to bettering the global jewelry industry, we are committed to making our own local community a better place.

Ethical Sourcing

Recognizing the challenges associated with providing precious materials in a responsible manner, we work closely with all of our suppliers to ensure our jewelry is produced in the most ethical way possible.

Recycled Metals

At elleCee, we are committed to ethical sourcing and environmental sustainability in all aspects of our operations. This includes selecting suppliers who utilise 100% recycled materials in manufacturing processes. 

Gemstone Sourcing

elleCee adheres to strict protocols in regards to the sourcing of both lab-created and mined gemstones. As a natural resource, gemstones can be found almost anywhere, but they are mined, cut, and exchanged too frequently to keep traceable documentation of their exact source.

However, we engage in several practices to ensure the integrity of the gemstones we purchase and believe in creating an open dialogue about gemstone sourcing to be as transparent and trustworthy as possible. 

elleCee transparently discloses all treatments that any of our natural and/or lab-created gemstones have undergone. We also clearly label all natural and lab-created gemstones for easy identification.

 

Ethically Sourced Diamonds

elleCee procures the majority of its diamonds from suppliers that manufacture rough diamonds. Sourcing cut and polished diamonds that originate from Canada, South Africa, Botswana, Russia, Australia, and Namibia.

Our suppliers are selected for their commitment to upholding the highest standards for ethics, integrity, and professionalism in the diamond industry. Together, we are committed to boosting consumer confidence in diamonds.

 

No-Conflict Diamonds

We are committed to selling conflict-free, ethically sourced diamonds. We believe it is completely unacceptable to tolerate conflict diamonds and human suffering in any way.

All rough and polished mined diamonds sold by elleCee comply with the Kimberly Process, which ensures rough diamonds are

  • Exported and imported with a government-validated certificate stating the diamonds are conflict-free.
  • Transported between signatory countries in a sealed, tamper-proof container.
  • Sold with a statement from the seller on all invoices guaranteeing the diamonds sold are conflict-free.
