Materials

Faktura works with suppliers to ensure transparency in sourcing all materials for both our jewelry and packaging. We are committed to mitigating the environmental impact of an environmentally-intensive industry and to improving the quality of life for those touched in the process of designing and making fine jewelry. 

Conflict- and devastation-free diamonds

Faktura sources all its diamonds exclusively from Canadian mines to ensure the provenance of even the smallest stone. The melee diamonds we use are the highest possible grade available: G-H VS. Canadian mines participate in the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS), an international cooperative monitoring system created to eliminate the flow of conflict diamonds.  

Reclaimed 18k gold and platinum

Faktura uses reclaimed gold and platinum exclusively. Reclaimed metals, which are of identical quality as newly-mined metals, avoid the mining process altogether and reduce global demand for environmentally-intensive mining for precious metals. For both our diamonds and precious metals, we work with environmentally responsible mines that work in accordance with the strictest labor and safety guidelines.
