“Ethical Gem Fair” – Supporting Ethics in the Gemstone Supply Chain
TUCSON – The third annual “Ethical Gem Fair” will be held from January 28-31, 2023 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, Tucson, two short blocks from the Tucson Convention Center (TCC).
Exhibiting gem suppliers are those with a commitment to ethics in the gemstone supply chain, including supporting artisanal miners and communities, verifiable origins and traceability, commitment to environmental and health and safety regulations, and SCS-certified recycled diamonds and gemstones.
Jewelry designers attending Tucson will be able to view and purchase gemstones and diamonds with the assurance of responsible sourcing and practices. Suppliers can provide specific details about the source of each gemstone to every customer.
