Watch my full video interview with Stuart Pool about ethical gemstone and the key factors for jewellers on YouTube. We have an interesting conversation you don't want to miss!
Stuart is a specialist in responsibly mined and fully traceable coloured gemstones, mainly sourced directly from mines in Sri Lanka and Tanzania. He runs gem trading companies Nineteen48 , Rubyfair and Crown Gems, as well as being one of the co-founders of Fair Luxury, a group focused on positive change in the jewellery industry and a key member of the Moyo Gemstones project.
Stuart works very closely with local mine owners to provide a mine-to-market service, from extracting the rough gem material and the cutting and polishing of gemstones, right up to the sale of gems to the end customer (both wholesale and retail). The emphasis throughout the supply chain is on maximum transparency and fair benefits to everyone involved.
