We Don’t Do Diamonds
We Make Jewelry That's Beautiful and Conscientious
While diamonds have always been known as a luxurious and special gem, they are not always an ethical option. Diamond mining often includes poor working conditions, harsh labor, and violence, which is why we choose to not use diamonds on our jewelry. Stephanie, the lead jeweler and metalsmith at Metalicious, wanted to create jewelry that was not only beautiful, but also ethical and conscientious. Along with the recycled metal that we use for our jewelry, we also use a variety of gemstones that are ethically sourced.
At Metalicious, we work hard to provide a variety of beautiful jewelry while sticking to our environmental, sustainability, and ethical standards. Learn more about the gemstones we offer as alternatives to diamonds and shop our collections of jewelry today!
Our Diamond Alternative
Instead of diamonds, we use moissanite gemstones from Charles & Colvard. Moissanite gemstones offer that same brilliant and stunning look that diamonds offer but is a more ethical option. Charles & Colvard use innovative technology and sustainable practices to deliver a brilliant product at an extraordinary value balanced with environmental and social responsibility.
Benefits of Moissanite:
We care about using sustainable and ethical material to create our beautiful and unique jewelry. Our team believes that you can enjoy luxury and high-end jewelry without sacrificing these important values. We make sure to find ethically sourced gemstones and recycled metals to create our works of art. If you are looking for an ethical and sustainable jewelry company to create your jewelry, Metalicious is a great choice!
Ethically Sourced Gemstones
At Metalicious, we also work with the American Gem Trade Association for all of our gemstones. Because of the strict and comprehensive Code of Ethics and Fair Business Practices, we only work with gem cutters from the AGTA. Members of the AGTA invest in the communities that produce gemstones, support those whose lives have been impacted by the gem trade, and work to improve labor conditions.
We make sure to always work with suppliers who use ethical practices, so that we can create beautiful jewelry that doesn’t go against our standards. We offer a variety of beautiful gemstones to choose from, including emeralds, rubies, blue topaz, moonstone, and more. You can shop our collections of jewelry by the gemstone you are looking for!
