FAIRMINED FOR CONSUMERS

Have you ever wondered what is behind the splendor
of the gold jewelry that you use to celebrate,
fall in love and dazzle?

Gold represents many things: love, success, commitment, wealth. Behind those symbols, there is a story of origin that can make a difference.
Get to know where your gold comes from.

Fairmined is an assurance label that provides the world with gold to be proud of

It is certified gold from responsible small-scale mining organizations working with the Fairmined standard, which guarantees better mining practices, social development and environmental protection.

Together we can tell a different story, a story of fair origin.

Why Fairmined?

Approximately 20 million people

worldwide are engaged in artisanal and small-scale gold mining.

Over 150 million people,

miners and their families, depend on this activity to make a living. In many cases, mining is the only local economic alternative.

20% of the gold

is produced by the artisanal and small-scale mining sector worldwide.

Unfortunately, irresponsible practices in the past have created a negative reputation for the artisanal
and small-scale mining sector. 

People tend to associate gold mining with: informality, unsafe working conditions, illegality, child labor, gender inequality, unfair labor practices, organized crime and damage to the environment.

Fairmined aims at eliminating these practices and the negative perceptions they create, 
turning mining into an active force for good. 

CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF ETHICAL MINING COMMUNITIES

Small-scale mining organizations certified with the Fairmined standard work hard to achieve compliance with the demanding legal, organizational, technical, labour, social and environmental requirements.

 In return for their efforts and to promote their continuous improvement and development, they receive a fair price as well as a premium for their gold

This premium is invested in:
