Earlier this year, the Fairmined 100 challenge presented 127 collections created by licensed brands promoting their support for Fairmined certified small-scale mining organizations. With the challenge, the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) promotes the positive impact generated by choosing Fairmined, such as the protection of human rights and the elimination of the use of mercury in gold mining; but also aims to give visibility to the work of brands that are part of the Fairmined family. In these efforts, ARM has come together with the Danish leading jewelry marketplace The Jewellery Room, who are now hosting an exclusive section for a selection of participating brands from the Fairmined 100 challenge:
