What is Fairmined gold?

Fairmined gold is a guarantee of ethical sourcing, and the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting responsible and sustainable artisanal and small-scale mining.

The benefits of Fairmined gold

The ARM created the Fairmined label in 2004. It distinguishes gold sourced from autonomous, responsible, artisanal, and small-scale mines from uncertified, conventional gold. By purchasing Fairmined gold jewelry from Aurore Havenne, you can make a high-quality and environmentally and socially conscious purchase. The Fairmined label is not just a label, but an active contribution to improving the living conditions of miners and their families.

Fairmined regulations provide a secure framework for mining operations and promote fair remuneration, which helps to combat poverty and corruption in mining communities. Incentives are given to develop local infrastructure, which promotes social stability and economic growth. Moreover, environmental protection is a primary concern in Fairmined certified mines.

These mines use fewer chemicals during extraction and implement strict controls to maintain low chemical levels . Waste management and treatment are also emphasized to preserve biodiversity, and damaged ecosystems are rehabilitated to minimize their impact on the surrounding flora and fauna.

The Fairmined label and our brand

Aurore Havenne creates timeless, minimalist jewelry that carries significant meaning for the wearer.

In 2020, we obtained our Fairmined license. It allowed us to steer our brand towards more responsible, sustainable, and ethical practices with the use of Fairmined gold. 

At Aurore Havenne, we are committed to promoting Fairmined gold, as well as building a better future through responsible sourcing and sustainable practices. Join us in our mission to make a positive impact on the world, one piece of jewelry at a time.
