To diminish our environmental and social impact, Abby Sparks Designs does its best to purchase from suppliers that source ethically refined precious metals and stones. We believe it is our ethical duty to not use conflict diamonds or gemstones in our creations, and we are strongly committed to that goal. We operate in compliance with resolutions set forth by the United Nations as well as the Kimberley Process certification. That said, we fully realize the limitations of the Kimberly Process and upon client request, we have the ability to take more extreme care in sourcing stones. We respect and value our clients’ values, so we do our best to go above and beyond to meet our clients’ sustainability needs for every custom piece we create.
