Samantha chooses the projects she sources her silver from with great care to ensure that they are traceable and sustainable. She uses certified eco metals as much as possible as these prohibit the use of toxic chemicals (such as cyanide and mercury) during the mining process. Thereby ensuring that the mine has minimal impact on the local environment and eco systems.
The silver used to make each piece of SEPTEMBER ROSE jewellery is documented from source to jewellery box to ensure that it is completely traceable and it comes from a project which has responsible environmetal and safety practices.
Every grain of silver is certified either as Fairmined silver or Jeweltree silver. This means that in addition to the environmental standards the miners are paid a fair wage.
Samantha also sources from a select few small projects that are working towards certification to aid them in the quest to become a Fairmined mine.
