Founded to improve the lives of small-scale gold miners, we have been building relationships with artisanal mining communities, visiting them regularly and bringing their product to market ever since.
Working in partnership with miners in Columbia, we established the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) to represent small scale artisanal miners globally, and promote socially and environmentally responsible practices.
Working with mining cooperatives in South America and the Fairtrade Foundation, Cred made the first independently guaranteed fully traceable jewellery in the world to bear the new Fairtrade Gold mark.
After working on the ground in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania with Fairtrade for 3 years, we officially launched African Fairtrade Gold and brought in the first shipment from Uganda in 2017.
As early adopters of Lab Grown Diamonds, we launched the UK’s first ethical Lab Grown ring collection. Putting the focus on consumer choice and disrupting traditional jewellery industry supply chains and practices.
