For the Industry
Market research indicates that ethical consumerism is on the rise and shows no signs of slowing. Many companies, particularly within the luxury sector, are finding tremendous success in strategic marketing of ethically sourced products. However, when it comes to diamond and jewelry products no medium exists for socially responsible companies to distinguish themselves from “greenwashers.” It is difficult for consumers and retailers to determine where to purchase or source goods that are truly “conflict-free” or “fair trade.”
The Rapaport Ethical Jewelry Directory provides this much needed opportunity for retail jewelers and suppliers to reach a bourgeoning market of socially conscious consumers. Through an innovative and easy to navigate design, consumers easily locate retailers based on product category, region, or sourcing method. The Directory is also a valuable resource for retailers to connect to suppliers who provide ethical diamonds, gems and precious metals.
