Jewelers Should Come Clean

People spend billions on jewelry every year. But most jewelry brands can’t guarantee their products aren’t tainted by human rights abuses.

Gold and diamonds are often mined under brutal, abusive conditions. Children are injured or even killed working in hazardous mines. Whole communities face ill-health when mines pollute waterways with toxic chemicals. In war, civilians have suffered enormously as abusive armed groups have enriched themselves by exploiting gold and diamonds.
