Britain’s leading casting houses now offering entire catalogues in Fairtrade gold, making Fairtrade available to everybody
Five of Britain’s leading casting houses supplying semi-finished gold product to the jewellery trade are proud to include Fairtrade gold and precious metals as part of their offering.
The landmark move means that everyone in the jewellery industry, large or small, can contribute towards bringing about transformational change to disadvantaged artisanal mining communities and reform the way the jewellery industry works for the better.
Jewellers can now buy everything from sheet, wire, casting grain, tube to chain from Cred, Cooksons, Hockley Mint, Vipa Designs and Western Beamor who are all offering some or all of their ranges in Fairtrade gold.
Significantly, all five companies also offer consumer-ready wedding collections which are available in Fairtrade metals upon request.
All five suppliers are already registered with Fairtrade as master licensees to supply small jewelers, making Fairtrade gold simple and trouble-free for jewellers to incorporate into their ranges.
Reena Agarwal, Commercial Account Manager for Fairtrade gold said: “This latest move allows Fairtrade gold to become a systemic part of the jewellery offering, making Fairtrade gold and precious metals available to everybody in the industry, whether large or small.
“It’s fantastic news that some of the most significant casting houses in the country are going to such great lengths to ensure availability of Fairtrade gold. Fairtrade want to enfranchise everybody in the benefits that Fairtrade can offer smallscale miners and this is a very important step towards doing just that.”
