Lumije is honored to have as its diamond partner a renowned, mining company client and US-based diamond manufacturer. A diamond manufacturer is one who cuts and polishes the rough diamond (the form it takes when it is excavated from the earth) into its finished form, which most of us are familiar with.
There are only a handful of diamond manufacturers who are eligible to receive rough diamonds directly from one of the three major diamond-mining companies. As a direct-mining-client, our supplier must adhere to the highest ethical standards, transparency (which tracks the different phases the rough diamond goes through to become a finished/polished diamond) and corporate governance, in order to maintain this relationship.
This ensures you can have confidence your Lumije diamonds are always all natural (never artificially-enhanced or treated in any way) and were mined and produced in the most ethical and sustainable way.
In addition, to the strict criteria our partner must adhere to for the diamond mining company. They are also very active members of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), The Diamond Manufacturers and Importers of America (DMIA), the Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC). Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and The American Gem Society (AGS).
