How did Lumije Originate?
Lumije was started by Deborah Samuels as a way to combine her lifelong love affair with diamonds and jewelry and her passion for empowering women. Read more about us here
How Does Lumije Give Back to Women-Own Businesses?
Lumije partnered with the non-profit charity Bpeace and donates a percentage of every sale. It’s a wonderful multiplier effect. A woman buys a piece from Lumije to empower herself, and through her purchase, which benefits Bpeace, she is empowering another woman who indirectly is gaining knowledge and skills to be more successful.
Are Lumije’s Diamonds Ethically-Sourced?
Lumije is honored to have as its diamond partner a renowned mining company client and US-based diamond manufacturer. A diamond manufacturer 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 to maintain this relationship.
This ensures you can have confidence that your Lumije diamonds are always all-natural (never artificially-enhanced. Lab-Grown or treated in any way) and were mined and produced most ethically and sustainably.
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), and the Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC). Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and The American Gem Society (AGS)
Do Ethically-Sourced Diamonds Cost More?
We do not think that is the issue. It is more that both Lumije and its diamond partner have certain professional standard and value that does not include selling diamonds that are not ethically-sourced.
How are Lumije’s Gemstones Sourced?
We choose only those suppliers that adhere to certain high standards.

CARING FOR YOUR LUMIJE JEWELRY
How do I Care for My Jewelry?
Fine jewelry is delicate and should be cared for accordingly. To extend the life of your jewelry and keep them in optimal condition, please follow the following care instructions:
Remove jewelry before applying shower products, lotion, perfume, or other chemical and oil compounds.
Leave your jewelry at home before engaging in strenuous activities, including going to the gym! Certain snug fitting earrings can be used safely while exercising.
Certain studs or snug earrings and rings can be worn even while you sleeps, but we recommend that necklaces and bracelets be removed before sleeping.
How Do I Clean My Lumije Jewelry?
- Give your jewelry a monthly home cleaning to ward off the everyday buildup.
- For a deeper clean, visit your jeweler at least once a year, or buy an inexpensive ultrasonic cleaner.
- Soak your jewelry in warm, soapy water for 20 to 40 minutes without using an ultrasonic cleaner. Then gently brush the stone with a soft toothbrush and rinse under warm water.
- Avoid using rough materials like paper towels when it's time to clean or polish. Instead, choose a microfiber cloth or soft cotton fabric for a gentle touch.
- Likewise, avoid using harsh household cleaners like bleach, chlorine, and acetone. They can break down the metal of your jewelry. Simple soap and water work best.
How Does Financing Work?
We offer finance through Shop Pay. On the product page, directly under the product name, you can find the Shop Pay monthly price, and you can select that option at checkout!
