Want to know more about ethical gemstones?

Join our Open House discussion with two pioneering coloured gemstone companies, explore their different business models and what can make an ethical, responsible, sustainable business.

The event is free to attend but please register in advance to join us.

We are pleased to be joined by

Pia Tonna (Chief Marketing Officer at Fuli Gemstones)

Fuli Gemstones is developing the largest known peridot deposit in the world. Embracing a core ‘mine-to-market’ business model and a progressive business philosophy, it’s committed to becoming a world-class mining group. Fuli Gemstones is resolute in its offering of a consistent supply of superior gemstones with full traceability, adhering to the strictest safety standards for its mining production, and supported by active global marketing and brand awareness initiatives.

Hayley Henning (Chief Commercial Officer of Greenland Ruby

Unearthed at a pristine location in the south-west of Greenland, Greenland Ruby gems are believed to be the oldest on earth. The company officially began mining in May 2017 and has since been preparing to enter the market with this new source of rubies and pink sapphires. Each gem is mined under the strictest Northern European standards and is fastidiously tracked from the mine.

Come along to hear from our guests about how they operate and the ways in which they are at the forefront of traceable and responsibly sourced gemstones.

The session will be hosted by our own Stuart Pool; a specialist in responsibly mined and fully traceable coloured gemstones, mainly sourced directly from mines in Sri Lanka and Tanzania. He runs gem trading companies Nineteen48, Rubyfair and Crown Gems, as well as being one of the co-founders of Fair Luxury and a key member of the Moyo Gemstones Project.
