Each supplier in the collective works in various ways to uphold the shared values of responsible sourcing and transparency. Some of these methods include supporting artisanal miners and their communities, supplying SCS-certified recycled diamonds, providing colored gemstones with verifiable, fully traceable origins, and committing to fair pay and fair treatment for everyone involved in the supply chain. The collective also adheres to clear and responsible environmental policies and promotes health and safety at mines through education and action. Some of the countries that the group supports and sources from include Australia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the United States, just to name a few.
