Sustainable Jewelry

Sustainable jewelry can be defined as jewelry that has been produced using socially and environmentally responsible practices. This practice starts at the precious metal and mineral mines, and it continues to the design and production process.

From mining to final production, Solomon Brothers has made a commitment to offering timeless quality jewelry that you can feel good about wearing.


Mining ore to produce enough gold for a single ring creates up to twenty tons of environmental waste. To reduce our carbon footprint, Solomon Brothers uses recycled precious metals for custom jewelry and repairs, and we partner with manufacturers and designers that also follow this practice.


Solomon Brothers guarantees that all of our diamonds are conflict free. We follow the Kimberley Process to reduce the flow of conflict diamonds (rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against governments). We adhere to strict requirements that ensure our diamonds are not funding violence.

Colored Gems

None of our precious gemstones have been treated to "enhance" their appearance. Gem enhancements include: bleaching, coating, dyeing, filling, impregnation, waxing, irradiation, flux healing, fracture filling, lattice diffusion and laser treatments. These treatments not only affect the natural beauty of the gemstone, they also affect the stone cutters and polishers. According to the Department of Toxic Substances Control, exposing stone cutters to harmful chemicals can lead to life threatening illnesses such as lung cancer.

Production Process

We have partnered with designers such as Tacori and Scott Kay that use environmentally responsible practices during their production process. Strenuous standards of air and water quality are followed to ensure that emissions do not contribute to industrial waste, therefore reducing our negative impact on the planet.
