Gemfields, the ethical and sustainable mining company, has launched a new consumer website to increase awareness of coloured gemstones.

Designed to inform, educate and inspire, the website is easy to use and answers all the key questions that anyone with an interest in buying ethically mined coloured stones may have.

Divided into three sections - Ethical and Sustainable Mining, A Guide to Rare Coloured Gemstones and Gemfields Discovered - it's a wealth of information that not only outlines Gemfields' sustainable and socially responsible mining practices, including its mission to remain transparent in its mining operations, but also offers a comprehensive guide to emeralds, rubies and amethysts, written by industry insiders with an in-depth knowledge of these fascinating precious stones.

The third section, Gemfields Discovered, is a great place to start exploring the website. Featuring a carefully curated gallery of images shot by world-famous photographers, it includes Gemfields' ad campaigns - past and present - portraits of the Kagem mining community, an artistic series of Zambian landscapes and an introduction to the company's recently appointed global ambassador, Mila Kunis, and her involvement with Gemfields, including a video of her recent trip to Gemfields' Zambian mines.

"Consumers have been looking for a trusted source in the coloured gemstone industry," says Ian Harebottle, Gemfields CEO, "and with the launch of our website, we are able to provide them with that access and help them understand the brand in a creative way. The site is more than just a landing page for Gemfields. It's about experiencing coloured gemstones and educating consumers on the impact of their purchase."

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
