Background:
Hoover & Strong has partnered with Ethical Metalsmiths to provide Fairmined certified gold to the US jewelry market.

By buying Fairmined gold you can directly contribute to helping artisanal miners achieve their community development goals.

Fairmined is an assurance label that certifies gold from responsible artisanal mining communities that meet world leading standards for best practices, ensuring social development and environmental protection, providing US jewelers with a source of gold they can be proud of.

In exchange for mining responsibly miners receive a fair price and a premium. This premium goes directly to the mining communities for transparent investment in their developmental goals, such as education; food subsidies, medical and dental services; jewelry workshops for local women; and technology for increased efficiencies.

Hoover & Strong is offering a range of products in 14K,18K and 24K yellow Fairmined gold. Additional Fairmined products may be offered based on customer needs. All Fairmined gold products will fall under Hoover & Strong’s HARMONY FAIRMINED GOLD label.
