At our core,
At KARAAT, we believe that our beautiful jewelry should not come at the expense of the environment or human rights. Therefore, we have established a sustainability strategy that is centered around three main pillars: transparency of production and pricing, materials of high ethics, and environmentally friendly business practices.
Transparency is our top priority
We believe in transparency, and therefore we have made it a priority to provide full transparency in our production process, from the creation of our lab-grown diamonds to the crafting of our jewelry. We also believe in fair pricing, which is why we are committed to providing competitive prices without compromising on quality or sustainability.
By cutting out middlemen and working directly with our goldsmiths and suppliers, we can offer affordable prices that reflect the true value of our products. We believe that by being transparent about our production and pricing, we can build trust with our customers and help them make informed decisions about their purchases and empower them to choose sustainable options.
Ethics at the core of our supply chain
High ethics is at the heart of our sustainability strategy. We believe in using only sustainably created and conflict-free lab-grown diamonds. Unlike mined diamonds, our diamonds are not associated with human rights abuses or environmental destruction.
We believe that by using only ethical and conflict-free diamonds, we can help to promote responsible practices in the industry and support the communities where our diamonds are sourced. We are proud to be part of a movement towards a more sustainable and ethical diamond industry. By choosing lab-grown diamonds, you are making a conscious decision to support ethical and sustainable practices in the diamond jewelry industry.
Pure lab-grown diamonds
While high ethics is in the core of our business, being environmentally friendly is also a big priority for us. Our lab-grown diamonds are created using sustainable processes that have a minimal impact on the environment. Unlike mined diamonds, which require extensive mining and processing, lab-grown diamonds use significantly less energy and water and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
18K recycled gold
In addition to using lab-grown diamonds, we also use recycled gold in our jewelry. By using recycled gold, we reduce the demand for newly mined gold, which has a significant environmental impact. Mining gold can lead to deforestation, water pollution, and soil degradation, among other environmental issues. By choosing recycled gold, you are supporting sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in the jewelry industry.
We are proud to offer sustainable packaging for our products, which have been certified by three leading organizations: FSC, BSCI, and ISO 14001. These three certificates ensure that the materials used in our packaging come from responsibly managed forests, make sure that our packaging is produced under fair and safe working conditions, and confirms our commitment to managing our environmental impact and continuously improving our environmental performance. Our packaging is designed to minimize our impact on the environment using eco-friendly materials and processes.
Still work to be done
At KARAAT, sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do. Our transparency of production and pricing, ethicalness, and environmentally friendly business practices are the main pillars of our sustainability strategy. We are committed to providing high-quality lab-grown diamond jewelry that is ethical, sustainable, and affordable. Furthermore, we believe in reducing waste through our made-to-order business model. By creating each piece of jewelry when it is ordered, we avoid excess inventory and unnecessary production. This approach also allows us to offer unique, personalized pieces that are crafted just for you.
However, we acknowledge that there is still work to be done. We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our overall sustainability.
Our goal is to create jewelry that not only looks beautiful but also leaves a positive impact on the planet. Join us in creating a better future for our planet and our communities by choosing lab-grown diamonds for your next jewelry purchase. We believe that by prioritizing sustainability, we can help to create a better future for our customers, our employees, and our planet.
