  • Can diamonds be a (socially responsible) girl’s best friend again? | Jina Moore
    market we would obviously be doing things very differently We re on a whole other mission to maximize the benefit for miners and their communities To accomplish this we go out of our way to provide our customers with stones that we are proud of not only from a sourcing perspective but also in terms of quality We want to give our customers the best of all worlds If our quality is inferior people will stop purchasing from us and we will not succeed in our mission at all Quality is a very important factor in driving success in the jewelry industry and we want to exceed people s expectations Are they also paying a little bit more because you reinvest the profits in the local community No Profits are pretty high in this industry and we don t need to charge extra to be able to reinvest People are paying for the high quality craftsmanship and the quality of the stone We re just using our profits to build schools where traditionally they would just make the middlemen and business men wealthier It s hard to imagine why everyone wouldn t buy their engagement ring from you Ha We couldn t agree more When people hear about us they almost universally respond very positively Even critics once we talk through our process and our vision usually come around But we are still small potatoes in this industry and most people haven t heard of us Although we re happy to report that this is beginning to change What s your capacity at this point Well we re not entirely sure We re actively building our capacity and refining our business process growth pains that any start up faces At some point we hope to grow enough to leave our day jobs and do this full time But we think that s a ways off Currently there are limits on the diamonds coming from the mines we support Since we are concerned with all of our raw material origins our supply of specific diamonds cut clarity size color is more limited than the open market and this does affect our capacity to a degree Do you want to outgrow your status as a self described boutique company or is there a limit to how far you can scale up a business like this At its heart this is activism Our mission is to maximize the benefit to small scale miners So we will try to grow as much as possible while adhering firmly to this mission I m not sure when a boutique stops being a boutique exactly but growth itself is not our goal We realize that our company will likely come to dominate the industry in any significant sense However we also realize that there is an important role to pla never y for smaller more nimble companies that are interested in pushing the industry in a more fair and transparent direction And realistically we think there always
