There are two key issues within the diamond industry: ethical sourcing, which relates to blood diamonds, and ethical polishing, which revolves around the working conditions, pay and health and safety of all those involved within the diamond and gemstone industry. These issues are global challenges that are continually being worked on to resolve. This is why, at Sacet, we decided to create beautiful jewellery in the most ethical way possible by using lab-grown diamonds.SHOP ETHICAL ENGAGEMENT RINGS
Working with the most advanced technologies and the most skilled scientists, we’re able to grow our own dazzling diamonds, which are chemically and visually identical to natural diamonds - the only difference being that they are ethical, fairly priced and conflict-free. You’ll find that all of our metals are 100% recycled too, sourced from both industries and used jewellery, in order to avoid using large gold mines where working conditions and environmental policies aren’t up to our standards.
At Sacet, we are passionate about creating purposeful jewellery with a beautiful impact and aim to be the first 100% carbon-neutral jewellery-making workshop. Our artisan workshop already uses solar panels to power a large portion and has been designed to reduce our overall energy requirement. Plus, all the manufacturing company profits are used to provide our skilled craftspeople with enriching development, healthcare and children’s education to help them live a balanced and fulfilling life.

An important factor for us when it came to creating beautiful pieces of diamond jewellery, was not having yet another factory for mass production. Instead, we wanted to bring back the artisan culture by building a workshop to inspire and preserve the local art and crafting community. Our trained craftspeople have years of knowledge and skills that have been passed down through generations to create our intricate pieces. Built using Fly Ash Bricks (an alternative product to clay or concrete made from particles produced by burning powdered coal), our workshops save energy and minimise mercury pollution too. With collaborative working areas and green spaces, the workshop was designed to allow as much natural light as possible while also largely powered by solar energy - we’re well on our way to becoming 100% carbon neutral.
When people talk about conflict diamonds, they are often referring to ‘blood diamonds’, which are mined and sold for the purpose of funding a conflict, such as a war or other forms of violence. This will always be a risk when buying natural diamonds and is a very big reason why people are now choosing more ethical alternatives, like lab-grown diamonds. When you buy a diamond ring or diamond jewellery with Sacet, you can be confident that you’ll be getting an entirely conflict-free piece.
If you’ve shopped for or researched natural diamonds, you may have come across the Kimberley Process. After the 11-year civil war in Sierra Leone, West Africa, attention was finally brought to light on conflict diamonds and the issues within the diamond industry. So, the Kimberley Process was created. With 54 members representing 81 counties, this process aims to reduce the conflict trade by preventing these diamonds from entering the mainstream market. So far, it’s been extremely successful and has reduced the trade to less than 1% globally. But, while it has made fantastic strides, it isn’t perfect and more can still be done to avoid conflict diamonds.
