The journey begins deep within the Earth. FairminedGold starts at the source – sustainable and responsible mining practices that prioritize both the environment and the communities involved.

Fairmined is an assurance label which certifies mines with a set of rigorous criteria established by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) to promote responsible and ethical practices in artisanal and small-scale gold mining operations. Fairmined is a global certification label that assures consumers that the gold has been responsibly mined and sourced.

From mine to market, Ofrenda Jewelry is committed to bring you gold with a purpose. Choosing Fairmined gold for our jewelry means choosing a chain of responsibility that supports miners, communities, and our planet.

It is the best gold to turn this raw material into the promise of something beautiful.  We'll take a look at how the gold actually looks like inside the Earth in the next post!
