(PRESS RELEASE) Rubies in Greenland in the Spotlight: Yes, that’s right, we are talking about rubies mined in the southwest of this arctic island in a region called Aappaluttoq (meaning “Red” in Greenlandic) around 150 km from Nuuk, the capital. These rubies are responsibly extracted, adhering to the strictest human rights, labour, environmental, mining and product disclosure practices throughout each step of the supply chain. For this reason, the mine has been recognized as the newest source of responsible rubies in the world.

FACET, a Spanish company, is considered one of the champions of sustainability in this sector and a significant driving force in responsible manufacturing. Together with Tracemark and Greenland Ruby, FACET is launching a collection of the most sustainable classic jewelry in the world with the oldest rubies to date (nearly 3 billion years old according to expert geological studies).

FACET also contributes to the PinkPolarBear Foundation, an independent non-profit created by Greenland Ruby and their partners to support all aspects of international polar research. The foundation is especially concerned with the effects of climate change on the environment, stimulating education, understanding the needs, and supporting the inhabitants of Greenland, both animal and human who are affected by the accompanying cultural changes.

“Once again, FACET takes a step forward towards a sustainable and responsible industry with a new alliance with Tracemark and Greenland Ruby. This collaboration symbolises our commitment to changing the industry towards one that is more transparent, responsible, and innovative.” — José Miguel Serret, CEO de FACET.

The exclusive 27-piece collection ‘FIRE UNDER ICE’ is made up of solitaire rings, pendants and earrings with diamonds and Greenlandic Rubies as the centre stones of these pieces – completely traceable and with a Certificate of Origin – with recycled traceable gold with a CoC certificate (issued by RJC).

Thanks to the technology Tracemark offers, the end consumer can scan their QR code and obtain fully audited information about every step in their jewels and components’ journey, from extraction to ownership.




When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
