The life-changing power of gemstones
Being able to create pieces like this is why we're in the gemstone business
As one of Stauer’s best customers, you already know that in order to find the rarest, most treasured gems you must put some miles on your passport. I want to give you a peek inside a gemstone adventure that’s very close to our hearts. One that gets about as close as you can to the source, and the incredible individuals who mine these spectacular treasures.
Through the Gem Legacy Foundation, Stauer works to support mining communities in East Africa to further develop education, vocational training, and local economies in areas where our stones come from. We’re dedicated to giving back to them, paying tribute to their beautiful work.
The stones in this remarkable pendant were purchased directly from mining community members in Kenya and Tanzania, ensuring they earned a fair price for their goods. In designing these pieces, we went to one of our favorite goldsmiths in Italy, who works wonders with rough stones.
Being able to create pieces like this are why we’re in the gemstone business. Jewelry has always been about creating special moments, and at its heart it’s about family. From the families who run the mines in East Africa to the families of gold artisans in Italy, to the families celebrating with these special gifts, jewelry has the power to transform and enrich lives. Each pendant is unique. No two are alike.
