EthicalAll Q&C products are ethically sourced; our gemstones are carefully selected by our jewelry experts. We maintain a widely Canadian based production with partnerships from India and Canada which maintain ethical facilities where employees earn a fair living wage and are also employed under safe working conditions. Being conscious with our production, we only order and produce what is needed to fill demands. Our production facilities work only with requests and ensure we do not waste any overage in materials. We often recycle our own material in house, reuse metals and repurpose any product where ever possible.
