Leading jewelry retailers raise their voice for gold mine workers

14
Feb '06
Eight of the world's top jewelry retailers have promise to move away from "dirty" gold sales and are calling on mining corporations to ensure that gold is produced in more socially and environmentally responsible ways.

The retailers, which are the Zale Corp, the Signet Group (the parent firm of Sterling and Kay Jewelers), Tiffany & Co, Helzberg Diamonds, Fortunoff, Cartier, Piaget, and Van Cleef & Arpels, are being praised by the No Dirty Gold campaign today in a full-page ad in The New York Times, timed to coincide with Valentine's Day, one of the biggest jewelry-buying holidays in the United States.

"Because jewelry retailers buy the majority of gold produced worldwide, they have the power to help clean up the mining industry," said Payal Sampat, co-director of the No Dirty Gold campaign and international campaign director for EARTHWORKS.

"They applaud the leadership of these companies. It's an important first step."
