Integrity and Ethics

INTEGRITY & ETHICS

We have been in business since 1974 and our reputation in the industry speaks for itself. However, for those not familiar with the industry and the players within it, we felt it necessary to highlight some of the measures we have taken to establish our admireable credentials in terms of integrity and ethics. We remain fully committed to the highest standards of professionalism in this industry that we love.



ICA MEMBER since 1991.

The International Colored Gemstone Association is the world's largest. Established in 1985 to promote the colored gemstone trade and develop a common code of ethics for its members. We have been a member since 1991, almost since the organization's inception. The ICA has developed one of the most all encompassing codes of ethics in the industry and members are bound by them. A full Grievance Committee and Arbitration Committee sits to investigate any breach of ethics. As a long standing member we are fully committed to this code.
