Yes. At NEI we take our supply chain very seriously. We only stock diamonds and metals from trusted and traceable sources and we never buy anything from the secondary market. Whenever possible we recycle jewelry and raw material from our archives.
NEI buys diamonds in bulk directly from diamond siteholders. We have been partnering with our diamond suppliers for more than 15 years. We travel on-site to sort and pick cut stones and we rigorously evaluate the diamonds and the supplier facilities, including the use of diamond testing machines.
We are extremely diligent during the supply sourcing process, and although we have an excellent relationship with our suppliers we continue to hold our suppliers to the highest ethical and transparency standards. Still, we regularly send a sample set of our finished items to the lab for testing to ensure our jewelry is what we expect it to be. We can provide you with certificates of origin and compliance should you need them. Please contact us to discuss further, this topic is something we take seriously.
