Avant-Garde Jewelry Uses Ethical Gold Suppliers for Titanium Rings and Tungsten Rings

The Jewelry Retailer Is Committed to Ethical Business Practices, Including the Use of Gold for Inlaid Titanium Jewelry That Is Sourced From Only the Most Socially Responsible Suppliers

MAINEVILLE, OH--(Marketwire - January 14, 2010) - Avant-Garde Jewelry has long been committed to ethically, environmentally and socially responsible business practices, and the company is committed to complete transparency when it comes to their sources of gold for titanium rings and tungsten rings. As recent news reports have highlighted, the sourcing of gold from certain areas of the Congo has been linked to atrocities committed on the Congolese people. Avant-Garde, which sources most of its gold from Stuller Inc., is making every effort to ensure that their suppliers are not involved in any environmentally or culturally negative impacts in their mining activities.

"Stuller Inc. and its affiliated companies have always been and continue to be committed to conducting all phases of its operations in the most ethically, environmentally and socially responsible manner possible," said Stuller representatives in response to concerns from Avant-Garde. "The companies from which we purchase our gold maintain policies and procedures that require social and environmental responsibility on the part of their suppliers... Stuller requests that all suppliers sign an agreement that ensures all environmentally friendly practices are strictly followed."

This goes hand in hand with Avant-Garde's commitment to recycling and reusing material wherever possible and using the safest chemicals in jewelry production. All stones used in their titanium rings, tungsten rings and other fine jewelry products are also guaranteed Conflict Free.
