At Ken & Dana Design, we maintain a holistic approach to our business to ensure that each piece is environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and incredibly unique.
In keeping with our ethical commitment, all of our jewelry is responsibly handcrafted in NYC. We do not engage in overseas production and everyone involved in our supply chain earns a generous living wage. All of our diamond suppliers are Kimberley Process compliant, which is a certification system that prohibits the trading of diamonds from war-torn regions. In addition, we use eco-silver, eco-gold, and eco-platinum from melted down, already existing supplies to the furthest extent possible. By using recycled metal we help to decrease the global demand for newly mined gold and the social/environmental destruction that comes with it. For more information about recycled metal, please visit our partner Hoover & Strong.
Ken & Dana Design donates a portion of proceeds to Global Witness from every engagement ring sold. This powerful organization helps to ensure that natural resources drive peaceful and sustainable development, rather than providing the funds for conflict and corruption. Over the years we have helped raise thousands of dollars for the Brady Campaign, Red Cross, and the Harlem Children’s Zone.
Our supply chain will never be perfect. So it is with continued education and promoting consumer awareness that we are able to get closer to perfection over time. We adhere to the trade's best practices, so that we may create jewelry in the most ethical manner possible, while supporting charities and organizations that promote positive changes. It is our policy to be fully transparent and forthcoming with regard to every part of our supply chain. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
