We built MAKAL on the idea that not only will our customers take pride in owning a MAKAL piece, but those who worked so hard to discover and connect us with the natural gemstones, gold nuggets and precious metals that make MAKAL so special, also benefit. We only source responsibly produced materials and pay scrupulous attention to our supply chain to ensure that our own business partners respect people, communities and the environment.
MAKAL follows international industry standards set by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC). Our founder’s family mine in Central America, from where we first sourced gold nuggets, was the first of its kind to be fully certified. Our other suppliers are subject to our internal due diligence procedure to ensure they are aligned with our environmental and social values. The diamonds in our collections are from RJC members and the coloured gemstones from producers that we have personally verified as meeting the highest industry standards. All our jewellery is set in Fairtrade certified gold and directly contributes to improving the working conditions of artisanal miners in Africa.
Our goal is for our customers and collectors to wear and treasure our MAKAL pieces with confidence knowing that every piece of our jewels is responsible sourced and positively impacting people and planet.
