OUR ABOVEGROUND DIAMONDS & ETHICS
"Monarc’s Aboveground Commitment Collection is a ceremonial jewellery series that does not compromise social and environmental justices. Aboveground production is boutique, based on modern-day craftsmanship, and upholds the modern tenets of worker’s rights and social responsibility.
From the outset we wanted to create an engagement and wedding ring offering that is more in line with the core values of love and marriage. Monarc’s Aboveground Commitment Collection brings sustainability and transparency to jewellery items that signify one of the most important moments in our lives."
