Welcome to Fair Trade Gemstones

About us

Fair Trade Gemstones is a family business started by David Hargreaves, a mining engineer who has spent more than 25 years developing and consulting to the gemstone industry in both diamonds and coloured stones.

He has developed gemstone mines in Africa which are prototypes and early examples of fair trade practice. He still consults extensively in the diamond and gemstone trade.

He holds first class mine manager certificates in the UK and South Africa and, as a miner himself, understands and develops mines which uphold his principles.
