Our Ethics

At Nolan and Vada, we believe ethics should not be limited to sourcing of raw materials, but a standard in everything we do. Quality and passion are at the heart of everything our team does.
Ethical in Every Way
Ethical beyond sourcing and materials.
Upholding the highest ethical standards every step of the way, so you can be assured that your piece was made as responsibly as possible.
Our Sapphires
Ethical Sourcing of Sapphires
Unlike diamonds, the truth is that tracing a sapphire's origin is not always possible. However, we work with reputable suppliers who share the same values and standards as set by the World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) and do our best to ensure that every sapphire we sell is mined ethically.
Our Diamonds
Ethical Sourcing of Diamonds
At Nolan and Vada, we have a zero-tolerance policy towards conflict diamonds. Our diamonds are proudly sourced from global manufacturers that comply with the United Nations Kimberley Process in order to ensure all of our diamonds are ethically sourced.
Our Metal
Ethical Sourcing of Metals
As a part of our commitment to the environment, we are proud about the fact that most of the precious metals we use are produced by recycled waste from the Jewellery Industry within Australasia.
Our Practice
Ethical Labour Practices
Unlike many in the industry, we do not get our rings manufactured in countries where there is a risk of compromised labour practices. All our rings are proudly made right here in New Zealand by expert master jewellers & gemsetters with over 20 years of experience in trade.
Our Transparency
Ethical Disclosure of Enhancements
We believe even if the sapphires are enhanced by industry accepted ways, it is not only ethical but also a right of the consumer to know about enhancements before making a purchase. As a part of our process, we disclose any enhancements a sapphire may have gone through.
Quality and passion are at the heart of everything we do. Get in touch and see how together we can bring your love story to life.
