Welcome to the Goldsmiths Registration Scheme. This is Fairtrade’s unique way of enabling the many thousands of ethical goldsmiths, silversmiths, small jewellers and artists to participate in the Fairtrade story and support Fairtrade certified artisanal miners.

By registering as a Fairtrade Goldsmith you will be able to purchase certified Fairtrade gold and precious metals from authorised suppliers in a semi-finished form, such as sheet, wire, tube and casting grain to use in your work. You will also be able to buy ‘white label/unbranded‘ gold and precious metal items such as wedding rings or engagement ring mounts that have been pre-stamped with the Fairtrade Mark by the licensed supplier.
Annual registration as a Fairtrade Goldsmith is free and requires very little administration. Jewellers and goldsmiths who join the scheme agree to abide by terms and conditions including not being able to stamp their creations with the Fairtrade Mark, using pre-approved marketing and communication materials, using no more than 500g gold or platinum and 2kg silver per year, and allowing spot-audits to check compliance with these terms and conditions.
Naturally we hope that all jewellers will consider becoming full license holders and take advantage of the opportunity to stamp the Fairtrade Mark in their designs, to demonstrate full physical traceability from the certified mine. However with as much as 70% of the international jewellery market consisting of small family jewellers and goldsmiths, the Goldsmiths Registration Scheme is a great way to enjoy using Fairtrade certified metals and directly benefit artisanal and small-scale miners and their communities, while increasing consumer access to Fairtrade gold.
