Philosophy of Lyght
Our philosophy at Lyght is to take your needs and wishes personally as if they were our own. We promise to provide the highest level of service, enabling you to get the art and jewelry of your dreams. Lyght's art and jewelry is some of the finest and most unique in the world. We want you to display your art wear and your jewelry and show others what Lyght has done for you. Your 100% satisfaction with the pieces you purchase from us is of utmost importance to us and will never be sacrificed. Our philosophy not only applies to how our valued customers are treated but also extends to our gold, silver, diamond, and colored gemstone sourcing.
Lyght takes pride in being fully committed to protecting human rights, recycling and preserving the environment in every way possible, thus maintaining the highest ethical standards. Our designers and business partners uphold the same level of excellence and principles. This extends to our gold, diamond, and colored gemstone sourcing. Responsible recycling and mining with our partners is of most importance in order to sustain the industry and protect the environment. Below is a list of our current practices:
- Use 100% recycled precious metals certified by SCS Global Services as much as possible.
- Work to ensure that the precious metals that are not recycled come from Fairmined suppliers who meet the highest human rights, social, and environmental criteria.
- Use certified diamonds and colored gemstones that were reclaimed to be reused in new pieces as much as possible.
- Work to ensure the diamonds and colored gemstones that are not reclaimed are sourced from supplies that again meet the highest human rights, social, and environmental criteria.
We view our policies of responsible manufacturing, recycling, and mining as an evolving standard. We commit to continuously review these policies. We hope you support our sincere endeavors to make socially and environmentally-responsible choices.
Lyght has a zero-tolerance policy toward conflict diamonds, along with the global diamond industry. We abide by the Kimberley Process, which tracks diamonds from mine to market. At Lyght, we only purchase diamonds through suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards set by the Kimberley Process. Lyght diamonds are guaranteed to be conflict free. If one of our suppliers was ever found to violate that process, we would immediately sever that relationship. For more information on this issue, please visit DiamondFacts.org.
About The Kimberley Process
Lyght supports the Kimberley process, which is an International process of tracking and certifying diamonds. In April of 2003, President Bush and congress passed a law adopting the Kimberley Process. It requires all US diamond retailers to buy diamonds from manufacturers who have documentation that the merchandise was obtained through legitimate channels. This is enforced by US Customs Agents. Lyght is committed to ensuring that the highest ethical standards are observed when sourcing our diamonds.
