MAQÉ Ethics

As a young brand in an old industry, MAQÉ wants to help push for a new standard in the world of jewelry. We believe in responsible mining and ethical sourcing. That’s why our stones are traceable from mine to market and we solely use recycled metals. We give back to mining communities by supporting Gem Legacy.

Pre-loved stones:

We love using pre-loved stones. They look beautiful once repurposed. And because they don’t require any industrial processes,there’s no additional human or environmental impact.

Recycled metals:

We work exclusively with recycled, high quality gold and platinum that is processed by refiners that share our mission.

Responsibly mined:

MAQÉ wants to make a real social impact by choosing mines that offer good working conditions and fair pay to all those involved. All our gemstones are unheated and untreated.


In an effort to further diminish our ecological footprint we only use recycled or biodegradable materials in our packaging.

We will continue to refine brand ethics and look for new possibilities to improve our brand. By supporting Gem Legacy with 5% of our sales, we give back to miners in East Africa. Gem Legacy supports education, vocational training, and local economies in East African colored gemstone mining communities.
