On industry level, it means implementing and operating in a circular economy. As much as it is important to consider how jewellery is produced and which material goes into it, as much it is important to monitor how it is consumed and what it provides for the mankind. The chain of supply and demand is the fuel behind our economic system and if you don’t have both, you don’t have growth. Because capitalism is designed to promote continuous growth, it requires a steady supply and an even more consistent demand.

This can be regulated at different levels of our industry by actively seeking ways to balance, and strategically manage consumption and desires in this frugality-driven lifestyle. From empowering communities involved in mining to educating consumers who are consuming. In contrast to the 'take-make-waste' linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.

This challenges the debate of lab-grown diamonds v/s natural diamonds, Up-cycled jewellery v/s recycled jewellery amongst many. Jewellery industry employs over 100 million people, a lot of them live in some of the world’s most economically depressed areas and are involved in activities like mining & gem cutting. Lab grown diamond activity creates job deficits and contributes to a larger pool of carbon foot prints. We need to asses that are we creating solution that gives rise to another problem? Are we over consuming the jewellery and then recycling it which in turn consumes more energy and leaves equal environmental impact?
