The Symposium on Artisanal Small Scale Gemstone Miners
in the Time of Covid-19

The Responsible Jewelry Transformative (producer of the Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference) recently hosted a two-day symposium on the gemstone sector of the jewelry industry during the pandemic. Covid-19 has had catastrophic effects on the people who mine the gemstones essential to jewelry industry supply chains. These communities have almost no reserve during good times, and now they face severe food insecurity, limited access to health care, and limited protection against coronavirus infection.
