Csarite unveiled plans during the recent Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair to place the socially responsible gem from Turkey directly into the hands of top designers and retailers who sell phenomenal gems and jewelry. Csarite supplier Milenyum Mining manages the mining, marketing, and sales operations of the naturally color-changing, untreated gem available only from the Anatolian mountains in Turkey, and its mission is to introduce its rare product to more collectors.
Through an integrated effort to better market the gems, Milenyum has enlisted eight renowned designers—Ana Katarina, Alex Soldier, Bijules, Graziela Gems, Nak Armstrong, Pamela Froman, Parulina, Vianna Brasil, and Zaiken—to join its design program and existing stable of talent (which includes Erica Courtney and Jennifer Dawes). Additionally, GIA graduate gemologists will also be available to help host consumer education events at select jewelry stores, thus bringing a new level of excitement and credibility to the retail space. Loose Csarite stones will also be for sale at the events for those who wish to commission a custom piece.
