Inspired by the beauty of natural gold nuggets, MAKAL’s founder, Daniela Colaiacovo, made a commitment to honour their raw organic form through truly responsible jewellery craftsmanship.

Her family mine in Central America was the first of its kind to be fully certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council for its ethical and sustainable mining practices, and it was from these nuggets that MAKAL’s first collection was born.

Today, to meet demand, MAKAL’s nuggets are sourced from our partner’s known and trusted mines in Canada. All materials are sourced in line with the requirements of our Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes our commitment to uphold a range of environmental and social standards.

Other gold used in our jewellery pieces comes from Fairtrade certified sources and directly contributes to improving the working conditions of artisanal miners in South America and Africa.

The Emeralds in our collections are sourced directly from Muzo mines in Colombia, which have been assessed to verify the chain of custody, supported by our internal traceability system.

MAKAL’s team have personally visited the mines we work with in Colombia to verify their performance and understand the route the gemstones take from the mines to our workshops in Europe.

MAKAL has also partnered with Muzo to create an exquisite, limited edition statement ring, featuring Muzo emeralds and MAKAL gold nuggets. Discover more about our Bespoke Commissions here.
