The story of how Fairtrade certification is helping is similar for all producers. A fair wage, more security and a helping hand with developing the local community. It's important to remember that this helps both farmers and those people who make a living by creating items, such as jewellery, who need secure buyers to continue their livelihoods.
So instead of a case study telling you about a particular farm or co-operative here's a selection of the lovely Fairtrade jewellery that's out there. Be tempted and buy some, you'll feel great every time you wear it and, trust me, you won't be able to stop yourself telling everyone it's Fairtrade too!
