Reviews

"Few can claim to have precipitated fundamental change in the jewellery business, but Greg Valerio is one of those who can." -- Gaetano Cavalieri - President of The World Jewellery Confederation
"Greg Valerio unveils the ugliness of the beauty business. His truth has a sting, but he also has an unflinching, contagious hope that a better world is possible." -- Shane Claiborne - Activist and founding member of The Simple Way in Philadelphia
"Greg is a true hero." -- Katharine Hamnett CBE - Fashion designer and campaigner
"A fantastic story about how one man wouldn't take no for an answer." -- Harriet Lamb CBE - CEO of Fairtrade International
"Fascinating and inspirational reading." * Life & Work *
This is a David and Goliath story of one who couldn't close his mouth against the wrongs he witnessed - not only the oppression of the workers, but the rape of the land. His model of creating a pure line of jewellery - with completely traceable gold and diamonds - shows how one man with perseverance and vision can effect change. -- Greg Valerio * Netgalley *
Founder of CRED Jewellery and The Observer's `Campaigner of the Year' in 2011, Greg Valerio refused to accept that it was impossible to have gold jewellery that could be certified as fairly traded from the mine to the shop. In achieving this ambition for the UK Market, he has also exposed the jewellery industry's dirty secrets and argued his case passionately with leaders and businessmen world-wide. -- Third Way * Third Way *
