Novita Diamonds partners with charity Dress For Success
Nov 26, 2021
Novita Diamonds was born from a deep-rooted desire to serve our customers ethically, in every sense of the word. It starts with our firm refusal to deal with mined diamonds and be complicit, by association with human suffering and environmental destruction, to providing real lab-grown diamonds  at astonishingly affordable prices. With the help of our valuable customers, we have come a long way towards achieving our goals. However, we always ask, 'what more can we do to give back?'. Fortunately, we have found a partner who is as eager as us to empower the community.

 

An Empowering Partnership

We are thrilled and proud to announce our new partnership with Dress for Success to bring positive change and look forward to a long-term and fruitful cooperation. Why specifically Dress for Success and not any other charity? Because we strongly believe in their mission statement, which is as follows: 'Dress for Success is a not-for-profit organisation that helps women who may have fallen into financial difficulty find work and get back on their feet. Each year, Dress for Success helps over 4,500 unemployed women across Australia to secure employment and achieve financial independence.'
The effect of the COVID pandemic on every stratum of society is as profound as far-reaching, altering, often permanently, how we live our life and work. Businesses around the globe had to adapt, or face closure, to the unprecedented challenges brought in by the pandemic, and we are no different. With the focus and dedication of our team, we have been not only been able to survive but thrive over the past two difficult years. With our founder, Iris, at the helm, NOVITA DIAMONDS as a women-led company with a majority of female employees, has succeeded in establishing an organic workplace, through great effort, with an inclusive culture of staff confidence and personal responsibility. At NOVITA DIAMONDS, everyone is encouraged to voice their opinion and pitch in their ideas, no matter how outlandish, and influence the company's direction.
 
Therefore, it is no surprise that we are fully aware of the, often underreported by the mainstream media, a phenomenon called "She-cession", an economic downturn where job and income losses are affecting women more than men. As a majority female-led company, we want to take an active role in being part of the solution and do our part in helping women succeed who otherwise, through no fault of their own, are not allowed to achieve financial security. With an excess of 85% of our workforce being female, we empathise first-hand how difficult it can be to secure a job in a profoundly unfair job market to find the confidence to ask for what you rightfully deserve- happiness and mental wellbeing achieved through financial stability.
 
At NOVITA DIAMONDS, as a diamond jewellery manufacturer, we are in the business of bringing to life artefacts of beauty and brilliance meant to encompass love and deep sentimental value. Therefore, more than most, we are aware that although jewellery like studs and pendants are often seen as an indicator of wealth and social status, however, to many, it can also be a personality statement. Similar to the personal choice of clothes and shoes, jewellery is often a vital part of the wearers' self-esteem and necessary to boost one's confidence. As previously mentioned, women need every little bit of their hard-earned confidence to face a society and job market that is often stacked against them.
