Next week is one of the biggest days of the year for jewelry sales, Valentine’s Day. Let’s demand that big international jewelry retailers, such as Bulgari, stop buying Burmese gems that fund the Myanmar military.
For decades, Myanmar’s military has committed numerous war crimes against ethnic minority communities as it has consolidated its control over Burma’s gemstone mines. Since the Myanmar military’s February 2021 seizure of power, the army has taken total control of the country’s billion dollar gem industry.
Now, would you take a couple more steps to share the word?
Step #1: Tell Your Friends
Please share this action with your friends and on your social media with this short link: https://bit.ly/bulgari_burma
Step #2: Post on Bulgari’s social media
Please post messages regularly on the social media accounts of Bulgari.
Copy the message below and adapt it as you wish. Add it as a comment on posts showcasing jewelry or watches on the Facebook and Instagram pages of Bulgari.
I refuse to purchase your jewelry and watches until Bulgari states publicly that it will no longer buy blood rubies from Myanmar that profit the Burmese military and its atrocities against the peoples of Myanmar.

Step #3: Visit Your Local Bulgari Store
In addition to signing the petition, would you follow up by visiting one of Bulgari’s stores?
Click on this link to find your local Bulgari store. Visit the store and explain to the store manager why you would never buy from Bulgari as long as it buys gems that profit the Myanmar military.
Step #4: Help Build Our Campaign
Would you make a gift to support our work together? Our campaigns of “citizen sanctions” against the Burmese military’s business empire requires careful research, campaign development, media outreach, and organizing. Please click here to make a gift of $30, $60, $120, $250, or more.
Working together, we passed the BURMA Act and forced companies, including TotalEnergies, Japanese beer giant Kirin, and Harry Winston to end their support of the Myanmar military. Together, we can build our movement to end the Myanmar military’s corrupt and brutal rule.
