Anna-Mieke Anderson

Anna Mieke-Anderson

Anna-Mieke Anderson (pronounced Annameeka), originally from the South Pacific (born in New Zealand and raised in Sydney, Australia). She currently resides in Portland Oregon USA and is the Founder and CEO of MiaDonna & Company.

She started out in the fashion world – as a kid she grew up “back stage” with a mother that modeled and a film art director for a father. Her teen years were spent on stage and as an adult she returned backstage as a high fashion makeup artist. Now she is a mother, philanthropist and entrepreneur.

Anna-Mieke was a woman passionate about learning the origin of her earth-mined diamond – what she found was startling. She became so haunted by what she learned about the trade of illicit diamonds, that she took off her own diamond wedding ring and didn’t look back.

“People need to know that the unethical harvesting and trading of diamonds is still damaging communities and lives.” says Anna-Mieke

She started by sponsoring a child in Liberia, Africa and then set out to find a diamond alternative she could live with. In search of a conflict-free diamond, she soon realized that the only true conflict free diamond was a man-made option. The female entrepreneur knew there was a better way and quickly discovered she wasn’t the only one in search of a beautiful, ethical diamond alternative, that was also affordable – MiaDonna & Company was born.

Pushing boundaries in an industry heavily dominated by men and old traditions, Anna-Mieke offers consumers an alternative to mined diamonds: a man made, eco-friendly, beautiful and affordable diamond.

“We can now make diamonds in a modern-day lab environment, that are more beautiful and affordable than earth-mined diamonds; without the conflict that is associated with getting them out of the earth,” states Anna-Mieke.

Fueled by her passion to give back, Anna-Mieke has built her eco-friendly empire from the grassroots level creating one of the greenest eco-friendly jewelry boutiques online. And it wasn’t long before Engagement101 crowned her, “The Queen of Eco-Friendly Engagement Rings.” While humbled by this title, she considers it a true honor to be seen as an industry leader.

She has taken her efforts a step further – Anna-Mieke founded The Greener Diamond, which is MiaDonna’s charity foundation dedicated to rebuilding communities negatively impacted by the harvesting and trading of earth-mined diamonds. Passionate about her foundation’s work, she has personally visited West Africa to oversee the 100-acre rice farm in Sierra Leone and is currently planning a community farm in Liberia, all funded by MiaDonna® consumers.

The work Anna-Mieke is doing has captured attention around the globe by creating a conversation among diamond consumers. MiaDonna® has quickly built a strong reputation and loyal following with their jewelry designs going viral on social media outlets, creating an overwhelmingly positive consumer demand for MiaDonna’s eco-friendly offerings. MiaDonna® has received a spot on the Portland Business Journals’ Fastest Growing Private Companies with an impressive growth rate, now for two years in a row.

“We’re dedicated to making a difference” explains Anna-Mieke, “We don’t just write checks to foundations, hoping they do a good job. Instead, we create our own projects that restore diamond-mining communities – and visit those communities, to ensure we’re making a serious impact. It’s a good feeling.”

The Dali Lama once said, “Western women will save the world” and Anna-Mieke is proving that he might be right.
