As one of the world’s premier jewelers, Tiffany & Co. has taken a leadership role in promoting responsible sourcing of precious metals and gemstones.
The precious metals in Tiffany Garden are obtained only from mines that meet high standards of social and environmental performance.
Diamonds are sourced from countries where diamond mining contributes to broader economic and social development goals. These and other efforts are designed to nurture beauty that lasts, the essence of Tiffany’s promise to their customers.
Engagement and wedding collections are available at Tiffany & Co. stores worldwide. More information is available at tiffany.com.

Birks exceeds the Green Gold standard by sourcing most of their gold directly from mines that adhere to “best practices” in their mining operations including ecologically sound procedures and responsible socio-economic mining practices.
This chain of custody sourcing ensures that Birk’s precious metals are ethically and environmentally responsible, and that the mines are preserved and restored to their natural state.
This certification provides consumers with a trustworthy assurance that Birk’s gold and silver are sourced responsibly. Each year, through their ethical sourcing practices, Birk’s prevents at least 500,000 tons of earth from being mined.
Cartier is one of the founding members of the Responsible Jewelry Council (RJC).
The mission of this not-for profit organisation: to establish a code of conduct for participants in the jewelry trade- including precious watches- from mine to retail. The organization has grown to over 270 members today. More info on responsiblejewellery.com.
Cartier accounts for a share of the world’s gold and gems consumption, so they have chosen – as a world-renowned jeweler – to take a leading role in advancing exemplary ethical conduct.
It is a natural choice, considering Cartier’s reputation as well as their commitment to excellence. Consequently, the fight against conflict diamonds is a major priority of their Corporate Responsibility policy.
