ETHICAL COMMITMENTS

CHAUMET DIAMOND SELECTION

Chaumet takes the sourcing of its raw materials very seriously, especially with regard to its diamonds.

THE KIMBERLEY PROCESS
In accordance with the Kimberley process, Chaumet certifies that all of its diamonds are cut by legitimate sources and that they are not involved in armed conflicts, in compliance with the United Nations’ resolutions, on the basis of written guarantees produced by its suppliers.
What is the Kimberley Process?

The Kimberley process, which has been in practice since 2003 and adopted by over 75 countries, is a joint government, industry and civil society initiative to stem the flow of rough diamonds coming from conflict zones, defined as such by the United Nations.

The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) guarantees with a certificate that each rough diamond that crosses an international border between two signing countries are ”conflict-free”.

RESPONSIBLE JEWELLERY COUNCIL CERTIFICATION (RJC)
As a member of the RJC since 2005, Chaumet operates transparently to promote ethical practices that are socially and environmentally responsible, respecting human rights from one end of the jewellery chain to the other, from extraction to sale.

Following an external audit conducted in 2020, all Chaumet facilities worldwide—including the headquarters, workshops and boutiques—have been recertified as members of the RJC until 2023.
