Tiffany co responsible mining program

Tiffany & Co. - Responsible Mining Program

  • “Tiffany & Co. strives to source diamonds, gemstones and precious metals from mines that conform to high standards of social and environmental responsibility. We source metals and diamonds used in Tiffany & Co. owned and operated manufacturing facilities directly from known mines when possible.”

  • “We believe that the most important contribution we can make to advance a responsible sourcing agenda is to use the Tiffany brand to encourage jewelry consumers to demand responsibly sourced materials.”
