When it comes to our silver and gold, we are always exploring new and responsible ways to source these precious metals - which includes sourcing it from a Responsible Jewellery Council certified supplier called MMTC-PAMP.
India’s only LBMA-accredited gold refinery (which is a global authority for precious metals), MMTC is an industry leader in responsible precious metal sourcing. Our primary source of silver, - totalling 80% across our entire supply chain - we opted to source from them as sustainability is built at the very heart of what they do.
From environmental compliance to conflict-free minerals and grassroots people-centric initiatives, they follow stringent protocols to ensure that their partners in the supply chain act responsibly across the full production cycle.
When sourcing, they follow best practices in good governance and the highest standards set by global bodies to weed out potential human rights violations, conflict sourcing, and corruption; responsible sourcing is “non-negotiable” for them.
Their environmental responsibility has seen them be awarded the ISO14001 accreditation for efficient environmental management, while they uphold Global Green Standards and have a 100% recycling policy for water in their processes.
Having received several awards for their work, their local communities are also the cornerstone of their business, with an aim to achieve “improved welfare and greater equality.” Initiatives that they’ve set up include education and skilling projects, water safety and infrastructure which you can read more on here.
