Shop with a clear conscience for your gold
When sourcing gold, Tiffany first looks to recycle secondhand gold with an assay standard of 750 (18ct). However, if recycled gold is not available, Fairtrade gold is instead used.
“I know my customers feel the same way I do; that good jewellery should not come with a social or environmental cost. It’s increasingly on people’s minds now to know the back story of the precious metals and gemstones combined in the jewellery they love”.
Tiffany is happy to incorporate any gold or silver family heirlooms or simply “pre-loved” pieces into a new distinctive design.
Why Fairtrade Gold?
• Because it’s a simple, flexible and cost-effective way to source the gold you need responsibly and with traceability – all through an international network that’s recognised and trusted by shoppers.
• As a small business owner myself, I am committed to supporting artisanal and small-scale miners to build a brighter future for themselves, their families and communities.
• Fairtrade certified mines must meet Fairtrade Standards on working conditions, the handling of chemicals, child labour and protecting the environment.
• Miners receive the Fairtrade Minimum Price for their gold, which acts as a safety net when prices fall, and the extra Fairtrade Premium to invest in improving their business and in community projects such as education, clean water and healthcare.
