Thanks to its comprehensive monitoring and control system, Bvlgari can claim to produce 100% of its jewellery with gold from certified sources as of January 2022.
The unique and ambitious milestone of offering jewels made from fully ethical gold is the result of a continuous improvement process across the value chain. This comes alongside with the renewal of the Chain-of-Custody certification by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), of which Bvlgari has been a member since 2006. The three-year certification, first obtained by the company in 2015, promotes the usage of responsibly sourced gold across the entire supply chain, confirming Bvlgari’s commitment to transparency and gold traceability through its manufacturing and sourcing processes as well as through those of its suppliers, while maintaining the highest consideration for ethics and environment.
With the intention of securing long-term compliance with RJC Chain-of-Custody standard provisions, Bvlgari has implemented an appropriate internal and external management system to ensure the segregation of CoC-certified material in each step of the manufacturing process from metal procurement to the final product.
Bvlgari also implements the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, including the provisions of the Supplement on gold and is conducting due diligence across its gold supply chain.
