Tiffany & Co. Standards For Excellence Tiffany & Co. Standards For Excellence

Industry Leadership

As a leader in the luxury industry, we recognize the opportunity we have to influence culture and set standards for excellence—not only in fine jewelry and craftsmanship but also in what it means to be a responsible corporate citizen. We have implemented a vertical integration model that gives us a strong chain-of-custody, direct oversight of our manufacturing and a voice for improving global standards and conditions.

Whether it’s protecting pristine landscapes like Yellowstone National Park and Bristol Bay from the damaging effects of mining or voicing support for the protection of human rights in Angola and Zimbabwe, we advocate for important issues and encourage others to join us in creating meaningful change. We understand that the long-term resilience of our planet and its natural resources, the well-being of people and the success of our business go hand-in-hand, which is why it is key for us to have a positive impact where we operate.

Tiffany & Co. Responsible Sourcing Tiffany & Co. Responsible Sourcing

Responsible Mining

We believe fine craftsmanship starts with responsibly sourcing high-quality raw materials and
continues through the creation of the final piece of jewelry. Unlike other jewelers, we source the
majority of our rough diamonds and metals directly from mines we know and from recycled sources.
We are devoted to better understanding the social, economic and environmental impacts of the mining
and processing of precious materials so that we can create positive impacts along the supply chain,
all the way from the mine to our customers.

Tiffany Diamonds

At Tiffany & Co., we are committed to sourcing high-quality
diamonds with complete integrity. We value traceability and the
importance of knowing the origin of our diamonds from the moment
they’re culled from the earth. That’s why, to start with, our diamonds
are only sourced from countries that are full participants in the
Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. But we don’t just stop there.
We go above and beyond the Kimberley Process—with our own
chain-of-custody controls and by advocating for stronger global
standards—to ensure that human rights and the environment are
protected. We also strongly believe in investing in the local
communities in which we operate through local hiring, robust job
training and fair wage practices at our cutting and polishing facilities
around the world.
