the steps Monica Vinader take to sustainable jewellery

For OUR PLANET

how we create sustainable gold jewellery
the practices we follow to craft sustainable jewellery

100% Recycled

Gold & Silver

We only use 100% recycled gold vermeil and sterling silver. As a result, by the end of 2021, more than 1,000,000 kg of CO2 emissions will have been avoided.

Avoid. Reduce. Offset.

MV is Carbon Neutral

Our goal is to avoid and reduce emissions wherever possible. As we work towards it, we're offsetting all our current emissions by contributing to Gold Standard climate protection projects that prevent an equivalent amount of CO2 from entering the air.

the sustainable packaging we use for our jewellery

Our Recyclable Packaging

We've rolled out new boxes and bags, which are 100% recyclable and use only FSC paper. With our paperless dispatch, we're saving 1.8 million A4 sheets of paper per year - enough paper to cover Manhattan two times over.

Waving Goodbye to

Single Use Plastic

Single use plastic is pervasive throughout the jewellery industry. We have committed to removing ALL single use plastic from our supply chain in 2021. As of spring 2021, we have sourced alternatives for 85% of the plastic in our supply chain.

Moving towards a

Circular Economy

We encourage everyone to practice responsible consumerism. Our jewellery recycling programme accepts all pieces, regardless of brand. Our 5 year replace warranty and lifetime repair service means you can purchase less and wear longer.

'Reused' & Renewable

Headquarters

We've made the switch to renewable energy in all offices and stores in which we have direct control of the energy supply. The heart of our operations in Norfolk, UK, is a historic 16th century building we preserved in an award-winning development.

Monica Vinader’s responsible jewellery manufacturing

For our people

how we source our materials for jewellery ethically

Responsible Manufacturing

Our jewellery is thoughtfully handcrafted before it makes its way to you. That is the quality standard behind every Monica Vinader piece and a promise we can make because our suppliers are family. After all, we've been together for over 12 years.

100% Responsible Jewellery

Council Certified

All our workshops are Responsible Jewellery Council members and go through Intertek Workplace Conditions Assessment. Regular audits ensure fair wages and hours, employee rights, health and safety, and responsible corporate governance.

Ethical Sourcing

We ensure 100% of our diamonds are responsibly sourced by adhering to the Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council System of Warranties.

Code of Conduct

All of our supply partners have signed our annually reviewed Code of Conduct agreement, which sets out their commitment to responsible management, ensuring fair living wages and working hours, a safe and ethical working environment and to supporting equality, diversity and inclusion within their workforce. The code also includes a commitment from our suppliers to use sustainable raw materials and packaging. We usually have a team member based abroad, regularly visiting each of our suppliers, with other team members frequently joining too. We also engage third party audits, carried out by an accredited independent auditing body.
