RESPONSIBLE JEWELLERY

The House’s ethical commitments

THE KIMBERLY PROCESS

Established in 2003, the Kimberly Process is an international resolution made by the United Nations to ensure the traceability of the rough diamond supply chain. Now adopted by more than 75 countries, the object of the Process is to halt the diamond trade emanating from zones of conflict.

Brigitte Ermel Paris puts a priority on the selection of its raw materials.

It chooses its diamonds in the utmost respect of the Process from well-reputed suppliers who guarantee complete traceability in their sourcing.

In 2016, Brigitte Ermel Paris obtained the Responsible Jewellery Council’s certification, attesting to ethical and responsible practices in social, societal and environmental matters.

Today, this organisation, which regulates the Jewellery professions, includes nearly 1,000 members throughout the world.
