Corporate Social Responsibility

As a world-leading player in the luxury jewellery and watchmaking industry, de Grisogono is committed to excellence and best practice, both in terms of our jewellery as well as our business practices.

At de Grisogono we are engaged in a continuous process of setting benchmarks and adopting globally recognized industry standards to ensure that we maintain our reputation as a socially responsible jeweller.

We are currently involved in a number of CSR initiatives in order to ensure that our materials are sourced in an ethical and sustainable manner whilst benefitting the communities we work alongside.

RESPONSIBLE JEWELLERY COUNCIL

de Grisogono is a member of an industry standards organisations, the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC). The non-profit association aims to build consumer trust in jewellery and watches through the establishment of a comprehensive international standard. We are currently undergoing the RJC certification process which is conducted through an intensive internal audit that carefully explores sourcing, environmental policies, and human resources processes.

Apprenticeships

At de Grisogono we love to see young people with a passion and eye for jewellery-making, and therefore do everything we can to help them develop and hone their skills. We run a highly comprehensive apprenticeship programme to preserve and transmit the professional skills needed in the Jewellery business. Each year, we recruit new apprentices who are supervised by an apprenticeship master to mentor and assist them throughout their four-year course.
