We at BAUNAT want to make jewellery worthy of the special occasions in life. Those precious, rare moments that deserve to be celebrated with an equally precious and rare gift which will signify them for eternity. The brilliance of such an item cannot be dimmed by the suspicion that it somehow contributed to violence, injustice or exploitation. One must be able to give and wear a diamond with confidence. But simply doing no harm is not enough.
That is why we are committed to knowing the source of our diamonds and to receiving assurances that they are minded sustainably, with respect for people and the environment. In August 2022, BAUNAT obtained the Responsible Jewellery Council
quality label and is now a certified member. The RJC focuses on responsible business, ethics and supply chains within the global jewellery and watch industry to make it more sustainable. We want to be able to share with our clients the good diamonds do for the countries where they are mined and the 10 million people whose livelihoods are supported by the industry, to highlight the many socio-economic benefits that adhere to our beautiful product. As President Mogae of Botswana once said, “For our people, every diamond purchase represents food on the table, better living conditions, better healthcare, safe drinking water, more roads to connect our remote communities and much more.” A quick primer on the benefits of the diamond industry, from healthcare to infrastructure and education, is available at the diamondfacts.org website.
