Bulgari 100% Ethically sourced

Bulgari announces that starting from the 1st January 2022, 100% of its jewels will be officially produced with gold from fully traceable certified sources

Due to its comprehensive tracking and auditing system, Bulgari is today the first and only player in the global jewellery scene who will be able to daim to produce 100% of its jewels with gold coming from certified sources from the 1st January 2022.

The unique and ambitious milestone of offering jewels made from fully ethical gold is the result of a continuous improvement process across our value chain. This cornes alongside with the renewal of the prestigious Chain-of-Custody certification by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), of which Bulgari has been a member since 2006. The three-year certification, first obtained by the company in 2015, promotes the usage of responsibly sourced gold across the entire supply chain, confirming Bulgari's commitment to transparency and gold traceability through its manufacturing and sourcing processes as well as through those of its suppliers, while keeping the highest consideration for ethics and environment.

"The sustainable issue in the luxury segment is becoming an increasingly important requirement in the certification world that provides the guarantee of a responsibly managed supply chain," said the Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin on this new milestone. "At Bulgari we are committed to transparency and traceability through our manufacturing process as well as those of our suppliers. Since 2015 our gold is sourced from RJC-certified suppliers and our consistent commitment has driven us to a full production made of certified gold from 2022."

"I would like to congratulate Bulgari on the renewal of their certification, which testify the continuous and strong effort towards crafting responsible products,"  commented the executive Director of the Responsible Jewellery Council Iris Van der Veken. "This result is even more remarkable considering the Company achievement that starting from the beginning of 2022, 100% of its jewels will be produced with gold from Jully traceable certified sources; an important milestone for the whole industry. ln this era of trust and resilience, now more thon ever there is a need for companies to inspire, take action and commit towards a journey of purpose, and continuous improvement.
