Diamour Inc. works together with suppliers and vendors to influence and encourage safe and responsible practices. In 2013, Diamour Inc. was certified by the Council for Responsible Jewelry Practices; an international not-for-profit standards and certification organization. It has more than 500 Member companies that span the jewelry supply chain from mine to retail. As a RJC Member, Diamour Inc. commit to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices, an international standard on responsible business practices for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals. The Code of Practices addresses human rights, labor rights, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure, and many more important topics in the jewelry supply chain. RJC also works with multi-stakeholder initiatives on responsible sourcing and supply chain due diligence.
Diamour requires our suppliers and their agents to adhere to the RJC Code of Practices. We expect our suppliers to comply with their national labor and environmental laws and regulations and to respect the fundamental International Labor Organization conventions, as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Where the Code or applicable laws address the same issue, the higher of the two standards should apply. This includes: Health & Safety, Remuneration, Working Hours, Discrimination, Harassment and Abuse, Forced Labor, Child Labor and young workers, Freedom of Association, Environment, Ethics, and Integrity. The council's mission statement reads: "To promote responsible ethical, social and environmental practices throughout the diamond and gold jewelry supply chain, from mine to retail." Members work to promote awareness and understanding of key ethical, social, and environmental business responsibility issues by working with members of the fine jewelry industry - including trade organizations, governments, and civil society representatives. Members are committed to seeking economic, social, and environmental benefits from business activities to achieve sustainable development.
