"Buy less, choose well, make it last." - Vivienne Westwood
Hardy Brothers, in line with its responsibility as a custodian and authority in luxury jewellery, is proud to have adopted sustainable practices.
Brand Manager Alexander Bishop spoke to Perth Now about what sustainability in jewellery looks like.
“Luxury jewellery supports this [sustainability] directly through its materials and craftsmanship to create longevity not only in design, but the product itself,” Bishop said.
“We have five key pillars we work towards to ensure we eliminate unethical behaviours, reduce energy consumption and maximise environmental standards,” he said.
“Our policies maximise appropriate environmental standards in the extraction and processing of precious metals and gems, at each stage of the manufacturing process, including ethical labour and human rights standards in accordance with International Labour Organisation (ILO) Conventions and Covenants throughout the supply chain,” he said.
Hardy Brothers also support the elimination of ”conflict diamonds” through the Kimberly Process and the adoption of “chain of custody systems” to decrease the risk of gems originating from non-sustainable sources.
