We are proud that Signet ranked #1 in jewelry retail and 6th overall.

In 2017, Signet was recognized by The Enough Project for its responsible sourcing practices. The new rankings report, produced by the not-for-profit organization, focused on ending conflicts in Africa. The report examines 20 of the world’s largest consumer electronics and jewelry retail organizations on their efforts to support a conflict-free minerals trade and ensure their products aren’t linked to a range of abuses in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Signet was ranked as the #1 Company most praised by NGOs and environmental and social responsibility activists in the first quarter of 2018
