Our mission is to help our Customers “Celebrate Life. Express Love.®” We do this every day with the products we sell and the values that guide our actions – from collaboration and passion to focusing on our Customers’ needs. Our mission and our business rely on the integrity of our products and our people.

We recognize that there are direct and indirect impacts generated by our activities, in particular through our supply chain. This is why Signet has taken a leadership role in the development of harmonized industry guidance and standards for many years to ensure that our jewelry is made with integrity, and sourced from a supply chain that is held to a higher standard.

Our Goals

  1. Achieve Responsible Jewelry Council membership for a total of 250 Signet Suppliers in 2018

  2. Create the Signet Responsible Sourcing Protocol for Colored Gemstones in 2019

  3. Initiate Phase II of the Signet Responsible Sourcing Protocol for Diamonds aimed at significantly increasing the integrity of the melee supply chain over time

Signet is leading efforts for the continuous improvement in the integrity of the global jewelry supply chain through our own corporate social responsibility initiatives and our active role as the industry leader.” David Bouffard Vice President of Corporate Affairs

The open-source SRSPs are collaboratively created with input from:

80+ Suppliers

Signet Leadership

As the world’s largest retailer of diamond jewelry, we know we must lead by example. Our dedication to product integrity is at the core of how we do business. As part of our supply chain policy, we have worked collaboratively to advance rigorous sourcing standards through the award-winning Signet Responsible Sourcing Protocols (SRSPs). There are currently Protocols covering Tungsten, Tantalum, Tin and Gold (3TG), Diamonds, Platinum Group Metals and Silver. The Protocol for Colored Gemstones is currently under development and due to be published in 2019.
