Sustainability at Garrard

Positive Luxury

At Garrard we believe that sustainability makes our business stronger. It underpins everything we do, from how we source our silver, gold and gemstones to our supplier charter, which ensures our partners’ practices and priorities are in line with our own.

Butterfly Mark

In 2017, we were awarded the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury for our company-wide commitment to sustainability. A third party accreditation mark awarded to luxury brands with a positive social and environmental impact, the Butterfly Mark lets our clients and peers know we are a brand to trust. In 2022, for the third time, we retained the right to use the Butterfly Mark.

Responsible Sourcing

Responsible sourcing is extremely important to us. All of our gold is either recycled or, when new, certified SMO (Single Mine Origin) or Fairtrade. Our diamonds, meanwhile, are acquired exclusively from suppliers who comply with the Kimberley Process, which ensures they are conflict-free.

Committed to Doing Good

We are deeply committed to building rewarding relationships with British charities, particularly those promoting circular, sustainable practices. In July 2023, we announced our latest partnership with Little Village. This London-based charity supports disadvantaged children in the capital by providing pre-loved clothes and equipment through its network of baby banks.

Working Towards Circularity

Today, all surplus gold at Garrard is recovered and recycled, and we also hold a Fairtrade gold license. The world’s first independent ethical certification system for gold, it means that we are licensed to purchase Fairtrade gold for use in our creations.

Royal Warrant Seal

Garrard holds a Royal Warrant as Jewellers, Goldsmiths and Silversmiths, appointed by the former Prince of Wales, HM King Charles III. Driven by His Majesty’s long-standing passion for the environment, earning and maintaining the Royal Warrant is a stringent process that requires us to meet strict sustainability criteria.

Our Urban Garden

On the roof of our flagship Albemarle Street store, an urban garden is flourishing, with three areas of pollinating plants and two beehives buzzing with close to 100,000 honey bees. Opened in 2021 in collaboration with Plan Bee, the garden is designed to support biodiversity in urban areas and make a positive difference to the declining bee population in Britain.

The Future

Looking ahead, we are committed to building a sustainable future for our business and the wider jewellery industry. By evolving and expanding our existing practices, embracing new ones and setting ourselves ambitious targets, we will be able to operate even more ethically in the years ahead.
