Holding the highest industry standards,

to guide where our product is sourced

Michael Hill is a proud, certified member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC); the peak industry organisation established to advance responsible ethical, human rights, social and environmental practices throughout the diamond, gold and platinum group metals jewellery supply chain. Currently over 85% of our product suppliers are RJC certified, with a goal for 100% suppliers to hold the certification by FY25.

To achieve certified status, RJC members must satisfy a rigorous independent third-party audit that assesses the organisation’s business practices and management systems against RJC’s Code of Practices standards for environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, including human rights, responsible production, and anti-money laundering.

The jewellery and watch industry has a larger ambition to contribute to a better, fairer world. When you buy from an RJC certified member, you are choosing a company that is recognised for its ongoing commitment to put people and planet first.

Conflict-Free Diamonds

Michael Hill is committed to offering only conflict-free diamonds in our jewellery.

We purchase diamonds from legitimate sources in accordance with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) as supported by the World Diamond Council System of Warranties. As part of our business practices and supply agreements, we require diamond suppliers to warrant that the diamonds are conflict-free.

The KPCS is a joint government, international diamond industry and civil society initiative to prevent conflict diamonds from entering the supply chain.

Conflict-Free Gold

We are committed to using conflict-free and responsibly sourced gold. This means that we do not support activities which cause, support or benefit armed conflict, contribute to human rights abuses or breaches of international humanitarian law and money laundering and terrorist financing. Currently majority of our gold is already conflict free, however we plan for 100% conflict free all gold and silver by 2025. 

In order to comply with our commitments, we source through suppliers who provide assurances that the gold in their products is responsibly sourced and conflict free in accordance with recognised frameworks maintained by leading industry bodies for precious metals, such as the London Bullion Market Association, the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre or the Responsible Minerals Initiative. These international frameworks have been recognised by the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development and protect the integrity of the global supply chain for the precious metal markets.

Introducing Diamonds with the De Beers Code of Origin

We are proud to carry a range of diamonds from the De Beers Code of Origin Trusted Source Program. The Code of Origin is a customised code unique to your diamond, which provides assurance that it is natural and conflict-free, and was discovered by De Beers in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa or Canada.
