Ethical And responsible

Conducting business in an environmentally and socially responsible manner has long been an integral part of B S Puttaiya & Sons' commitment to our stakeholders and lies at the very heart of our business. It means that throughout the journey of every piece of our jewelry, particular care has been taken to ensure responsible business practices, support for the advancement of women and protection of the natural world, which is the ultimate source of our gold and diamonds.

Policy on Conflict Diamonds

Diamonds are meant to be a gift of love, and we at B S Puttaiya & Sons Jewellers detest the way in which some gems have been used to fund conflict. To prevent the sale of conflict diamonds, governments, our industry and human-rights groups created the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) in 2002, which today regulates 99% of the worldwide rough diamond supply.<

We require all of our suppliers to provide us with a written warranty, stating that their diamonds come from Kimberley-certified sources and are not involved in funding conflict. The warranty statement, which was officially recognized at the creation of the Kimberley Process, reads:

"The diamonds herein" invoiced have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with the United Nations Resolutions. The seller hereby guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the suppliers "of these diamonds".

Statement on Responsible Gold

We are fully committed to the responsible sourcing of gold and other minerals that make their way into our jewelry products. Whenever possible, B S Puttaiya & Sons Jewellers procures recycled metals (including gold, platinum and sterling silver) to use in repairs and manufactured pieces. We believe gold should be extracted and processed in a manner that respects the needs of people and the earth.
