The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) announced that Signet Jewelers Limited has achieved certification meeting the ethical, human rights, social and environmental standards as established by the RJC’s Member Certification System. 


Signet Jewelers’ certification encompasses all of its US and UK operations, which total over 1,800 retail locations. Signet Jewelers joins Cartier as the second of RJC’s founding members to be certified.


The successful verification assessment of Signet Jewelers was conducted by Specialized Technologies Resources – Responsible Sourcing (STR-RS), one of the independent third party auditing firms accredited to the RJC’s Member Certification System.


“Signet’s certification across its US and UK retail stores, will send a strong message that responsible business practices are a necessity for today’s businesses. RJC warmly congratulates the Signet team on this outstanding effort,” says Michael Rae, RJC’s Chief Executive Officer.


“Signet has the goal to operate as a profitable and socially responsible specialty retail jeweler. Therefore, a key objective is seeking to uphold our social, ethical and environmental principles and to ensure that these principles are upheld throughout the supply chain. 


In Signet’s view the most efficient and effective way of achieving this commitment is through its membership of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) and compliance with its principles and Code of Practices. 


Signet intends to do what it can within its sphere of influence to promote and bring greater awareness of the RJC to the industry,” says Mike Barnes, CEO, Signet Jewelers.
