A great amount of attention is dedicated to the respect and conservation of natural resources. Since the beginning of its history, Vhernier made a decision: to use only the best natural materials for its jewellery, provided that procurement of these materials allowed for the health and maintenance of the ecosystem from which they come. A demanding choice, and one that requires commitment, something Vhernier has never deviated from. This is why, for example, the ebony chosen by Vhernier comes exclusively from very old or fallen trees.
This same approach is also demanded from suppliers, who must meet specific requirements and provide essential certifications. The diamonds used by Vhernier, for example, are exclusively from suppliers who participate in the Kimberley Process, a protocol guaranteeing that profits derived from the stone trade are not used to fund civil wars.
ATTENTION GIVEN TO THE ENTIRE SUPPLY CHAIN
Each contributing role is fundamental to Vhernier. As such, the brand takes great care in making sure that each link of the creation chain takes its responsibility seriously. Strict controls of the supply chain being necessary, they are possible thanks to long-standing relationships developed by Vhernier with solid partners, each one of which participates in Vhernier’s quest for transparency and respect for the conditions expected of them, such as among other things, the environmental impact of their installations, the location of their laboratories, labour conditions and the treatment of employees. With frequent on-site visits, Vhernier checks compliance with these conditions. This has created a relationship with partners that is characterized by continuous collaboration and a mutually beneficial path to growth.
