All BiBi Body Jewelry uses only SCS-certified 100% recycled fine gold to insure our gold maintains the utmost humanitarian and environmental standards.
SCS Global Services certification ensures that recycled metals are used while conflict metals and other questionable materials are avoided.
SCS partners with companies to “drive practices, policies and processes that advance the goals of sustainable development and give innovators a competitive advantage.” Their services enable companies and consumers to make informed decisions based on “the highest level of environmental, ethical and quality accountability.”
BiBi Body Jewelry’s gold suppliers are also RJC Certified. The RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council) is an international body, headquartered in London, that certifies fine jewelry product manufacturers and suppliers for responsible ethical, social, and environmental practices throughout their operations. Certification and membership requires an independent third party audit covering all aspects of operations, from our supply chain and production to business ethics and employee health and safety.
Members must meet RJC’s Code of Practices which respects human rights throughout the jewelry supply chain for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals. RJC members commit to implementing continuous improvement processes to increase performance and achieve higher standards.
BiBi Body Jewelry is committed to selling only conflict-free and ethically sourced diamonds. We believe it is completely unacceptable to tolerate conflict diamonds and/or human suffering in any way, therefore all the diamonds we purchase comply with the Kimberley Process.
The Kimberly Process ensures all rough diamonds are:
- Exported and imported with a government-validated certificate stating the diamonds are conflict-free.
- Transported between signatory countries in a sealed, tamper-proof container.
- Sold with a statement from the seller on all invoices guaranteeing the diamonds sold are conflict-free.
Finally, all of BiBi Body Jewelry’s diamond suppliers belong to the Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association of America (DMIA), which upholds the highest ethical standards in the diamond industry, including the Kimberley Process.
Ethically Sourced Gemstones
BiBi Body Jewelry only purchases gemstones from members of the American Gem Trade Association, which requires its members to uphold the highest ethical standards in their business practices, and the American Gem Society, which is dedicated to both consumer protection and ethical business practices.
BiBi Body Jewelry’s gemstone suppliers use strict policies when sourcing their stones. Their in-house experts frequently visit their suppliers to ensure that they maintain socially responsible practices and comply with the US Patriot Act.
BiBi Body Jewelry believes in creating an open dialogue about gemstone sourcing to be as transparent and trustworthy as possible. We work with trusted partners, who visit their suppliers and cutters overseas to ensure proper procedures are being followed, and transparently disclose any treatment our stones have undergone, and maintain the utmost humanitarian and environmental standards.
