At Cattivo, we believe that the foundation of our jewelry brand and services are our values, which distinguish us from others and guide our actions. Over the years, we have been committed to creating jewelry ethically and responsibly.
Early 2022, We are proud to announce that Cattivo Jewelry (in the name of our factory, Guangzhoy Tianyue Jewelry Co., Ltd.) has been officially certified as a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council.
The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) is an international not-for-profit association with more than 1,200 members from mining to retail. By following good social and environmental practices in complete transparency along the entire production chain, members of the RJC uphold ethics, human rights and the environment. The purpose of this commitment is to provide consumers with credible guarantees of product quality and ethical behavior.
For us at Cattivo jewelry, it is more important than ever to embrace sustainability, both to set an example for others, but also to create a long-lasting positive impact on the lives of those affected as well as the greater community where we operate. Using the RJC Code of Practices is a continuous improvement process that also allows us to educate our stakeholders and promote responsible practices in all areas.
Cattivo is one of the few jewelry companies in the industries that have completed the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA in short), the most widely used social audits in the world. By assessing business based on 4 key pillars, including labor standard, health and safety, environment and business ethics, SMETA evaluates whether a business’ is adopting responsible business practices and meeting social compliance. The successful audit demonstrates our dedication to ethical and responsible jewelry business practices, including transparent sourcing of raw materials, safe working environments, fair wages for workers, no child labour, and much more.
Packaging is a vital part of the industry, but it does not need longevity like jewelry. We are taking further steps by choosing the Biodegradable d2w Technology, which accelerates the natural process of oxidation when it is no longer in use, leaving the environment with no toxic residues and microplastics. We believe that continuing to improve the packaging of jewelry will help protect our planet for good.
Every step in the journey of our production impact the well-being of our planet. Rarely known by the public, jewelry production will create unwanted side-products – fume and wastewater. Therefore, our production facility is taking a step further by installing a fume extraction system and sewage treatment plant for the good sake of protecting the environment and our Earth.
Not a single piece of the metal strap would be wasted in our production facility. By utilising our manufacturing know-how, we produce jewelry that is made from 100% recycled silver. For instance, the metal scraps produced during the treeing process will be recycled back into the system for making other exquisite pieces of jewelry.
By choosing Cattivo, you are making your choice to respect people and our planet.
