We’re on a mission to redefine luxury while working towards making a positive impact.

As we’ve grown, we’re ready to take on even more accountability with our first Sustainability Report.

Our continued work centers on three pillars of sustainability: product, planet, and people.

PRODUCT

We believe that the concept of ‘fine jewelry’ goes beyond craftsmanship and style. It’s also about the responsible supply chain that sources our precious materials, and the respectful partnerships that help bring our jewelry to life.

Manufacturing

Suppliers Map

We prioritize working with suppliers independently certified by recognized standards-setting organizations, with a focus on health and safety, human rights, fair labor, governance, and environmental protection. 

We’re committed to expanding transparency about our trusted supplier networks, to help ensure we continue to create a positive impact through the manufacturing of our fine jewelry.

Longevity & Circularity

Our products are built to last. This inherent longevity not only provides our consumers with more value but also helps increase circularity by reducing waste.

But true circularity in our industry entails more than durable products.

Here’s how we've gone a step further over the past few years:

Recycling Product

Bringing returned or defective products to large-scale recyclers to minimize waste in our operations

Reducing Single-Use Plastics

Collecting what was once waste and shipping it to our specialized recycling partners through our Poly Bag Recycling Program 

Code of Conduct

Revising our Code of Conduct to cover even more pressing concerns around international labor

Responsible Material Sourcing

We strike a balance between using recycled precious materials in our jewelry and using responsible, newly-mined materials that support and empower communities dependent on the jewelry industry. Recycled gold represents the largest area for positive impact across our supply chain.

PLANET

At Mejuri, our aim is to bring beauty into the world rather than take it away. Hence, why we believe in preserving the natural beauty of our planet for future generations to enjoy. 

We're proud Founding Partners and the exclusive jewelry sector partner of Regeneration, a revolutionary re-mining initiative dedicated to the rehabilitation of legacy mining sites and the restoration of surrounding natural environments.

Restoring the

Environment

Hundreds of thousands of abandoned mines, deemed “legacy mines,” exist around the world. If left untreated, some legacy mines pollute sensitive watersheds, ecosystems, and native species. 

Regeneration is a revolutionary new start-up that uses the re-mining and processing of waste from legacy mine sites to support rehabilitation activities and restore natural environments.

Founded by RESOLVE, a Washington DC-based NGO with a proud history of endangered species recovery in the mining space, Regeneration re-mining will have important ecological benefits for our world—all while producing efficiently-mined minerals.

Reducing our emissions

As a company, we’re moving from reactive to proactive, teaming up with third-party consultants to identify key areas of opportunity and executing accordingly.

Typically, as a business grows, so does its greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint. We’ve set out to defy that pattern.

By increasing the amount of recycled gold and silver we use, we’ve reduced our carbon intensity*—even considering significant revenue growth.

*Calculated year-over-year (GHG emissions divided by net revenue)

As part of our ongoing journey towards carbon neutrality, we will replace carbon offsets by prioritizing purchasing clean energy and renewable energy credits (RECs).

PEOPLE

We’re tailoring our approach to supporting our people and communities to be more inclusive and action-oriented than ever.

charitable initiatives

The purpose of our commitments is to create deep, long-standing relationships with communities and have a measurable impact over time.

By supporting women and non-binary people's access to skills through traditional or non-traditional education, we believe that they will have more power to design the life they want.

A Year of Action

The overturning of Roe v. Wade presents an unprecedented rollback of reproductive rights and marks a direct attack on our team—77% of whom identify as women and 36% who are based in the U.S.*

We partnered with Don’t Ban Equality, a coalition of nonprofits (including Planned Parenthood, Federation of America, and American Civil Liberties Union), to form a committee of like-minded brands using our voice and reach to help protect access to reproductive healthcare and advocate for equal rights.

Our internal culture is fostered through key listening programs that allow the entire organization to provide feedback on their employee experience.

Quarterly Engagement Surveys

Four times a year, we ask for feedback from our employees through anonymous engagement surveys. We’ve maintained over 75% engagement* on these surveys since introducing them in 2019, and we continue to see high ratings in areas like strong management, diversity and belonging, company purpose, and role expectations.

Tailored Guidance

Through yearly offsites, leadership coaching, and 360 performance reviews twice a year, we aim to provide clear, actionable feedback and development so our team members can continue growing into new opportunities.

Mejuri ID

Formed in 2020, Mejuri ID is an employee-led committee aimed at acknowledging, celebrating, and educating about diversity in all its forms. 

The committee supports the company in running internal special events and communications throughout the year, as well as informing our retail stores of opportunities to bring awareness to diversity.

FAQ

Sustainable jewelry is a term given to pieces and providers that encourage responsible processes throughout fine jewelry creation. We believe that the concept of ‘fine jewelry’ goes beyond craftsmanship and style. It’s also about the responsible supply chain that sources our precious materials, and the respectful partnerships that help bring our jewelry to life. Our products are built to last. This inherent longevity not only provides our consumers with more value but also helps increase circularity by reducing waste. 

From using conflict-free materials to recycled gold and silver, sustainable jewelry aims to promote a more responsible industry in a healthier environment. Sustainable jewelry also aims to avoid controversial intermediary processes that exploit workers and make parts of the industry dangerous to work in. Using recycled materials and traceable sources uphold Mejuri’s goal of providing sustainable jewelry.

Our trusted partners only use Kimberley Process-compliant diamonds, a system aimed at reducing the flow of conflict rough diamonds.This process has promoted a trading environment for member countries that exclusively trade with other Kimberley Process members.

Recycled gold is found in many places including old, unused, or discarded jewelry pieces and in electronic waste. The more gold we can recycle and inject into the industry, the better the industry—and the planet—will be. There is no difference in quality between recycled and newly-mined gold. With recycled gold, you get the same beautiful shine, with the addition of increased circularity and reduced waste. As a solid element, gold never degrades or loses its integrity, so it looks and feels the same no matter how many times it's recycled. Since 14k gold products make up the majority of our revenue, attaining 95% recycled gold in 2022 represents the largest area for positive impact across our supply chain.

The key ways Mejuri intends to garner the future of sustainable jewelry are through increasing traceability throughout each step of the sourcing, manufacturing, and delivery processes, as well as through regenerative mining.

By increasing traceability, we can encourage a sourcing and trading environment that promotes more responsible processes and practices. The market also faces new strategies to help perpetuate sustainability, such as recycled plastics, and environmentally-friendly packaging techniques.

Mejuri is a proud Founding Partner and the exclusive jewelry sector partner of Regeneration Enterprises. Regeneration is a revolutionary new start-up that uses the re-mining and processing of waste from legacy mine sites to support rehabilitation activities and restore natural environments. Founded by RESOLVE, a Washington DC-based NGO with a proud history of endangered species recovery in the mining space, Regeneration re-mining will have important ecological benefits for our world—all while producing efficiently-mined minerals. 

Through the efforts of Regeneration, we are supporting the repair of habitats and biodiversity while collecting important minerals for use in our products as well as future renewable energy projects. In addition, Regeneration will seek to create and trade biodiversity and carbon credits through the rehabilitation of land and the generation of environmental offsets.

Established in 2005, the RJC is a non-profit encouraging responsible practices throughout the jewelry supply chain. The RJC audits companies for compliance that can then become certified as responsible businesses. Audits are performed on company policy, human and labor rights, environmental impact, and product disclosure. The RJC is significant for the fine jewelry industry because it creates a safer, cleaner environment for workers, products, and customers alike. 

We only work with suppliers who meet our standards. These include RJC certified suppliers as well as a few smaller suppliers. We work hand in hand with smaller players as they improve their sustainability processes.

A helpful analogy might be sustainable food consumption. People can purchase organic-certified foods, but we know that organic certification is most accessible to major producers. People can also purchase from local family farms that are key parts of the community and grow healthy produce with minimal inputs. Most conscious consumers do a mix of both.

We’re in the process of getting certified with Positive Luxury, which covers a bit broader than the jewelry industry standards but provides a strong framework for luxury companies to operate sustainably, and goes above and beyond the RJC.

In 2023, we launched our new Poly Bag Recycling Program. Bags made out of poly, a material that you can’t recycle at the local municipal level, are the standard method of product transport across the entire jewelry industry. These bags had nowhere to go besides landfills—until now. 

Mejuri is assuming the costs of collecting poly bags to be recycled. Soon we’ll have recycling available at retail stores and warehouses in order to keep them out of municipal waste. This is a massive step toward eliminating single-use plastic in our operations, and it’s worth every penny. 

We’ve also worked hard to ensure our packaging is fully recyclable. In 2019, we introduced reusable cotton bags, and in 2021, we introduced a ‘reduced packaging’ option for all online purchases. In the future, we plan on featuring FSC certified materials in our packaging.

Both are important. When you’re dealing with a complex, historically opaque supply chain like jewelry, it’s helpful to have multiple intervention points. We have made great progress reducing emissions that we directly control. There’s also a lot we don’t control across the production of our jewelry, and reducing those emissions takes much longer and is much more complicated. Purchasing renewable credits is something we can do in the short term that has real positive and proactive impact by investing in renewable sources of energy. We continue to work with our suppliers to reduce their emissions and improve our processes.
