Our diamonds certifications

GIA & HRD Certificates

Chopard entrusts its diamonds to two independent laboratories: the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the Hoge Raad voor Diamant (HRD). To receive its numbered certificate, each stone is studied by several gemmologists who verify the diamond’s authenticity and evaluate all of the stone’s characteristics in a non-biased manner. In addition, each Chopard piece of jewelry also comes with a certificate of origin, guaranteeing the piece is a genuine Chopard original.

Chopard Ethical Commitment

Responsible Jewellery Council Certification (RJC)

Chopard operates with the utmost respect for its customers and employees. True to this cornerstone value, the company joined the RJC – Responsible Jewelry Council – in 2010. The mission of this non-profit organization is to promote human rights and see to it that ethical, social and environmentally responsible practices are applied by all those involved in the jewelry industry’s supply and production chain.

The Kimberley Process

As a certified member of the RJC, the Maison supports the Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council, two organizations working to eliminate all trade in conflict-zone diamonds. To actively support them, Chopard has implemented a system of self-regulation for all its suppliers, requesting they not buy or sell conflict diamonds and encouraging them not to purchase stones from unknown sources. As such, each jewelry creation from the Chopard workshops comes with a certificate guaranteeing its origin.
