ETHICAL JEWELLERY,
MAZARIN PARIS

ETHICAL JEWELLERY

MAZARIN is convinced that beauty and ethics can coexist harmoniously, that the oxymorons of yesterday and tomorrow can be reconciled by creating contemporary and iconic jewellery.

Hand in hand with nature

Committed to ethical sourcing of our materials

MAZARIN is committed to ensuring that jewellery remains timeless and works to preserve its promising future. As creators, gemologists, and historians of jewellery, we know that natural resources are depleting and unacceptable sourcing methods persist too often. This is why we use either high-quality, environmentally friendly 21st-century resources such as synthetic diamonds or resources that have already been extracted and reincarnated in our creations, like recycled gold.

At MAZARIN, we believe that jewellery can and must become more ethical and aware of its footprints if it wishes to continue its dream of eternity. And it starts here, now, with our creations.


Our recycled ethical gold

Gold is a material that can be recycled infinitely without any of its qualities deteriorating. The MAZARIN collections use exclusively recycled gold, from objects previously appraised and then melted into pure 24-carat gold ingots. This choice contributes to taking action to protect the planet....

Our diamonds created by human genius

To avoid contributing further to depleting our planet's resources or indirectly supporting conflicts, MAZARIN favors the highest quality laboratory diamonds designed with an awareness of working conditions, with vigilance of the energy consumed......

Our subjects of memory or innovation traced

To reduce our environmental footprint and enhance what already exists, our sourcing focuses on materials already extracted to which our creations could give a second life. This approach gives them a unique heritage value......

HAND IN HAND WITH KNOW-HOW AND SKILLS

COMMITTING TO PROMOTING A HUMANISTIC KNOW-HOW CELEBRATING THE KNOWLEDGE OF YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW


[1] OUR SIGNATURE VALUES

Ethics reflect the values and convictions of a Maison. It is expressed through singular choices on environmental, social, and societal issues that we call our signature values.

At MAZARIN, we have chosen to focus on a selection of materials that reflect our environmental convictions, as well as issues of gender equality, a non-normative vision of gender, and principles of fair remuneration throughout the subcontracting chain. We are mobilised wherever our jewellery allows us to create positive impacts on communities and where our convictions lead us.

[2] A managerial duo open to otherness and cultures

Louise de Rothschild and Keagan Ramsamy met when they joined the auction house Pierre Bergé & Associés. While they share a passion for gemmology and the history of jewellery, their friendly complicity is nurtured by their complementarities.

Starting with their respective cultures which, between the West and the East, balance in a fruitful exchange. It was this very exchange that led them to create MAZARIN.

[3] An awareness of the world and our role from ideation to execution of our jewellery

The design of MAZARIN jewellery is rooted in a desire for meaning. This is why we have chosen the elephant as our totem.


A symbol of power and temperance in the West, strength and power in Africa, knowledge and wisdom in Hindu mythology, strength and intelligence in China, the elephant is present in all cultures.


In all its power and fragility, MAZARIN has made the elephant its totem. MAZARIN donates 10% of sales from the LUCKY ELEPHANT collection and each MEMORY CHARM BRACELET to the Big Life Foundation, a non-profit organisation that, in partnership with local communities, works to preserve the ecosystem of 160,000 hectares of wildlands in East Africa.

MAZARIN chooses its partners for jewellery collections not only based on excellence but also on ensuring fair remuneration. At our level, we contribute to promoting inclusive practices that favour accessibility and the promotion of skills without gender discrimination.

[4] YOUR GENDER-NEUTRAL JEWELLERY

MAZARIN's creations and communication reflect the conviction that beauty is not defined by gender. Each of our pieces is designed to be an expression of self, whether one is a man, a woman, or non-binary. Our communication reflects this belief, celebrating feminine jewellery worn by men as well as women.


[5] OUR SKILLS OF EXCELLENCE

Whether it is for our rings, necklaces, cuffs, or earrings, our MAZARIN collections come to life just steps from Place Vendôme, within the Maison's workshops. Drawing then prototyping precedes the work on gold (casting, sculpting, polishing, sandblasting...) and finally the setting, chosen according to each creation: mass setting to lodge the diamond in the folds of sculpted gold, eagle's beak setting to amplify the fires of a solitaire, or pavé setting to illuminate a surface.


MAZARIN favours made in France and consistency throughout its subcontracting chain. Since 95% of diamonds are cut in India, MAZARIN partners with the most highly certified Indian synthetic diamond actors.



HAND IN HAND TO ENLIGHTEN YOUR CHOICES

COMMITTING TO ALLOWING YOU TO MAKE A CONSCIOUS CHOICE

There is no definition of ethical jewellery, as the ethics of a Maison are unique and specific to its reason for being and acting and the environmental, social, and societal impacts it wishes to prioritise during the design, creation, and production of pieces.

However, certain certifications provide guarantees on Environmental, Social, and Governance criteria, and we incorporate these criteria into our responsible sourcing strategy.




HAND IN HAND FOR MEANINGFUL JEWELLERY

COMMITTING TO ENDOWING JEWELLERY WITH EXTRA SOUL

Meaning for us revolves around five major commitments which are the pillars of our responsible purchasing strategy.



[1] PRIORITISING NATURAL MATERIALS

We commit to favouring already extracted raw materials by recycling or upcycling them to reduce the environmental impact of our sourcing. For example, we support the use of gold and gemstones from certified ethical sources.
