Jewelers take responsibility

ALWAYS ONE STEP AHEAD

Every ring that leaves the egf Manufaktur receives an individual certificate confirming that each diamond comes exclusively from suppliers who have committed themselves to both the strict UN resolutions and the Kimberley Process and can also confirm this in writing.

With rings from your TRAURINGjuwelier, you can start your future together with us, a good feeling and will enjoy your unmistakable symbols of love for a lifetime. Because jewelry also means creating and preserving values.

After a comprehensive audit, egf Manufaktur received the RJC certificate in October 2016. And egf goes one step further than most jewelry and wedding ring manufacturers: It also fulfills the so-called Provenance Claim, which is not mandatory for RJC members.

All precious metals are sourced exclusively from companies that meet the product chain standard for gold and precious metals (RJC Chain-of-Custody) and have appropriate and verifiable certification. This formulates requirements for human rights, working conditions, environmental impact and ethical business practices along the entire supply chain for gold and precious metals.

EVERY RING IS UNIQUE

In the Pforzheim manufactory, wedding and engagement rings are handcrafted according to your ideas. Only the highest quality materials and diamonds from conflict-free sources are used. The top priority for every single ring is the high wearing comfort, which distinguishes the rings.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY PROJECTS

OUR VALUES

Under the leadership of Managing Director Stefan Schiffer, the existing values at egf were further developed in 2018 and 2019, in cooperation with the owner family as well as the entire workforce, and anchored as a „lived culture“. In addition, several workshops were held with all employees. The resulting values of responsibility, respect, quality, clarity and openness form the basis of today‘s cooperation.
