FAIREST OF THEM ALL
In news to cheer environmentally minded magpies everywhere, Chopard recently announced that from now on all of its jewellery and watches will be produced in 100 per cent responsibly sourced gold. It’s the latest and most significant step in the brand’s long-running ‘journey to sustainable luxury’, and throws down the gauntlet to other luxury houses. Chopard’s work to help more mines become Fair mined certified will also increase supplies for the rest of the industry – good news for everyone.
