Borsheims has long worked to ensure the integrity of the jewelry industry
world-wide. By working with suppliers, governments, regulating bodies and
other retailers, Borsheims has helped to bring strength and honesty to the
diamond and gemstone industry.
Borsheims has long been active in the supply chain of the gem and jewelry
industries. Borsheims mandates that all of our suppliers ensure their product
is from conflict-free sources and mined in the most ethical way possible.
You’ll find this guarantee on the back of every receipt.
Integrity in our industry has long been associated with Borsheims. During
her time at Borsheims, former President & CEO Susan Jacques was a key
player in the establishment of the Kimberley Process, a certification system
used to stem the flow of conflict diamonds. The Kimberley Process imposes
extensive requirements to certify all diamonds shipped through its participants
are conflict-free, meaning they have not been used to finance wars against
legitimate governments or have aided in human rights abuses.
All of the diamonds and gemstones sold at Borsheims have come through the
Kimberley Process. Borsheims requires its suppliers to sign agreements verifying
that the stones Borsheims purchases are conflict-free. Borsheims tells its customers
about this guarantee on the back of every sales receipt.
Borsheims is proud to help lead the way on conflict-free diamonds and gemstones
and will continue working to ensure the integrity of the jewelry industry.
Many gemstones are enhanced or treated to make them more beautiful,
stronger or clearer. In some stones, the treatments are commonplace.
At Borsheims, we believe our customers should be fully informed about the
stones they are purchasing. Borsheims sales associates will be able to detail
the treatments found on your particular stone. If you have any questions about
the treatment of gemstones, please contact one of our sales associates via
email or by calling (800) 642-GIFT.
In our 2006 store remodel, we took sustainability to new heights - literally!
Our two story glass entrance allows natural light to flood the store, reducing
the need for artificial lighting. Our display cases are made of wood from a
sustainable forest. We installed an ice-melt system under the sidewalks to
reduce the need for salt and sand during the slick winter months. And we
recycle all the boxes and packaging material we can. We even take back and
recycle our signature Borsheims boxes from customers!
