The Taché Story
For the love of diamonds
We’re proud to be one of De Beer’s oldest sightholders. Our commitment and passion has made us the preferred partner for many other well-known names as well.
Befitting a stone formed over millennia, we take a long-term approach to growth.
So we intend to grow in two main ways: a) by acquiring companies that will provide us with a competitive edge and enable us to grow and evolve our position in the marketplace;
And b) by providing innovative services that our clients desire – or don’t yet know of their existence in the marketplace.
Pushing boundaries is in our DNA.
Integrity is earned. We intend to continue earning it.
We guarantee that all of our diamonds are ethically sourced, contain no synthetics, and are responsibly manufactured in and from conflict-free countries.
- Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC)
- Kimberley Process (KP)
- Best Practice Principles (BPP)
Taché is a member of the RJC - certification number 0000 0038. Along with the council’s other affiliates, we are committed to responsible and ethical human rights, social, and environmental practices from mine to retail. RJC’s members aim to reinforce consumer and stakeholder confidence in jewellery products.
At Taché, we strictly adhere to the principles of the Kimberley Process. We guarantee our customers that all of our diamonds, whether rough or polished diamonds, are sourced from conflict-free areas. The Kimberly Process is an agreement between 52 governments that controls the shipment of rough diamonds between countries. Under the KP, each shipment of rough diamonds that crosses an international border must be in a tamper-proof container and accompanied by a government issued certificate (the Kimberly Certificate) that confirms that the diamonds are from conflict-free sources. Rough diamonds can only be shipped between KP participating countries and no uncertified rough is permitted to enter a participant’s country.
The BPP is an independently audited (SGS) set of ethical policies introduced by De Beers. It lays out an ethical framework for the De Beers Group and its sight holders. The BPP covers a range of corporate and social responsibility issues, including the welfare of employees, business and financial reputation and consumer confidence. As a De Beers sight holder, Taché strictly adheres to the De Beers Best Practice Principles in both the diamond and jewellery industry. Complying with all international laws and agreements, such as the Kimberley Process, are fundamental to this process.
We feel a sense of deep commitment to the health and safety of our employees around the world. Equally, we go to great lengths to respect the communities and physical environments in which we operate.
We partner with various charitable organisations and are involved in numerous corporate social responsibility programs.
- Long-term commitments
All of our employees worldwide collectively contribute to the safekeeping of our environment by abiding to the environment clauses in our corporate social responsibility policies and industry ethics such as the RJC.
Positively contributing and impacting our host communities is an important part of our business. We contribute to people in our host communities through associations with organisations such as Tikvatenou (Belgium), Fondation Cartier (France), Liga de Multiple Scleroses (Belgium), Akanksha (India), among others.
Diamond Empowerment Fund: The Diamond Empowerment Fund is a non-profit international organisation, founded in 2007 by DEF JAM music mogul Russell Simmons. Its mission is to raise money to support education initiatives that develop and empower economically disadvantaged people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource. We are a proud contributor to the work of the Diamond Empowerment Fund. Jewellers For Children: Taché USA is a proud co-founder and yearly contributor to Jewellers For Children (JFC), our industry's only recognized national charitable organization.
