Evelyne JOLY-POTTUZ
Responsible Achat (MATY)

It was mid 1987 when I first visited the SEEPZ in ( that time still ) Bombay and met with a few companies who had started their production there.

Amongst the ones I visited was Fine, who was in the very first stage of building a new export business beside the United States.
I remember that at Fine there wasn’t anything like a sample line then, all had to be “judged and chosen ” from waxes or metal moulds and all were packed in brown paper bags.Nevertheless I saw a company that had the potential and will to be one of my suppliers and now after more than 30 years of working together I can say that they succeeded.

Over the years I have seen many companies coming and also going but Fine managed to stay and improve year by year. It had cost us both blood , sweat and tears ( and not to forget money ) but I am glad to say that I am still a happy customer.
With the young generation coming into the company a few years ago it became a new and fresh “boost “. They are always on the search for innovation; not only in the technique but also in design and marketing.
“Fine makes fine jewellery” and I hope they will for a long time.

SUPPLIER RESPONSIBILITY

Everything matters to us.

We believe that responsible business practices and our aspiration to offer innovative, quality jewellery go hand in hand. That is why we are committed to developing and manufacturing jewellery in a responsible manner, while providing a great environment to work in, and working towards ensuring all of our materials originate from legitimate verifiable sources.

Our goal is to maintain ethical standards within human and labour rights, safe working conditions and environmental impact, as well as fair and honest business practices.

Our modern manufacturing facility of 45,000 sq ft provides safe working conditions to the more than 900 people engaged in crafting our jewellery.

Continuous investment in new technology, machinery and skill upgradation of craftsmen, are the basis for ongoing improvement of product quality.

Our craftspeople are offered competitive wages and benefit packages that include subsidised meals and bus transport, scholarships, extra holidays, sporting activities and social events.

We work towards ensuring that materials procured and supplied by us are compliant with applicable international regulations governing their trade or use.

All diamonds procured by us are compliant with the Kimberley process regulations under United Nations General Assembly Resolution 55/56, which ensures that the diamonds originate from legitimate sources and are not used to fund conflict.

All gold procured by us originated from legitimate sources and is certified conflict free. We recognise the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Responsible Gold Guidance, and the DMCC “Dubai Good Delivery” list for gold as a core reference for supplies of gold from refineries.

All jewellery supplied by us is compliant with The European Union Nickel directive EN 1811:2011 + A1:2015, which limits the amount of nickel that can be used in articles of jewellery, this is essential for limiting the possible effects of direct and prolonged contact with the skin from articles of containing nickel.

Our manufacturing facility is certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), a standards setting and certification organization. As a certified RJC member we are committed to and are independently audited towards the RJC Code of Practices – an international standard on responsible business practices for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals.
