Human RightsAt Temple St. Clair, we are guided by our commitment to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) as put forth by the United Nations General Assembly.
It all starts at home. At our offices and studio in New York City, we are committed to providing a workplace that upholds human rights regarding safe, fair and non-discriminatory practices and conditions. We have always embraced and enjoyed a diverse team, and each Temple St. Clair employee is given a mandate to integrate these best practices within the framework of every individual’s job responsibilities.
We have worked with many of our sourcing and manufacturing partners in the US and across the globe for years, if not decades. We actively communicate to all our business partners, old and new, our expectation that at every touch point full human rights policies and responsible practices are adhered to, including unjust labor practices, from forced labor to human trafficking. As jewelers, we must pay exacting attention to the process of identifying precious metal and gemstone vendors who demonstrate a verifiable commitment to a transparent supply chain that respects human rights and responsible environmental practices.
