Valcambi is a world leader in the refining and manufacturing of precious metals. For nearly 60 years, they have refined and supplied gold, silver and platinum to professionals designing and crafting jewellery and objects that stand the test of time. Valcambi’s commitment to nurturing the natural world that inspires this work and provides these precious metals, is the foundation of its own pursuit of excellence. This is why Valcambi is at the forefront of promoting responsibly mined and sourced precious metals. With a special focus on artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM), they support miners in their efforts to adopt responsible labour, technical and environmental practices.
When a jeweller holds a nugget of fine gold, silver or platinum, Valcambi wants them to understand its origin and to feel its story. When craftsmen create a beautiful piece of jewellery, Valcambi wants them to know what shaped the life of the person who mined their precious metals. Through its partnership as a Principal Patron of the Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council (GC&DC), Valcambi supports the Council’s ambition - to encourage, stimulate and promote the pursuit of excellence in craftsmanship and design - putting the accent and emphasis on the origin of the natural resources professionals use.
