Corporate Responsibility: Message from our CEO

At Hyde Park, our goal is to be the world’s most respected jeweler—respected for our wide selection of designer jewelry and fine timepieces, the beauty and quality of our in-house designs, the excellence of our customer service and for our commitment to ethical and sustainable business practices. Our position as a leader in the luxury jewelry retail market provides us both the opportunity and the responsibility to set an example for the industry and conduct our business in a manner that is consistent with our core beliefs—protection of the environment, respect for human rights and support for the communities in which we do business. Most critically, we believe our commitment in all these areas is not only the right thing to do; it is the smart thing to do and a critical component of our continuing success.
 
To that end, we will only conduct business with suppliers that support higher standards for responsible mining practices and adhere to the guidelines set out by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) and the US Patriot Act.
 
Our sustainability efforts extend beyond our selection of jewelry, watches and gemstones that support responsible and ethical manufacturing practices. We work continuously to improve the sustainability of our boxes, bags and various publications and collateral materials by increasing the use of recycled content and FSC-certified sources.
 
We recognize that our employees are central to our success, and we are committed to treating each other with dignity and respect.
 
We also know that we have a responsibility that extends to our business partners to encourage them to share our commitment to ethical and sustainable business practices.
 
To support local communities in our markets, Hyde Park continues a long tradition of supporting charitable organizations through our Diamonds in the Rough Foundation.
 
We are proud of our accomplishments in all of these areas and of our role as a leader in responsible luxury. And we know that there is much work yet to be done. I invite you to review the website and learn about our social and environmental challenges and accomplishments.
 
Michael Pollak
