F. Hinds is the first jeweller in the UK to be confirmed as meeting the high standards of expertise, ethics and professionalism required by the leading international diamond governing body the World Federation of Diamond Bourses. They have bestowed the prestigious ‘World Diamond Mark’ (WDM) and seal as an Authorised Diamond Dealer on the long-established family retailer. This recognises their expertise and status as the leading UK high street retailer of natural diamonds.
One of the most romantic and important events of a couple’s life together is selecting that special diamond ring; a moment that will be remembered for a lifetime, and it’s vital to be confident in the diamond’s quality, provenance and authenticity.
Alongside the company’s certification by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), the WDM helps F. Hinds to reinforce customer confidence in rare, natural diamonds. This includes only using certificates from accurate, stringent laboratories, high quality training for store staff, plus the knowledge that gemologist and sixth generation family member Andrew Hinds personally hand-selects all the diamonds for the company’s certificated solitaires. F. Hinds was also the first UK sponsor of the Diamond Development Initiative which supports artisanal workers in developing countries.
