Our 2030 strategic direction outlines a clear focus in our Product pillar, with the aim that 100% of our products will be sustainable, responsible, or circular.
To achieve this goal, three key areas of focus are pivotal – Product Transparency, Metal Stewardship, and Innovation.
100% use of certified sustainable or responsibly sourced natural diamonds, coloured gemstones and cultured pearls
100% of Michael Hill’s silver and gold products will be made from certified recycled, responsibly sourced, local or artisanal sources
We will pioneer an innovation hub to champion and integrate jewellery circularity, product innovation and Laboratory created diamonds

We continue to explore new materials, innovative processes and the latest technologies that are shaping and evolving the jewellery industry towards a more sustainable and ethically responsible future, whilst continuing to provide the quality of jewellery that our customers trust us to create.

Michael Hill is committed to offering only conflict-free diamonds in our jewellery.
We purchase diamonds from legitimate sources in accordance with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) as supported by the World Diamond Council System of Warranties. As part of our business practices and supply agreements, we require diamond suppliers to warrant that the diamonds are conflict-free.
The KPCS is a joint government, international diamond industry and civil society initiative to prevent conflict diamonds from entering the supply chain.

We are proud to be an accredited retailer of Certified Sustainability Rated Laboratory-Created Diamonds; in accordance with the SCS-007 Jewelry Sustainability Standard Series – Sustainability Rated Diamond from SCS Global Services.
The laboratory-created diamonds available at Michael Hill are certified sustainable, climate neutral, and meet the highest level of ethical and environmental responsibility.
Introducing Diamonds with the De Beers Code of Origin
We are proud to carry a range of diamonds from the De Beers Code of Origin Trusted Source Program. The Code of Origin is a customised code unique to your diamond, which provides assurance that it is natural and conflict-free, and was discovered by De Beers in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa or Canada.
The range of diamonds with the De Beers Code of Origin available at Michael Hill are crafted into a stunning capsule of Michael Hill Solitaire rings made in Australia.
Made in Australia
Local craftsmanship is one of the founding pillars in the heritage of our business, and we are dedicated to keeping manufacturing industries alive in the markets we operate where possible.
Pieces from several of our exclusive Bridal Collections, as well as select fashion styles, are crafted in our in-house Australian workshop.
From the initial design and 3D-printed resin mould, to the gold casting, diamond sorting and setting, polishing and engraving – bringing our beautiful Made in Australia pieces to life is completed at our in-house workshop in Brisbane, Australia.
Michael Hill first established an in-house workshop in the 1980s, and we are one of the very few jewellers to maintain a retail-led working workshop to this day, having a dedicated team of master craftsmen, diamond specialists and quality control professionals.
Made in NZ
A number of our chain necklaces and bracelets, as well as our most-loved round and oval solid bangles, are crafted for quality and beauty by our New Zealand supplier, Morris and Watson.
Morris and Watson is a fourth generation family business, dedicated to providing beautiful jewellery with quality and fineness. Morris and Watson is also a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council.
