¹GOLD

MINTY USES ONLY ETHICALLY SOURCED MATERIALS. WE DO NOT ALLOW ANY MATERIALS TO ENTER OUR SUPPLY CHAIN IF THEY COME FROM NEW MINING OPERATIONS OR IF THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THEY WERE USED TO FINANCE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS. 

FOR THIS REASON, WE CHOOSE TO WORK WITH RECYCLED GOLD ONLY. WE BELIEVE THAT CHOOSING RECYCLED OVER NEWLY MINED GOLD WILL ALWAYS BE THE MORE SUSTAINABLE OPTION AS WE AVOID CAUSING MORE DAMAGE AND TOXIC IMPACT TO OUR ENVIRONMENT. 

OUR GOLD IS EXTRACTED FROM MATERIALS ALREADY IN CIRCULATION BY OUR TRUSTED SUPPLIERS AND HOLDS THE SAME VALUE AND QUALITY AS NEWLY MINED GOLD.

²CERAMIC

MATERIAL INNOVATION IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF MINTY’S DESIGN VISION. IN THE BID TO FIND ALTERNATIVES TO THE SCARCE NATURAL RESOURCES FROM OUR PLANET, OUR TEAM DISCOVERED A HIGHLY TECHNICAL AND ROBUST SOLUTION TO HOUSE THE DIAMONDS IN OUR PIECES.

MINTY USES A HIGH GRADE CERAMIC MATERIAL WHICH IS BOTH SHATTER AND SCRATCH-PROOF, IN PLACE OF TRADITIONAL BEZELS. THE BASE OF ZIRCONIUM IN THE CERAMIC RESULTS IN GLOSSY SURFACES, WHICH HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED IN A RANGE OF CONTRASTING COLOURS. EACH COMPONENT IS FINISHED BY HAND IN OUR EUROPEAN WORKSHOP. 

³DIAMONDS

MINTY WORKS ONLY WITH THE BEST IN CLASS “TYPE IIA” DIAMONDS.  MAKING UP LESS THAN 2% OF ALL DIAMONDS GLOBALLY, "TYPE IIA' DIAMONDS ARE THE MOST ATOMICALLY PURE DIAMONDS. THESE STONES LACK CHEMICAL IMPURITIES, RESULTING IN BRIGHTER AND HARDER STONES WHICH GIVES THEM THE COVETED WATERY TRANSPARENCY OF EXCEPTIONAL STONES.

SIMILARLY TO MINED DIAMONDS, NOT ALL LABORATORY GROWN DIAMONDS GROW TO PERFECTION. OFTEN, THESE ‘IMPERFECT’ STONES ARE SUBJECT TO POST GROWTH TREATMENTS OR RADIATION. AT MINTY, DIAMONDS UNDERGO NO FURTHER TREATMENTS POST GROWTH.

WE USE HIGH PRESSURE HIGH TEMPERATURE REACTORS TO MIMIC THE EARTH’S FORMULA FOR DIAMOND FORMATION - WITHOUT MINING OR CONFLICT.


OUR END PRODUCTS ARE “AS-GROWN” D-F COLOR AND VVS/VS1 CLARITY, MEANING THEY ARE COLORLESS IN QUALITY AND HAVE NEAR FLAWLESS CLARITY. 

⁴MINTY MISSION

MINTY CARES DEEPLY ABOUT OUR PLANET. OUR MISSION IS TO PUT PRODUCTS INTO THE WORLD NOT JUST FOR A FEW SEASONS, BUT THAT WILL BE CHERISHED FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. WE TAKE GREAT PRIDE AND CARE IN SOURCING OUR MATERIALS FROM REPUTABLE AND SUSTAINABLE PARTNERS, HOWEVER OUR EFFORTS ARE NOT YET PERFECT. THE JOURNEY TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY IS NOT SOLVED IN A SINGLE STEP, BUT RATHER IS ABOUT CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT IN PROCESSES AND TECHNOLOGIES. AT MINTY WE ARE COMMITTED TO CONTINUE EDUCATING OURSELVES AND TO PUSH OURSELVES AND OUR PARTNERS TOWARDS THE BEST PRACTICES AT OUR DISPOSAL.
