Quality, unique design, own identity….
Words that characterize Cardillac's jewelry.
Carla and Paul Steenbrink are the designers and goldsmiths of this collection with their own signature and with attention to detail and wearing comfort. This exclusive jewelry is available from a selected dealer network of goldsmiths and jewelers.
Experience the power of the creativity and craftsmanship Cardillac stands for.
Cardillac was founded in 1988 and is named after the goldsmith of the same name from the novel “Das Fräulein von Scuderi” by E. Hoffmann.
All the gold that we process is recycled gold (melted gold from, among other things, existing, bought-up jewelry, mobile phones and laptops). We obtain this from Schöne Precious Metals. Schöne has an international LBMA certification. So it is not about recently mined gold whose origin is uncertain.
Working with recycled gold has two major advantages: it guarantees no human rights are violated and nature is not burdened by mining activities.
We only work with diamonds that have received Kimberley certification after mining and are therefore guaranteed to be conflict-free. We have been purchasing our diamonds from the same, reliable diamond dealer for more than 20 years. He buys his diamonds from renowned diamond dealers in Antwerp who only trade Kimberley certified diamonds. A guarantee that the diamonds we use are legitimate and not involved in conflict financing, in accordance with UN resolutions.
