BURMA: OUR POSITION

In accordance with our commitment to continuous improvement, in October 2007 Cartier stopped buying gemstones which may have been mined in Burma (Myanmar) - irrespective of where those stones have been cut and exported from - until further notice.

Cartier has issued instructions to this effect to its suppliers of colored gemstones, requesting that they confirm on all relevant shipments that the gemstones provided have not been mined in Burma.

Cartier conducts random gemological analyses on incoming gemstone shipments in order to evaluate the credibility of suppliers' claims as to the origin of the stones provided.
