We Adhere to the Jewelers of America Code of Professional Practices
A condition of membership in Jewelers of America is a commitment to the Code of Professional Practices, and we strive to achieve these practices in our day-to-day business operations. We also encourage these practices within our spheres of influence – supply-chain relationships, the wider jewelry industry, and the world in which we operate.
We believe that gold should be processed in a way that respects people and the earth, and we support an end to the trade in conflict diamonds (diamonds mined in a war zone). We support the creation of standards to reduce ecological impacts of trade in precious corals.
