Jewelers of America, along with Beeghly and Company Jewelers, advocates high ethical, social and environmental standards in the diamond and jewelry trade and among its members.
Jewelers of America members must adhere to a Code of Professional Practices, which includes human rights, social and environmentally responsible business practices.
We believe a commitment to responsible diamonds must include suppliers, to ensure that responsible practices are addressed at every point in the supply chain. Without the engagement of all segments of our industry, retailers’ individual pledges to source responsibly will not be meaningful. With that in mind, we are working closely with a wide range of both industry and non-industry stakeholders (including the Responsible Jewellery Council* (RJC), the World Diamond Council (WDC), the Diamond Development Initiative (DDI), the U.S. Department of State and non-governmental organizations (NGOs)) to support good practices at every level of the diamond jewelry supply chain.
