Join RJC

The RJC helps companies of all sizes, throughout the jewellery supply chain, meet the rising ethical demands of peers, consumers, financial institutions and civil society.

It does so by providing a clear set of standards – the RJC ‘Code of Practices’ – which is verified through a third party, independent, certification process. Adoption and adherence with the RJC’s Code of Practices presents a pathway for companies to address sustainability best practices and align with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. RJC is a gateway to sustainable growth for businesses.

RJC offers two types of Membership: Commercial Membership and Association Membership. For more information and to read about the eligibility criteria for each type of membership, please click below:

We are most proud to be the first RJC Member to achieve this important certification and we encourage others within the industry to follow suit so that they too can evidence responsible business practices. We are committed to improving industry standards and to supporting the RJC’s mission.
Claude Schlappi, Gay Frères, RJC Certified since November 2010.
From what we can see, Hamilton will be the first independent family-owned retailer to be certified, which we think is a nice achievement not only for us, but a significant one for the RJC. As you are no doubt aware, larger global firms have abundant resources to commit to compliance and certification, but it is a challenge for smaller independents to commit these resources. This should be a good statement for the RJC to show that a firm does not have to be a global brand to achieve certification.
Hank B. Siegel, Hamilton Jewelers, RJC Certified since December 2011.
Both the RJC and GIA share the commitment to safeguarding the public trust in gems and jewelry – GIA through laboratory services, education programs, research developments and disclosure; and the RJC in supporting standards of conduct that include human rights, social responsibility and environmental performance.
Donna Baker, Gemmological Institute of America (GIA), RJC Certified since December 2011.
Being able to produce a beautiful jewel, a fanciful jewel, a jewel with the right fineness is not enough anymore: we need to go further, by making and promoting an “ethical” jewel. Reaching an “ethical” objective is definitely not easy. Nevertheless, in comparison to many other businesses, our field has an important instrument at its disposal, a guide already laid  out: and I am of course referring to RJC standards. Thanks to RJC we have the possibility to today play a leading role in this process of change.
Licia Mattioli, Confindustria Federorafi, Member since May 2010.
