Benefits of RJC Membership and Certification

With today’s increasingly conscientious consumer, businesses down the jewellery supply chain are making efforts to ensure they operate as transparently as possible. Having a tangible and ethical approach to business speaks to the concerns of a key audience which generates consumer trust and makes them more likely to return and to make referrals. Considering the jewellery industry as a whole, responsible and ethical business practices create a community of confidence both within businesses, and between suppliers and customers. As well as giving businesses confidence in themselves, RJC membership and certification is a demonstrable outward sign of an internal commitment to responsible business practices.
