Chain of Custody 2017

Confidence from end-to-end

Transparency and trust go hand in hand in the jewellery and watch industry. RJC Chain of Custody certification gives your customers and suppliers the assurance they need about how your products and materials have been sourced, traced, and processed through the supply chain.

Our Chain of Custody certification provides you with a guarantee of the integrity of your products and materials – allowing you to tell the complete story about how they were sourced, traced and processed, from mine to retail. This certification is voluntary for RJC members.
