CIBJO Introduces Redesigned Logo and Website for the World Jewellery Confederation

(PRESS RELEASE)MILAN, ITALY — It is the still the longest serving and most representative international association operating in the world’s jewellery and gem industry, but after 30 years the World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) is upgrading its outward appearance, adopting a new logo and launching a redesigned website.

In a subtle way, the association’s name has been adjusted as well, with “The World Jewellery Confederation” being emphasized more to describe its industry role and function, although its famous acronym CIBJO (derived from the French “Confédération International de la Bijouterie, Joaillerie, Orfèvrerie des Diamants, Perles et Pierres”) has not been retired.

“While we have been the anchor of the industry for decades, and indeed will be celebrating our centenary in 2026, the changes in the jewelry business over the past several years have greatly expanded our role, relevance and areas of responsibility, raising our profile higher than it ever has been before,” explained World Jewellery Confederation President Gaetano Cavalieri. “Our authority and longevity has always been vested in our broad membership, covering both the world and all industry sectors, but also our ability to evolve with the business. It was thus clear that a visual makeover was necessary, emphasizing what we are today, and where we will be tomorrow.”

The new logo that replaces the iconic CIBJO orb with its three gold rings, is reminiscent of the globe-like symbol that preceded it, but it is more futuristic and also evocative of a faceted gemstone or a piece of jewelry. Four colored squares on the left-hand side of the logo pay tribute to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, to which the World Jewellery Confederation is committed.

The redesigned website, located here is first and foremost functional, providing users easy access to information, as well as to downloadable products and services provided to jewelry industry members, almost all of them free of charge.

The website is divided into five section, three of which focus on the World Jewellery Confederation’s key areas of responsibility, namely the creation of industry standards, ethics and sustainability, and industry education. Each section contains a resource section, facilitating the downloading of relevant products and services. The fourth section focuses on the World Jewellery Confederation and membership, and the fifth section covers news and media.

“We have always been a proponent of transparency in the jewelry industry, believing it to be a requirement for maintaining the integrity of product, supply chain and members,” said Dr. Cavalieri. “The same is true for industry associations, not least of all the World Jewellery Confederation. That is what we have set out to achieve with our upgraded website.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
