DDG and RJC development goals

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — In celebration of International Women’s Day, Diamonds Do Good and the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) are working together to advance industry action in support of the 17 Goals set out by the United Nations to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.

Diamonds Do Good launched a new sustainability section to its platform highlighting the 17 Goals. Under each goal will be curated stories of how industry members address each goal. The first goal featured with today’s launch will be Goal 5, ‘Gender Equality’.

The RJC provides the roadmap for the industry on how operationally to support these goals.
“We encourage sustainability at the heart of our members’ operations through the implementation of the Code of Practices, says Iris Van der Veken, RJC’s executive director. “The U.N.’s call to action provides impetus for this continuous journey”.

“Goal 17 encourages Partnerships,” says Rebecca Foerster, Diamonds Do Good’s president, “Collaborating with the RJC to promote sustainability in the industry is one of many partnerships we encourage moving forward”.

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
