The government body is seeking answers to 75 questions.

In response to a request from the Jewelers Vigilance Committee, the Federal Trade Commission has extended the deadline for submitting public comments on proposed amendments to its Jewelry Guides, according to a release from the FTC. The new deadline is June 3.

The Jewelry Guides explain to businesses how to avoid making deceptive claims about precious metal, pewter, diamond, gemstone and pearl products, including what types of disclosures are needed.

The latest proposals from the FTC includes a list of 75 questions to which the FTC has requested answers. This information could inform the FTC’s decision on changes to the Jewelry Guides, a release from the JVC explains. The process of revising the Guides began in 2012 with trade associations filing their first suggested changes, and has included two rounds of written submissions by a coalition of industry associations. Hundreds of industry members have also separately filed comments, the JVC release added.

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.
