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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
