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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
