(PRESS RELEASE) Korite, producer of gem-grade ammolite, announces its membership with the Responsible Jewellery Council.

The not-for-profit RJC sets international responsible business practices standards for the diamond, gold and platinum group metals jewelry supply chain from mine to retail. Members of RJC are required to follow the organization’s Code of Practices that address human rights, labor rights, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and other key topics in the jewelry supply chain.

As part of Korite’s commitment to RJC and to become a certified member, the company has started the certification process, which involves an independent third-party audit by accredited RJC auditors. To be certified, Korite will demonstrate that its company operations, business practices, and jewelry manufacturing facilities comply with the RJC’s Code of Practices. 

“We are excited to announce our membership with the Responsible Jewellery Council, to underscore our social responsibility commitments and lead the way as the world’s largest, most trusted source for ammolite,” says Jay Maull, president of Korite. “For more than 30 years, KORITE has demonstrated ethical and environmental stewardship, and this membership is the next step to ensure our company operations uphold the highest standards.

“Our business is based on fair, ethical and transparent practices, ensuring our products are sustainably and responsibly sourced. Achieving RJC certification will demonstrate KORITE’s continued efforts to lead the ammolite industry, providing a conflict-free product while improving and fostering responsible business practices.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
