(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 Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
