(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.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
