(PRESS RELEASE) CHICAGO, IL – M. Geller Ltd. announced that the company has achieved Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) certification. The certificate is issued for a 3-year period beginning June 2019.

The RJC is an international organization that helps companies throughout the jewelry supply chain meet the ethical demands imposed by consumers, financial institutions, peers and civil society. RJC’s code of practices gives companies a pathway to achieve sustainable best practices. Certification under the RJC system demonstrates that the member’s business practices conform to RJC’s Code of Practices for business ethics, human rights, social and environmental performance.

“Since our beginning 35 years ago, M. Geller has had its own code of responsible business practices which dictates what we expect from ourselves and our suppliers regarding human rights, child labor, the environment, safety, and full transparency”, stated Marc Geller, president of M. Geller Ltd. “Certification by the RJC is indicative of our unwavering commitment to responsible sourcing and sustainability”, continued Geller, “and we are fully supportive of RJC’s vision of a responsible world-wide supply chain that promotes trust and accountability.”

To receive certification, a company must undergo an independent audit of their systems and business practices relative to RJC’s Code of Practices. The RJC is comprised of over 1,100 organizations that span the supply chain from mine to retail and who are committed to advancing responsible jewelry practices. “We are honored to join the ranks of fellow RJC members,” noted Geller.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
