(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.

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.
