(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Royal Chain Group, a supplier of gold and precious metal jewelry, announced that it has joined the Responsible Jewellery Council. News of the membership comes at an especially significant time for the company as it celebrates its 40th anniversary. 

“This is an important milestone for us, reinforcing our dedication to the core values of trust, respect and transparency, and to ensure that our future generations will thrive,” said Paul Maroof, founder and President of the company. 

Maroof, who started the company in 1978 with his father, believes in investing in the future because his own son, Phillip Gabriel Maroof, remains an integral part of the Royal Chain management.  As part of the younger generation of jewelers and designers, Phillip Maroof has expressed a great interest in this topic, as the company looks to attract younger consumers to its brands and to be a pioneer in leading the effort for greater responsibility.

The Council for Responsible Jewellery Practices was formed in 2005 and later became known as the Responsible Jewellery Council in 2008. Their mission is “To advance responsible ethical, social and environmental practices, which respect human rights, throughout the diamond, gold and platinum group metals jewellery supply chain, from mine to retail.” Vendors and retailers that wish to become a member must first apply and then go through a six-step process that culminates in the awarding of a certificate if approved. RJC members commit to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices, which addresses human rights, labor rights, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and many more important topics in the jewelry supply chain. 

Royal Chain embraces the mission of the RJC, and its membership status demonstrates a continued effort to make sustainability a top corporate priority. Throughout the course of 40 years, the company has been a supporter of several socially responsible initiatives and charitable organizations such as Generation Rescue, Jewelers for Children and Baby2Baby.

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.”
