(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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
