The Plumb Club overwhelmingly voted to require all new and existing members to become certified members of the RJC. This is an important milestone and reflects The Plumb Club’s vision of pioneering industry leadership to promote responsible practices.

The JCK Las Vegas Show provides the opportunity to further deepen the relationship between The Plumb Club and RJC – with a joint goal of working towards responsible business practices throughout the jewelry and watch supply chain.

“We are excited to have the Responsible Jewelry Council exhibit with us”, said Victor Weinman, chairman of The Plumb Club Pavilion. “Their presence in the pavilion enhances our commitment to the retailer for responsible sourcing and further underscores our vision to help shape the future of the jewelry industry. By having the RJC in our Pavilion we will provide the retailer the opportunity to better understand the future of RJC in the American jewelry marketplace”.

During the most recent general meeting of The Plumb Club, held on January 10 during the 24 Karat weekend in New York, RJC Executive Director, Iris Van der Veken spoke to the membership of The Plumb Club, congratulating the attendees on their commitment to the industry.

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.”
