What Is The Responsible Jewellery Council?

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) is a not- for-profit organisation that sets industry wide standards and awards certification to those companies who achieve those standards and requirements. The RJC covers every aspect of the supply chain; from the mine through to the jewellery retailer; us.

What Do They Do?

The RJC since its inception in 2005, has developed key standards for the jewellery sector, became a full Member of the ISEAL Alliance, a global association for credible sustainability standards and works in partnership with a range of organisations and stakeholders on responsible sourcing issues, and has also sought to raise awareness of what is considered ‘best practice’ in the industry.

The RJC are also harmonising with other highly regarded International organisations to push industry standards higher and ensure continued and improved responsible and sustainable sourcing, these include;

What are the Codes of Practice?

As a member of the RJC we are independently audited against the RJC’s ‘Code of Practices’ –which are a collection of international standards on responsible business practices for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals.

The Code of Practices addresses issues such as; working conditions, human rights, labour rights, health and safety, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and various other vital topics within the jewellery supply chain.

Why Is This Important To Me?
