“It was great interacting with your team on so many occasions this year.”

Hoover & Strong enjoyed seeing Tiffany in NYC at the Gold Conference. We also enjoyed hearing from Sara Yood during the Chicago Responsible Jewelry Conference. She is brilliant and has a wonderful sense of humor. It was the only time I’ve seen a standing ovation for an attorney!  It was great interacting with your team on so many occasions this year. We are excited to continue our membership thanks to your efforts and recruitment.

“JVC provides a crucial role in creating a more transparent and ethical place to conduct business.”

In today’s globalized market, JVC provides a crucial role in creating a more transparent and ethical place to conduct business. They not only have the consumer’s well being in mind, but also they strive to protect the integrity and longevity of the jewelry industry as a whole.

“An investment in the JVC is an investment in your business’s future.”

Tiffany and her team are passionate and committed to our trade’s rich history of ethics and consumer trust. They work tirelessly to uphold those standards while at the same time keeping us informed of the latest sanctions from the state department, new FTC guidelines and nomenclature concerning synthetic diamonds as well as NRC standards for gemstone irradiation, just to name a few.

“I can tell you from personal experience that they are the guardians of integrity for the jewelry industry.”

Associations and societies are more about the individuals who make them up than the lofty goals they purport to support. The Jewelers Vigilance Committee is an amazing and underappreciated organization of individuals whom I have supported for decades and will continue to support for the foreseeable future. I can tell you from personal experience that they are the guardians of integrity for the jewelry industry. Between helping people who purchase a misrepresented item of jewelry to helping a seasoned jeweler who might be taken advantage of by an unscrupulous wholesaler, JVC is ready to do battle to help the victims. Not only are they reactive but they offer a wide array of proactive classes and seminars to keep the public (and the honest trade) safe.

John T. Abbott, GG, ASA, Abbott’s Corporation

“If you are serious about the jewelry business, their help is indispensable and worth every penny and so much more.”

I love JVC. When I got an AML audit notice from the IRS I did not even know about the law! I used their templates to institute an AML compliance system over a weekend and I passed with flying colors! Also their guidance helped me trademark my Peach Glow collection and label. If you are serious about the jewelry business, their help is indispensable and worth every penny and so much more.

Lika Behar, Lika Behar Collection

“The JVC demonstrated industry expertise, concise communication, and diligence to help me recover my loss. I’m grateful for their assistance.”

Despite their advertisement of manufacturing lab-created diamonds, a popular online retailer sold me a fake diamond ring. When I learned I had been defrauded, I contacted my state’s department of consumer affairs. I was referred to the Jewelers Vigilance Committee. The JVC demonstrated industry expertise, concise communication, and diligence to help me recover my loss. I’m grateful for their assistance.
