RAPAPORT... To help clarify the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s 2010 revised standards on the platinum, jewelry and precious metal trade,  The Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC) recently released The Essential Guide to the U.S. Trade in Platinum Jewelry.  The release, which is the newest addition to JVC’s series of Essential Guides, includes legal standards for platinum, a glossary of terms, two platinum tolerance charts and a frequently asked questions section.

Cecilia Gardner, JVC president, comments: “This Essential Guide explains fairly complex FTC amendments for the marketing and stamping of products containing platinum. This tool gives practical guidance on how to compliantly market and describe these products. 

Huw Daniel, president of Platinum Guild International USA, said, "We are delighted that the JVC has taken this initiative to help the jewelry industry understand and implement the recent amendments to the FTC Jewelry Guides on Platinum by publishing The Essential Guide.  By doing so, the JVC ensures greater clarity and peace of mind for those producing selling and buying platinum jewelry."

The Essential Guide to the U.S. Trade in Platinum Jewelry is available on the JVC website and will be available at the organization’s booth at the upcoming JCK show.
