RAPAPORT... The U.S. Jewelry Council, which works to ensure the industry is collectively represented at the government and international level, announced the addition of four new members.

The American Gem Trade Association, Diamond Club West Coast, the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers and the Silver Promotion Service have joined the lobby, which now represents 13 associations.

Existing members include the American Gem Society, the Diamond Dealers Club of New York and Jewelers of America.

The council was set up when the individual associations realized they would have greater influence on the government if they acted in unison, it said. Lobbying by the group addresses social, ethical and environmental issues that might impact consumer confidence in the U.S. jewelry industry.
