RAPAPORT... The World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) has released a new guide for the jewelry industry detailing standards and practices for supply-chain due diligence. 

The 14-page “Responsible Sourcing Blue Book” provides a set of universal guidelines industry members can follow to help them support responsible sourcing and maintain integrity in their supply chain, CIBJO said Monday.

“The philosophy that guided us in the creation of “Responsible Sourcing Book” is that all participants in the jewelry business have a duty of care, and thus should conduct supply-chain due diligence to the best of their ability,” said CIBJO president Gaetano Cavalieri.

The “Responsible Sourcing Book” is the latest in a line of instructional manuals the organization has issued. CIBJO also offers Blue Books that provide standards and guidelines concerning descriptive words for diamonds, colored gemstones, pearls, precious coral, precious metals and gemological labs.

CIBJO’s Responsible Sourcing Commission created the guidelines, with jewelry experts and the general public subsequently reviewing them.
