JVC Publishes New Guide on FTC Platinum Amendments

The Jewelers Vigilance Committee recently released The Essential Guide to the U.S. Trade in Platinum Jewelry to clarify the Federal Trade Commission’s 2010 amendments to the platinum section of the guides for the jewelry, precious metal, and pewter industries. 

The guide explains these revised standards and what they mean in practical terms for those who manufacture, promote, and sell platinum jewelry. It is the newest addition to JVC’s series, and was underwritten by a grant from Platinum Guild International USA. 

“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,” said Huw Daniel, president of Platinum Guild International USA, in a statement. “By doing so, the JVC ensures greater clarity and peace of mind for those producing selling and buying platinum jewelry.”
