Jewelers of America and the National Retail Federation will cohost a roundtable discussion on the responsible sourcing of gold.
The discussion will take place on Sunday, July 27, during the JA New York Summer Show at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
RESOLVE senior mediator Jennifer Peyser will moderate the discussion. Holly Dranginis, policy associate for the Enough Project, will speak about opportunities to build up responsible sourcing.
The event is sponsored by Signet Jewelers. Other support comes from the Jewelers Vigilance Committee and the MJSA.
“The success of the U.S. jewelry industry depends on consumer confidence in the products our members sell,” said JA president and CEO David J. Bonaparte in a statement. “Jewelers of America believes one way for the jewelry industry to inspire consumer confidence is through the responsible sourcing of gold.”
The two-hour event begins at 8:30 a.m., and registration is available here.
