statement. “We have worked with the
FTC for the last five years to ensure that consumers get the best information
possible about what they are buying; the FTC’s decision will go a long way to
ensure that consumers can make confident choices when purchasing platinum
jewelry, while also benefitting members of the platinum jewelry industry on the
manufacturing and retail sides.” 

PGI USA also welcomes the FTC’s publication of Going
