New location for Green Jewelry

Green Jewelry can now be found at

See you there!

New Green Pack is now available

Jewelers Vigilance Committee is releasing its eco-friendly Green USA PATRIOT Act Compliance Kit. Known as "GREEN PACK," it is for use by jewelers to develop and maintain effective anti-money laundering programs that comply with the requirements of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and the Internal Revenue Service.

The Green Pack is nearly paper-free and includes a storage binder, CD containing the information, templates, and forms that were in JVC’s previous PACK plus new guidance for the industry and an AML DVD to help jewelers to train their employees on the general requirements of the law.

Click here to order your Green Pack.

Giving Gold New Life

If you're gonna have a party, you might as well serve gold. (Uh that would be the gold found in jewelry, not a tequila bottle.)

The Arizona Republic featured a story about a new trend popping up in the amature gold trading market.

Likened to a Tupperware Party, these "gold parties" allow guests to bring and recycle unwanted gold for cash.
