Press Release: The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) today announced that Venus Jewel, the Indian diamond manufacturer, is the first RJC member in India to achieve certification, meeting the ethical, human rights, social and environmental standards established by the RJC Member Certification System.
The RJC Member Certification System is unmatched in any other industry for the quality and breadth of its scope and standards as well as the integrity and transparency of its developmental process. The integrity of the RJC depends on Members being audited by accredited, independent third party auditors and becoming certified within the deadlines set by the RJC Member Certification System.
“The RJC warmly congratulates Venus Jewel on achieving certification. Venus Jewel’s RJC Certification results from a successful verification assessment conducted by SGS, a highly regarded and international auditing company accredited by RJC in July 2010. Venus Jewel is the first of a significant wave of India-based companies that will achieve certification this year,” says Michael Rae, RJC’s chief executive.
“Venus Jewel was established in 1969 and since its foundation has committed to the highest level of ethics, transparency and consistency. We have an unrivalled reputation for integrity, technical innovation and expertise that we are proud to have achieved over the years. We are honored to be the first RJC Member to achieve this important certification in India and we encourage others within our industry to follow suit,” says S. P. Shah, partner at Venus Jewel.
