The United States Jewelry Council (USJC) will host a jewelry industry summit, "One of the most important consumer confidence issue of the day – undisclosed lab-grown diamonds." Signet Jewelers is sponsoring the event. In addition to the 13 U.S.-based jewelry trade associations that are members of the U.S. Jewelry Council, the World Federation of Diamond Bourses also supports the event, which will be held November 1 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
“The success of the US jewelry industry depends on consumer confidence in the products our members sell,” said Ronnie VanderLinden, President of the USJC and of the Diamond Manufacturers & Importers Association of America. “The U.S. Jewelry Council believes one way for the jewelry industry to inspire consumer confidence is through the discussion of important topics such as the detection and disclosure of undisclosed, lab-grown diamonds.”
