Brand hopes certification will boost consumer and retailer confidence.
Clogau Gold has become the latest jewellery brand to be certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), meeting the ethical, social and environmental standards outlines by its Member Certification system.
The RJC’s chief executive Michael Rae said of Clogau’s certification: “RJC warmly congratulates Clogau Gold Of Wales Ltd on its certification. The successful verification assessment was conducted by Roshini Wickramasinghe from SGS, one of the independent third-party auditing firms accredited to the RJC’s Member Certification system.”
Ben Roberts, managing director of Clogau Gold, said the brand was pleased to have been certified and that the announcement will reinforce both its customers’ and suppliers’ confidence in the brand.
“Clogau will continue to strive, and become a highly visible example, of RJC certification. We hope many more UK brands become compliant as well,” said Roberts.
The brand also recently signed up to the Assay Assured initiative, offering online consumer assurance that the brand’s website offers genuine Clogau Gold products.
