Responsible Jewellery Council boss quits

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) has announced the resignation of its executive officer Andrew Bone.

Bone held the position since 2015 and is the third leader since its inception in 2005. He will serve the Council until 27 March 2019.

The RJC has commenced its search for a successor and stated it was “grateful” for Bone, who oversaw the doubling of its membership under his leadership.

“It has been a pleasure and a rare privilege to have served this unique organisation as executive director,” Bone said.

“We have undertaken the review of our standards and laid the ground for the inclusion of coloured gems and silver. In addition, we have grown the management team and provided them with the resources to build on past success as we look ahead to a successful future,” he added.

RJC chair David Bouffard also reflected on Bone’s achievements.

“We are grateful for Andrew’s leadership at the RJC in supporting the continuous improvement in the integrity of the global jewellery supply chain,” Bouffard said.

“His vision has further established the RJC as the standards and certification organisation for the global jewellery industry. The board offers our sincere thanks to Andrew for his commitment and service,” he added
