The precious coral industry cannot be branded as an environmentally insensitive business sector. On the contrary, it must be seen as being environmentally aware, because it depends on healthy oceans and healthy coral reefs for its livelihood, said CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri, speaking today before the Pacific Precious Coral Forum in Taipei.
A blue-ribbon panel of experts has discussed what may be a gathering storm for the gold jewellery industry, brought upon by legislative processes targeting minerals from conflict areas in the Great Lakes region of Africa. They were participating in a seminar at the VICENZAORO Winter trade fair, entitled “Conflict mineral legislation in the Europe and the United States: How it impacts upon both the domestic and export jewellery business.” It was hosted by Fiera di Vicenza; CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation; the Responsible Jewellery Council; and Confindustria Federorafi.
The new year is likely to be a most significant one in terms of the regulation of minerals from areas of conflict in Africa, including gold. It involves legislation coming into effect in 2014 that will influence the businesses of thousands of jewellers directly or indirectly supplying the U. S. market, and pending legislation that may affect companies importing or supplying jewellery in the European Union countries
CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, will hold its 2014 annual congress in Moscow, Russia, May 19-21, 2014, with pre-congress meetings on May 17 and May 18. The congress will be hosted by the Russian Jewellers’ Guild.
The Borsa Diamanti d'Italia, Italy’s only diamond exchange, has honoured the CIBJO President, Dr. Gaetano Cavalieri, bestowing upon him honorary life membership at a ceremony conducted at the bourses’ headquarters in Milan.
