ADDISON, TX (June 2, 2021) — Dillon Gage Metals, the world leader in physical precious metals trading and technology, announces its refinery is undergoing the membership certification process with the Responsible Jewellery Council, also known as RJC, the world’s leading standard-setting organization for the entire jewelry and watch industry. As a certified member of RJC, Dillon Gage will regularly submit its entire manufacturing process to independent auditors for review. In total, RJC has 129 US members and more than 1300 global members.
“We continuously look for ways to improve Dillon Gage’s procedures and processes to safeguard the trust our customers have placed in us,” said Terry Hanlon, president of Dillon Gage. “Going through the certification process with the Responsible Jewellery Council allows us to add another layer to that trust. We’re excited about this endeavor to participate and continue our sustainability and maintain our high level of integrity.”
Dillon Gage will undergo an audit through the Code of Practices to become an official certified member of the Responsible Jewelry Council before June 2022; the audit will demonstrate commitment and trust within the jewelry supply chain. Afterward, the company will proceed with the Chain of Custody review, providing customers assurance about how products and services are sourced, traced and processed. The goal is to be effectively certified in 2023 and continue offering customers another level of security outside of its already standardized safety practices.
