Jewelers of America (JA) and National Jeweler have launched a diversity survey to help comprehend the position of Black Americans in the fine-jewelry industry.

The study, which will address hiring practices, inclusion policies and how racial discrimination is handled, is an effort to understand what opportunities are available for Black Americans, and their experience in the diamond and jewelry trade, the groups said Wednesday.

“We refuse to let the momentum for change slow down. We want this survey to be another stepping-stone to help everyone in the jewelry industry understand how and where they can champion diversity, equity and inclusivity,” noted National Jeweler editor in chief Michelle Graff. “It is critically important that everyone take this survey.”

Any individual working in the jewelry industry for a US-based company can submit the questionnaire, and all answers are completely anonymous. Responses can be submitted until October 7.

“It is extremely important that the jewelry industry continues to push for diversity, inclusion and equity,” stated JA CEO David Bonaparte. “The first step is to collect and analyze the data so we can not only understand the challenges and key areas where change is needed, but also be fully transparent and hold each other accountable to rally our efforts and actually make changes.”
