The ICA is being part of the UNICRI (United Nation Research Institute on Crime and Justice) initiative to develop a mechanism to certify and track colored gemstones from their countries of origin. This mechanism is being developed with the assistance of the VIJI (Vienna International Justice Institute).

The initiative was presented at a meeting on April 9th and 10th at the UNICRI headquarter in Turin where selected stakeholders were invited for initial consultations. Participants included representatives of governments of Brazil, Colombia, Kenya, Mozambique, Sri Lanka and Tanzania as well as from the Luxury Jewelry Brands and gemological laboratory sector. Highlights at the meeting included case studies on were presented by Brazil and South Africa on issues related to the colored gemstones and precious metals supply chain from mine to export and beyond.

ICA President Wilson Yuen addressed the audience with a summary of the situation and recent evolution of the industry “In the present context, tracking gemstones from their geographical origin with a realistic approach is an opportunity for the public sector, the gems and jewelry industry and the civil society to address together social, technical and environmental issues as well as illicit and criminal practices threatening our sector. This will undoubtedly enhance the transparency of the distribution chain and benefit all the stakeholders from mine to market and build up consumer confidence” said President Yuen
