“The Federal Trade Commission writes the rules and tells our industry what is and isn't considered deceptive advertising in their efforts to protect the U.S. consumer. Most of the rules for how to advertise jewelry changed recently. The lawyers at the JVC read all the fine print so you don't have to. We are happy to present this easy to understand and fully up-to-date guide to advertising jewelry; it will be useful on a daily basis as you run your businesses,” said Tiffany Stevens, JVC president, CEO, and general counsel.
“The Smithee Group is excited to support and collaborate with the JVC on the release of this amazing resource for the jewelry industry. At a time where marketing, advertising, and content is crucial for success we want jewelers to have the right information in a very digestible format,” added Ben Smithee, The Smithee Group CEO.
“Without the support of our members and The Smithee Group, JVC’s work on projects like this one would not be possible.
