Retail members

Any qualified or experienced jeweller may become a retail member if he or she sells, at a retail level, watches, clocks, jewellery or gift items and sees to the repair of these items.

His or her establishment must not only have the appearance of a jewellery store, it must also be well kept.

The retail member must manage a retail business that displays regular prices and does not resort to a policy based on slashed or highest possible prices fluctuating throughout the year.

The member must serve the consumers conscientiously, in all fairness and honesty.

Associate members

Any person who practices the watchmaking or jewellery trades for an employer or on his or her own account may become an associate member of the Corporation.

The spouse of an active member working as a full time employee in a jewellery store may be considered as an “employee jeweller”.

The associate member must be honest towards his or her employer and customers and relations with colleagues or officers and members of the Corporation must be open and friendly.
