About this event

Boldly Building the Future: Gold, Diamonds, and Jewelry in a Transformational Age

IAC has organized an annual in-person conference devoted to gold and diamonds since 2011, holding its 2020 and 2021 events virtually. This year, “Bolding Building the Future: Gold, Diamonds, and Jewelry in a Transformational Age,” will take a wide-ranging look at the industry, employing jewelry as a lens.

Government, civil society, communities, and industry must preserve the magic, romance, and emotional power of gold, diamonds, and jewelry for the consumer while finding new ways to convey all of this. At the same time, they must meet the imperatives of responsible sourcing and practice and environmental and social awareness, all of which underpin the UN's SDGs and the key outcomes of COP 26. This tension is the focus of the Conference, in which we will consider precious substances and their use, new technologies, comparative approaches to extraction (for example, artisanal vs. larger-scale mining), and what constitutes (and how to achieve) ethical sourcing and responsible practice—ranging from societal to environmental—and corporate succession planning.

The Conference kicks off on July 18 with an evening event offered collaboratively with WJA and focused on SDG5. During the Conference, IAC will again present two major awards: the Award for Leadership in Responsible Practice and the Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Diamond and Jewelry Industries.
