Paul has an in-depth discussion with Tiffany Stevens of the Jewelers Vigilance Committee, a 100-year-old organization based in New York that provides compliance guidance and legal services to the jewelry industry. The two start out talking about the Ira Sohn Investment Conference, an acclaimed annual event where hedge fund managers give away some of their best ideas for charity; Tiffany previously served as a c-suite executive for the organization behind the event. Paul and Tiffany then discuss scrutiny in the jewelry industry, how the supply-chain can navigate compliance challenges and problems with how man-made diamonds and diamond simulants are marketed to consumers. The conversation concludes with Tiffany briefly discussing how the current humanitarian crisis in Myanmar could spill over to the jewelry trade and what industry participants can do.
