RJC Appoints New Executive Director


The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) appointed writer and curator Melanie Grant as its new executive director on 23 January 2023. 


Melanie Grant has been a journalist for over 20 years—having worked at The Times, The Financial Times, The Independent, The Guardian, The BBC and—until 2022—The Economist. “In addition to commissioning and editing luxury content, she brings significant leadership experience to the role,” said RJC.


Grant’s remit is to continue growing awareness among consumers, collectors, designers, brands and supply chain specialists in the important need to strengthen sustainable business practices in the watches and jewellery industry. With nearly 1,700 members in 71 countries, RJC has given her the responsibility of working closely with its board of directors, management team, staff and outside stakeholders to ensure the future growth of the RJC. She intends to bring clarity and creativity to this complex and vitally important area of luxury.
