Jewellers Vigilance Canada (JVC) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Canadian Jewellers Association (CJA). The CJA is a not-for-profit association funded solely by the jewellery industry.
It is part of JVC’s mandate to mediate complaints between consumers, retailers, suppliers and the jewellery/watch trade in general by understanding both sides of a situation when it arises and encouraging compromise to effect an equitable solution for both parties.
All complaints submitted to JVC must be done in writing and include any copies (please keep your originals) of appraisals, bill of sale, warranties, etc. Upon receipt of the proper documentation, JVC will contact the complainee with a file number and inform the complainee of what exactly JVC can do for them.
