Today’s post is primarily centered around one of the many “elite” organizations that some may view as the propeller’s of the jewelry industry. As with many secret/ invite only organizations, image and status are usually the primary factors which ultimately determine membership. Today we will discuss the infamous “24 Karat Club” their vague history and contributions to the industry.
The 24 Karat Club is an elite, invitation only membership organization which seeks to forward the growth of the jewelry industry. This club offers an impressive list of scholarship opportunities awarded annually to deserving jewelry industry recipients throughout each of their individual chapters in the United States.
The 24 Karat Club schedules its meetings, events and functions to run concurrently with other jewelry shows which are held every year. Their members serve as volunteers on various committees to promote the efforts of the organization.
Although there are objects of skepticism that surround organizations with with secret natures, the fact that this is 1930’s club has such a vague nature usually sends anyone’s mind running for answers. As positive an image it may portray, we must always remember that everything that glitters isn’t necessarily gold.
