emergence of the synthetic diamond (CVD), we engaged this problem as
transparent and thoroughly as possible:
only deal with natural diamonds
comply with the strict regulations of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC)
solely act according to our internal regulations and processes that are
verified by the external institute IGI (International Gemmological Institute)
working together closely with IGI for many years and became one of the first
diamond wholesalers to largely implement the screening-services of IGI. A
sample of every parcel that entered our office was sent to IGI for extensive
screening. After a negative result, we received the sealed goods back and
documented the process thoroughly. Only after the successful completion of this
process, the goods have been added to our stock.
procedure is, of course, costly in terms of money and time, but was for us the
only alternative to ensure our customers the delivery of natural diamonds.
A few weeks
ago, we decided to invest in a CVD-testing machine: The GLIS-3000 GEM
Luminescence Imaging System fulfilled all our requirements – that other
machines were not able no match.
GLIS-3000 GEM provides us with:
highest success rates at detecting CVD and other forms of synthetic diamonds,
and easy handling and
stock is being checked for synthetic diamonds. Every screening is documented
and saved internally.
the guarantee, not only for us but especially for our customers, we continue to
send samples to IGI.
We take all these measures to guarantee the
handling of only natural diamonds along the supply chain. This creates security
that you can also forward to your customers.

In the 1960´s our senior head, Mr. Anzhel Meirow, was employed by an Israeli bank as licensed purveyor. Because of his expertise he started dealing in diamonds.
At the end of the 1960´s his employer sent him to Hongkong where he successfully established himself and got into the local market.
In the early 1970´s the same company sent him as a partner to Munich to get into the European market.
In 1975 Mr. Anzhel Meirow moved his market to the Gold-City of Pforzheim, the center of the jewelry industry in Germany. He founded his own company and named it, Diamanten-Meirow GmbH.
In 1977 his son, Mr. Igal Meirow joined the company.
In 1978 Roland Klink as well.
In 1984 Mr. Igal Meirow became the manager of the company.
In 1994 Mr. Roland Klink, so far the assistant of Mr. Anzhel Meirow, was appointed assistant manager of the company.
On July 1, 2009 the company was renamed “Meirow+Klink GmbH”. Both, Igal Meirow and Roland Klink are managing and directing the company with great success. Meirow+Klink GmbH are in a strong position in the market and is expanding continuously. The company stands for competence and has established a respectable reputation in the diamond business.
Pforzheim is internationally renowned as the „City of Gold “. Already in 1767 the foundation of the manufacture and production of watches and bijouterie were laid here. And inspite of the recent changes and the recession that has taken place world-wide, 80% of all jewellery exported from Germany comes from Pforzheim. So Pforzheim was and still is the “City of Jewels ” in Germany.
Both, the University of Pforzheim and the Goldsmith-School are training young designers and those who work with gold. These institutions play important roles in the continuation and the development in the field of gold and jewellery.
The Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (Pforzheim Jewellery Museum), the only museum of its kind worldwide, specializes in the History of Jewellery. The pieces of rare gems exhibited there, have originated from many countries collected through the centuries. New treasures and other ornaments are constantly acquired and added to the permanent exhibit. Schmuckwelten Pforzheim (The World of Jewellery), another international centre of jewellery and watches, is a unique platform in Europe where one can admire and enjoy a very wide variety of unique designs of jewellery and watches. Also the Technical Museum of the jewellery and watch-making industry is visited by large numbers of people from around the world. Here the visitor can see historical machinery in action.
The geographical situation of Pforzheim is strategically ideal. The three rivers Enz, Nagold and Wuerm meet here. The city lies at the center of the Northern Black Forest Region, which offers a countryside of great diversity. Our company Meirow+Klink GmbH has for good reasons been located here for the past 35 years.

On the occasion of the 250 year anniversary of the “Goldstadt Pforzheim” there is another big news apart from the presentation of the “Goldstadt-Cut 250”:
As from the 16th of March 2017 the Meirow+Klink GmbH is a certified member at the RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council). The RJC is a not-for-profit organisation setting high standards for the whole jewellery industry. The Code of Practices addresses human rights, labour rights, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and many more important topics in the jewellery supply chain for diamonds, gold and platinum metals. Additionally the RJC is a thriving party for a real differentiation between synthetic and naturally grown diamonds, which has also been one of our unique processes in our business for several years.
We have undertaken an extensive audit executed by the highly qualified RJC examination board for which we disclosed all of our daily business processes, decision-making and supply chains. We were able to fulfill all points.
The Meirow+Klink GmbH now officially represents the values and standards of the RJC and acts accordingly. Furthermore all evidence for these will be delivered to the RJC. For further information please see www.responsiblejewellery.com.
