The Union Française de la Bijouterie, Joaillerie, Orfèvrerie, des Pierres & des Perles (UFBJOP) represents the French jewellery industry. It defines and implements sophisticated projects for developing the sector across the four organisations that it encompasses.
  • As the professional organisation for jewellers, goldsmiths and precious stone and pearl dealers, the Union promotes the interests of its members, oversees the social dialogue and builds roadmap strategies for the industry’s future;
  • The "Ecoles" (schools) provide initial and professional training as well as sandwich courses to meet the needs of the trade;
  • The "Joaillerie de France" label endeavours to promote the "Made in France" concept and French expertise; 
  • The Laboratoire Français de Gemmologie (French gemmological laboratory) offers gemstone analysis and professional certification services for consumer protection.

For the profession at large, the UFBJOP acts as a point of contact for dialogue with the sector’s public authorities and partners in France. Playing a key role in fostering social dialogue and supporting the development of businesses, the UFBJOP brings together the different professions within the industry to address new challenges.

The UFBJOP represents a unique venue where professionals can discuss their concerns, the needs of the market and solutions for the future of the industry. Thanks to its constituent organisations, the UFBJOP is able to respond to new issues facing the profession, such as competition from abroad, the development and transfer of expertise and skills as well as the transition to new technologies. Today, the UFBJOP serves the industry by successfully balancing its roles as a trade association, a training hub, a centre of expertise for gemstones and a champion of French excellence.
