I support the submission by the Platinum Task Force to the FTC . I am a member of the Jewelers of America. I support all four of their recommendations. - that platinum/base metal jewelry should not be allowed to use the term "platinum" - that the current FTC proposal is unworkable in terms of industry implementation and would be confusing to consumers, -and that it's not in harmony with international standards. -The submission will also reiterate a suggestion the Task Forsce make in 2005, when this matter was first raised, which is to recommend that the FTC consider a new and different name for jewelry comprised of platinum and base metals. Thank you for your consideration. Norie Jenkins Joyce's Jewelry
