Jewelers for Children (JFC) has partnered with Lavish, a leading supplier of jewelry cleaner, on a fund raising program in which companies in the industry can participate. Every jewelry store sells jewelry cleaner and through this new relationship they can purchase Lavish Jewelry Cleaner in the patented foaming version, or traditional jewelry bath, directly from Lavish and support Jewelers for Children. Lavish is donating a portion of the proceeds on the sales directly to JFC to support children in need.
The JFC branded products are available with the retailer’s logo for free if they order 200 or more units, or a very affordable $.20 per unit if the order is less than 200 units. Every opening order will include a JFC branded point-of-purchase countertop display to showcase the product to customers.
Lavish is a leading supplier of Luxury Jewelry Care™ products since 2004. The specially designed care products deliver efficient sales support and outstanding marketing tools to help promote JFC and generate support from the retail jewelry community.
“Jewelers for Children is doing amazing work, and Lavish is excited to help them continue impacting the lives of children who need it the most. We feel privileged to team up with JFC to offer our industry leading jewelry care products as a way for retail jewelers and designers to participate and reach out beyond the jewelry community,” said Larry Rodgers, founder and president of Lavish. “This program will allow jewelers to provide their customers with the very best in Luxury Jewelry Care products to keep their jewelry shining and beautiful every day, with a little extra sparkle for knowing that they’re helping to make a difference in the lives of children in need.”
“Lavish produces a great product and their program that provides full support and fulfillment to the retailer is a perfect fit for JFC,” said David Rocha, executive director. “We are excited to be working with them on a program that will raise money for our mission and help involve retail jewelers across the country.

Lavish Jewelry Cleaner was created by Larry Rodgers, a third-generation jeweler. Larry’s mom, Pat, owned a jewelry store in Morro Bay, CA. Larry spent a lot of time cleaning jewelry using the traditional tools of the trade: ammoniated cleaners, silver dips, and the ultrasonic and steamer. He was instructed these methods weren’t safe for pearls, opals, cameos, emeralds, tanzanite or other delicate stone jewelry. Larry continued working in the family store while also pursuing an education in chemistry and biology.
With his background in jewelry, education in chemistry, and the help of consultants he created Lavish, a biodegradable non-toxic jewelry cleaner that is safe and effective to clean all jewelry. The cleaner was used in his three stores and given as gifts to customers. The response was so overwhelming he decided it was time for the rest of the world to discover Lavish.
Since its founding in 1999 by the U.S. jewelry industry with a mission of helping children in need, Jewelers for Children has donated more than $50 million to programs benefiting children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse or neglect through charity partners St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Make-A-Wish® America, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the National CASA Association. JFC also provides support to the Make-A-Wish® International and the Santa-America Fund.
