These guaranteed certificates issued as Utility NFTs are secured on the blockchain and will be supplied with every luxury product Ace Jewelers retails, both in-store and online. These certificates will also offer a suite of options such as insurance, traceability, as well as the service for consumers to have their pre-purchased luxury items certified as well, as they wait in-store.

Although the majority of newly produced luxury goods are sold through a network of carefully selected authorized retailers, end-consumers expect full transparency and a proof of its authenticity.

As I have been working both in the luxury industry as a jeweler since 1998 and in the tech industry as a start-up entrepreneur since the year 2000, I immediately understood that the ORIGYN technology is not only a game changer for the industry (a so-called killer app), but also very much needed in these industries it means to serve. Up until this year there simply was no paperless technology available to offer a tamper-proof system of authentication for luxury products. It finally solves a problem that has existed since biblical times: proving authenticity of physical luxury objects.” says the co-owner of Ace Jewelers, Mr. Alon Ben Joseph, M.Sc.

Thanks to the blockchain, these digital certificates (Utility NFTs) reinforce the trust between brands and their customers, opening up the field of possibilities for new experiences and exclusive services for luxury watches, leather goods, fashion, sneakers, cosmetics, wine and spirits and jewelry.
