About the CMJ
The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) is the largest buying group for independent retailers of watches and jewellery in the UK and Ireland.
Formed in 1980, and now established for 35 years, our membership is made up of a varied mix of jewellery retailers, from quality, established family jewellers to some of the most dynamic and forward-thinking contemporary jewellers in the industry.
We currently have more than 160 members with over 400 stores across the UK and Ireland, from Shetland to Redruth, Limerick to Jersey, and we are constantly growing.
Our business is run by a democratically elected board of independent retailers and, as a co-operative, profits at the end of each financial year are distributed back to the membership. Our Board is currently made up of the following Directors:
At our 2016 AGM, we reported another record-breaking year, with sales through the group rising to over £166.6m and gross profit up by 6.6% to £2.44m.
We believe we are the most progressive and proactive jewellery and watch buying group in the UK and Ireland, helping all of our members to grow and increase profits while retaining their vital independence. We continually evolve in response to the changing retail world and needs of our members. In a highly competitive market, we help independent retailers stay one step ahead.
