Become a CMJ Retailer Member
The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) is the voice of independent retail jewellers. We are the largest buying group for jewellery and watches in the UK and Ireland and our aim is to provide our members with first-class support, business services and access to leading jewellery and watch brands and suppliers.
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.
While CMJ retail members enjoy financial advantages as part of our group, many of our members have joined because of the networking opportunities we provide them with, along with vital marketing, training and media support.
Retailers who become members of the CMJ benefit from:
As an independent retail jeweller, you may believe that joining our collective will mean that you lose your independence in buying, marketing and developing your business. Nothing could be further from the truth, as our fiercely independent members can prove.
What our Members Say
"Joining the group and using its facilities has assisted me in gaining a competitive edge over other independents and multiples on the high street. Every independent jeweller in the UK should give serious thought as to why they are not in the group. I can't think of a good reason why any independent retailer in the UK wouldn't join."
Keith Peryer, John Bull & Co., Bedford
"The Company of Master Jewellers is a non-profit making group so we are particularly impressed with the return on profit that is annually distributed back to members. My advice to any independent jeweller is that they should pick up the phone and apply for membership. Don't hesitate any longer, just do it."
Dominic Wakefield, Wakefields Jewellers, Horsham, West Sussex
"I have been stopped in my local high street and congratulated on how an independent local retailer can offer such high-quality retail brochures and catalogues to their customers. The marketing support is really excellent, and that is just one of the many, many benefits that the group offers."
Stephen Hughes, Stephen Hughes Fine Diamonds, Swansea
