Blog

Welcome to the CMJ blog, where we bring you jewellery industry opinion, top tips, checklists, interviews and more.

Have you read a blog post that you may want to discuss or get further advice on? Do you want to ask peers how they currently do something or how and where they started? Our members have the benefit of joining WhatsApp groups where they discuss topics like this. As a CMJ member, you also have access to our private Facebook group, where you can share our blog posts and discuss content further with fellow retailers and suppliers.

If you see something that you like, please feel free to share our content. Helping independent retailers is at the heart of what we do.
