April 4, 2011 – CMJ Media is a new company that has been formed under the umbrella of parent group The Company of Master Jewellers, to provide marketing, branding, press and publishing services to the UK jewellery and watch industry.

CMJ Media is managed by jewellery specialists for jewellery specialists: it is headed up by Sarah Carpin, a respected jewellery editor and consultant, and Colin Harris, a creative and publishing consultant who has worked with jewellery organisations and companies in the UK for many years.

CMJ Media Director Sarah Carpin said that the advantages of working with CMJ Media are clear: “We have expert knowledge of the UK retail jewellery and watch market, from understanding market and product trends, to our key relationship with independent retail jewellers through our parent company, The Company of Master Jewellers, and our intelligence on the best selling jewellery brands and products in the UK.”

Fellow Director Colin Harris added: “The experience and expertise we have within the jewellery and watch industry gives us a real strength in what we can offer to our clients. We provide a complete package to help jewellery and watch brands succeed in the UK market, from marketing through to brand consultancy and networking opportunities.”

The specialist team at CMJ Media provides a variety of marketing services and products for jewellery and watch retailers, brands, wholesalers and designer-makers.
The service is not limited to members of The Company of Master Jewellers, although retail and supplier members of the UK’s biggest buying group will be able to enjoy discounted rates.

Sarah Carpin said: “CMJ Media provides a range of support for jewellery companies that includes contract publishing, producing and managing advertising campaigns, website design and brand consultancy. As a specialist company that only works within the jewellery industry, we also provide consultancy advice to brands who are looking to break into the UK market.”
