Press Release: The U.K.-based Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) has announced that it is working closely with the CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, on strategies relating to corporate social responsibility (CSR) throughout the global jewelry industry.

The CMJ is the largest jewelry buying group in the U.K., bringing under its umbrella more than 150 jewelry retailers, representing over 270 shops. It was established 32 years ago to provide a strong platform from which independent jewelers can trade freely and independently.

Speaking at the CMJ trade event in Birmingham, which was held last week, CIBJO's president, Gaetano Cavalieri, confirmed that he had invited the CMJ's chief executive, Willie Hamilton, to join a CIBJO committee that will draft a code of conduct for international jewelry trade events. Hamilton will work alongside representatives from the leading jewelry trade shows.
Cavalieri noted that CIBJO and CMJ share the same values, ethics and principles. In this respect, he said a formal process had been implemented to advance the development of CSR, led by Hamilton and CMJ.

"We are pleased to report that CIBJO recognizes the CMJ as a key driver within the U.K. jewelry industry," said Hamilton. "I had the privilege of attending the CIBJO annual conference a few weeks ago and I was astounded at the tireless work that CIBJO undertakes for the future security and development of the jewelry industry on an international scale. So much of the work, values, principles and ethos of CIBJO reflect those of The CMJ, on a larger, international scale." 

The CMJ trade event in Birmingham was the organization's largest trade show to date, featuring three buying halls where 100 of the industry's leading designers, manufacturers and suppliers showcased their new products.

CIBJO is the international jewelry confederation of national trade organizations. CIBJO's purpose is to encourage harmonization, promote international cooperation in the jewelry industry and to consider issues which concern the trade worldwide. CIBJO's chief mission is to protect consumer confidence in the industry.
