Two new independent jewellery retailers have joined the Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ), as the buying group continues to grow its membership.

The latest additions to the buying group are Somerset-based Joseph Welch Jewellers and Monaghan-based Magill Jewellers.

Established in November 2011 in the heart of Wellington, Joseph Welch Jewellers specialises in beaded jewellery, offering customers brands including Trollbeads, Ohm Beads, RedBaliFrog and Nomination. Welsh has worked in the jewellery trade for over 18 years, gaining great experience from his parents who have been involved in the industry since he was born.


On his decision to apply to become a CMJ Retail Member, director Joseph Welch comments: “I wanted to join CMJ because of the networking opportunities and to meet other like minded retailers. I believe the support, experiences and knowledge of the group and their retailers will assist me greatly in growing my business in the future.”

Magill Jewellers was established in Monaghan town, Ireland in 1922 and has enjoyed great success, growing from a small store to becoming one of the leading jewellers in the north-east region of the country. As well as stocking a vast selection of brands in-store, Magill Jewellers also offers an in-house jewellery and watch repair service

“Being part of a large buying group such as CMJ will be of great benefit to our company,” shares Magill Jewellers owner, Gerard Toal. ” It will give us access to an array of suppliers whose products would suit our range and image. The buying events and networking opportunities will also be a great support to us.”

The addition of Joseph Welch Jewellers and Magill Jewellers takes CMJ’s total number of retail members up to 160, with more than 400 doors across the UK and Ireland.
