Stubbs & Co., a major supplier of fine jewellery to over 2,000 independent jewellers and department stores in the UK, Europe and Australia, is the latest recruit to Emagold – the quality jewellery manufacturers’ association, bringing its membership to fifteen companies.
Emagold was founded in 1992 with support from the World Gold Council and has long been dedicated to the promotion of quality, British designed jewellery. Its membership includes some of the UK’s most long-established and largest jewellery producers.
David Shem-Tov, managing director of Stubbs & Co. – a family business based in London’s Hatton Garden – is delighted to have been accepted into the group.
“British jewellery businesses are under increasing competition from overseas but it is my belief that we at Stubbs & Co. and our fellow Emagold members have a great deal to offer the UK’s trade, not simply in the great diversity of fine jewellery we supply, but also in terms of our superior levels of service, intimate market knowledge and flexibility of response. Working as a group we can ensure that this message is more fully understood,” he says.
Members of Emagold show together on a landmark pavilion at International Jewellery London and at Spring Fair Birmingham and Stubbs & Co. will be joining the group for the first time at IJL in September, 2007. “This will be our first exhibition for 15 years and we are excited about showing under the Emagold umbrella,” says Shem-Tov.
Renowned for its innovative approach to marketing, Stubbs & Co. will take the opportunity at IJL to showcase how the Refining your brand TM philosophy, combined with its fine jewellery collections of wedding rings, enduring consumer favourites and chic, cutting-edge designs can make a real difference to its customers’ bottom line.
Welcoming Stubbs & Co. to Emagold, the group’s President, John Coupland of Saunders Shepherd Group, said: “We have no doubt that having Stubbs & Co. on board will further strengthen an already strong group. Stubbs is well known in the industry and has an enviable reputation for the integrity and diversity of its product. Its presence on the Pavilion at IJL will provide an additional draw to retailers looking for British suppliers of the highest calibre.”
