Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America and Jewelers Mutual have joined forces to offer MJSA members a variety of insurance solutions specifically designed for manufacturers, retailers, bench jewelers, wholesalers, and those involved in repair, custom design, and jewelry appraising.

“MJSA is pleased to join forces with an experienced insurance company that is exceptionally knowledgeable about our industry,”

“Our partnership with Jewelers Mutual will allow our members access to important and specific information on insurance, and the various coverage options to fit their unique business needs,” said Curtis Ley, MJSA interim president and chief executive officer.
