The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Submission Form 2018

In 2018 Munich Jewellery Week will launch a new website – a perfect tool to navigate Munich, with an interactive map, practical information, images, previews, and much more! The website takes advantage of the EU abolishing roaming charges for mobile users travelling to other countries. Surf the net without paying any extra roaming charges and use our new interactive website right on the streets of Munich.
