Reed Exhibitions, TMG polish up an old gem

JEWELERS’ CIRCULAR KEYSTONE (JCK), an industry staple for more than 140 years, has been resurrected by the combined resources of Reed Exhibitions, an events organizer, and TMG, a custom publisher.

The magazine targets independent jewelry retail executives and now features a new large format.  It covers issues facing the industry, market forecasts, store operations, industry news, new products, jewelry trends and what’s new in product and fashion.

The readers can turn to the website,, for expanded coverage, such as breaking news, editorial and advertiser videos, and an interactive community for retailers to share ideas, insights, challenges and solutions.  It is designed to connect buyers and sellers in a global jewelry market, spotlighting emerging trends and research.

JCK was sold in 2009 by Reed Business Information to sister company Reed Exhibitions.  The new ownership then tapped TMG for the magazine and website redesign, planning to turn JCK into a multi-media brand.

The title will be published 10 times per year.  Former publisher Mark Smelzer is back and Nancy Sidewater has been hired as editor.  They are located in new offices at 400 Madison Avenue in New York.
