Overwhelming reaction to our For Sale article

An update on the positive response to The Jewellery Editor's recent article announcing the company is up for sale to achieve the next level of growth.

As many of you have seen, on the 9th February we took the brave move of publishing a story on our website announcing that we are for sale.

Despite the advice of others saying this was not standard procedure, our unorthodox thinking was that we had the best platform to communicate with like-minded people. So we did. The article was published, a newsletter was sent to our database of 20,000, the story was placed on LinkedIn and Facebook and a few Tweets helped spread the message.

The response has been overwhelming. In just under three weeks we have received dozens of messages of encouragement and support. We now have a list of more than twenty different individuals, publishers and organisations interested in purchasing us.  The sales process is now in motion.

Our aim is find a buyer whose strategy and values are in line with those of The Jewellery Editor. As the No. 1 digital magazine dedicated solely to fine jewellery and watches, with the right investment and expertise, we have the potential to become a major global player in e-commerce and events. We just need to find the perfect partner to make it a reality.

This positive reaction is encouraging and we think we are on the way to finding the ideal match. If you are interested in finding out more, please email [email protected] before our 31st March 2018 deadline.

Maria Doulton and the team from The Jewellery Editor have created more trusted and well-researched content on jewellery than any other publication worldwide.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
