Jewelers Mutual Group Celebrates 110 Years

The milestone marks a history of devotion to the jewelry industry with a focus on technology to shape and strengthen it for the next 110 years.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — Jewelers Mutual Group, the insurance and business solutions provider dedicated to the jewelry industry, is celebrating its 110th anniversary this month by reaffirming its commitment to the industry and its customers.

In 1913, a group of jewelers banded together because they couldn’t find insurance for their jewelry stores. Over the years, Jewelers Mutual continued to expand its protection offerings to include jewelry consumers, while bringing even more solutions to jewelers to help enable their growth. Today, the company continues to elevate the industry with programs that progressively move it forward. Jewelers Mutual’s recent establishment of the Jewelry Industry Council, the Conversations leadership event, and a multitude of innovative initiatives fuel new products and insurtech solutions to meet customers’ needs better than ever before.

“Jewelers Mutual has proven to be the consistent, dependable company that it’s more than one million customers throughout the U.S. and Canada depend on,” said Scott Murphy, Jewelers Mutual president and chief executive officer. “The responsibility that comes from serving our growing customer base is significant, and we are more focused than ever on being there for them in the ways they need us to be, both now and for the future.”

Over the past several years, Jewelers Mutual has launched numerous technology advancements for both jewelry businesses and jewelry customers, including its marketplace technology platform which has become a one-stop destination for thousands of jewelers to improve the way they do business—from shipping to appraisal solutions and more. Exploring each facet of the industry, the company continues to uncover new opportunities such as Internet of Things loss prevention technology and meaningful insurtech offerings, like its one-of-a-kind Luxsurance® program, that transforms customer experiences.

“As we look to the future, we are excited about the possibilities and are dedicated to delivering the best possible service and solutions to our customers,” said Murphy. “After 110 years, we are just getting started.”

With an expanded portfolio beyond insurance, Jewelers Mutual is well-positioned to shape and strengthen the jewelry industry for the next 110 years.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
