What is the IJO?
Starting in 1972, the Independent Jewelers Organization has become the largest buying group in the world. From its’ modest beginnings with 52 members, the company has grown to over 850 members worldwide.
IJO’s purchasing clout enables us to negotiate the best prices from more than 150 top suppliers in the industry. These savings are passed on to you.
The Independent Jewelers Organization offers its members extensive buying opportunities, allowing them to bring the top fashions and best prices to you.
IJO also allows members to buy directly from the cutters through their offices in the famous city of Antwerp, Belgium, the diamond capital of the world.
Master IJO Jewelers are full service jewelers with knowledgeable staff who will educate and guide you through your purchase either online or at the store.
“Independent” means we are long term residents of the community, involved in local issues, charities and events. We are not chain stores operated from offices outside the community.
IJO Members consistently meet the high standards of excellence, service and integrity required by the Independent Jewelers Organization.
IJO prides itself as an organization focused on continuing education for its members in both Gemology and industry trends, which promotes consumer protection for you.
