The National Association of Jewellers (NAJ)

The NAJ is a professional membership body. We represent over 2,000 members that operate in every aspect of the jewellery industry. As an industry-leading education provider, we deliver internationally recognised qualifications, exciting short courses and bespoke business mentoring.

The Association was formed in 2015 through the unification of the British Jewellers' Association (BJA) and National Association of Goldsmiths (NAG). The Institute of Registered Valuers is also part of the NAJ family, comprised of around 150 professional valuers with formal qualifications and substantial experience. Every NAJ member is required to abide by the NAJ's Code of Conduct - based on honesty, integrity and professionalism. Members proudly display the NAJ's Grant of Arms to signify commitment.

As an NAJ member, you benefit from support, advice, insight and networking opportunities. We give you the tools you need to create exceptional experiences for your customers.
