Modern Jeweler Suspends Publication

This item was posted on the Modern Jeweler blog:

After 108 years of serving the jewelry industry, Modern Jeweler is suspending publication. We’d like to thank all the people who worked hard over the years to make every issue worth reading. We’d also like to thank the retailers and manufacturers who shared their time and expertise with our readers each month. We hope to find a buyer who believes in the future of the jewelry industry as much as we do. But even if we don’t and the August issue of Modern Jeweler is truly the last, we are sure that the jewelry industry’s strong community and generosity of spirit will ensure its recovery is swift and its future is bright. We’ll certainly miss being there to cover it.

- Tim Murphy, Publisher, and Cheryl Kremkow, Editor-in-Chief

This is indeed a sad day in the Industry - Modern Jeweler was one of a handful of beautifully presented magazines to the trade. The quality of the publication is evident in the above cover from their last edition. The did justice to the pieces that graced their pages and Cheryl Kremkow had gathered a talented group of writers...they will be missed.

Wow. That is sad. I do hope they find their way back into publishing. It hurts us all when great efforts like this have to shut down.
