We have been in business for over 25 years now and here you can about our company and it's history. Also here we include details of our delivery & returns policy, as well as trading terms and conditions.
Marjo was established in 1984 importing gem-set silver jewellery and other crafts from India. Since then we have expanded to become the largest supplier of this type of jewellery to the independent trade in the UK. With over 1500 customers being regularly supplied by us.
Marjo is a SME and we employ an average of 12 people in part-time and full-time employment. The business is a limited company (Marjo Distribution Ltd.) and is VAT registered.Back to top
Marjo has the largest collection of gem-set silver jewellery in the UK. We have collections in over 50 different types of stone plus a great diversity of one-off items. We have over 750 designs in total and each of these designs comes in a variety of stones. New collections are introduced every six months and one off items are also introduced regularly.
The silver is all sterling (.925) and where necessary it is hallmarked by the Sheffield assay office. It is not legally required to assay products under 7.7gms of silver weight. The gems we use are pre-selected and are all natural in either cabochon style or faceted.
Marjo covers products in all aspects of jewellery, including earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pendants and rings. We even do toe-rings and ankle-chains. We do not do any male jewellery. Local artists design the jewellery mostly in the UK and we have a working relationship with Kent's University College of Creative Arts and several other freelance designers. The jewellery is manufactured in over 7 different countries depending on the type of stone and the type of jewellery required.Back to top
