Testimony from Goldsmith Jewelers, Billings, MT, says it all: “If you’re a jeweler you know just how big a deal being a member of the Continental Buying Group really is - especially because of how difficult it is to become part of this prestigious group. To be a CBG member you have to maintain a perfect credit rating and more importantly you have to be BIG. The CBG Jewelers list is a ‘Who’s Who’ of the best and biggest independent jewelers in the fine jewelry category from across the country. Ultimately, CBG is a buying group. The 100 CBG Jewelers buy their inventory together and get much better discounts because of the massive amount of jewelry we buy. Consequently, Goldsmith Co. pays rock bottom prices for every piece of jewelry it purchases. This equates to the best prices for quality jewelry anywhere, guaranteed.”
