JA in the News
April 4, 2023

New York, NY – Jewelers of America (JA), the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, has launched a comprehensive Jewelry Industry Salary Study. The study will provide critical data for JA's updated Guide to Careers in the Jewelry Industry, which is being revamped to better attract a younger, more diverse pool of talent to the industry.

Jewelers of America is asking owners, managers and HR professionals to securely share input on the Jewelry Industry Salary Study Platform. Jewelers will be asked to provide metrics pertaining to salary basics, work environment, commission structure, benefits, and education/experience level requirements.

“The launch of the Jewelry Industry Salary Study comes at a pivotal time in the changing work landscape when businesses are looking to gain and retain great employees,” says JA President & CEO David J. Bonaparte. “We are looking forward to gathering this comprehensive data to benefit the entire jewelry industry and attract a new, younger audience of future talent.”

By sharing information on various job roles, jewelers will be able to utilize this study as a benchmarking tool to compare their organization’s compensations against others in the industry. Additionally, this key data can help businesses to identify new opportunities for growth and gain a competitive edge in recruiting.

As a bonus, all participants who complete the survey can opt-in to be entered into a drawing to win a $500 American Express Gift Card. All data will be collected securely and will be aggregated to ensure the privacy of participating companies and/or persons.

The deadline to complete the Jewelry Industry Salary Study is May 2, 2023. Individuals can complete the survey here:https://benchmarking.jewelers.org/registration.aspx.
