Jewelers, Inc. (founded in 1975) to provide career education
programs in basic and advanced jewelry repair and diamond

are offered to all persons interested in learning the basic skills
necessary to enter the jewelers' profession. We do not deny
admission on the basis of race, religion, age, color, gender,
physical handicap, national origin, or sexual preference.
Because of the nature of the programs offered, our
instruction must be individualized, often on a one-to-one
basis. Therefore our policy is to limit the number of students
per class to a maximum of fififteen.
Our objectives are:

jewelers who want to upgrade their skills and all
individuals who are interested in entering the jewelry
