New York Metro

As the most prominent of the many chapters, our New York Metro chapter of WJA is made up of an eager and energetic community who are highly involved in the many facets of our ever-changing industry. We have been able to create an environment to help women and men in the jewelry and watch industries develop personally and professionally through networking, education, and mentoring events.

We hold multiple events throughout each month that range in topics, enabling crucial networking, and at different “hot” venues around Manhattan. 
If you are looking to make business connections, stay in-the-know with our industry functions, please join us at our next event (see Upcoming Events tab) or contact us today.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
