Northern California

The Northern California Chapter of the Women's Jewelry Association is focused on bringing people together for fun and educational, "jewelry inspired" networking events. We typically host events all over the Northern California Bay Area, but are currently holding events and webinars virtually until further notice. Our NorCal Chapter consists of working professionals in the jewelry and watch industry, ranging from designers to sales professionals, social media specialists, bench jewelers, engagement ring consultants, retail store owners and lots more. We love engaging with our members and non-members around these events, both through email and social media. Our chapter continues to grow and we are always looking to increase our membership. We look forward to having you involved and supporting you in your jewelry career!
