Meeting new people and forming meaningful business relationships is the hallmark of the Women's Jewelry Association and its world-wide network of members.
The Providence Chapter of the Women’s Jewelry Association empowers women to achieve their highest personal and professional goals in the international jewelry, watch and related businesses. Members benefit from educational and networking opportunities, mentorship, scholarships, grants, design competitions and recognition programs.
Throughout the year, we host a variety of events aimed at fostering community within our local industry. In addition to our signature Jewelry Night Out and holiday parties, last year’s offerings included social hours, an open house at the Providence Jewelry Museum, an In the Know regional conference on marketing and trends and a tour of Tanury Industries.
Because of our affiliation with the national WJA, our members can take advantage of numerous scholarship and grant opportunities. Since 1996, the WJA has awarded more than $300,000 in scholarships to students in some of the best jewelry programs in the country. These include Fashion Institute of Technology, University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth and Rhode Island School of Design.
