San Diego

Welcome to WJA San Diego’s chapter page!  We are a diverse group of jewelers, artisans, retailers, and educators. Our chapter members are from all over San Diego County. The members of our chapter are engaging, supportive, and committed to helping each other grow in our careers and family businesses. The San Diego chapter hosts both social and educational events throughout the year, encouraging networking, business development, and camaraderie.

If you are looking to meet new friends in the gem and jewelry business and make incredible connections, please join us at our next event (see Upcoming Events tab) or contact us today.
We look forward to connecting with you soon!
