The mission of Miami Jewelry School is to be a recognized regional and global provider of highly-trained jewelry professionals with exceptional skills. By combining academic excellence and extensive hands-on training, we prepare students to become jewelry professionals ready for an exciting and successful career in the jewelry industry. We are an established, Vocational Trade School licensed by the Florida Department of Education since 1987. For 30 years we have trained students of all ages.
There are many schools available for teaching you the basics of jewelry making, however in jewelry making, learning the basics is only one part. It’s the skill, expertise and proficiency of the instructor that makes a big difference. So when you compare us to other schools take in the consideration of your teachers expertise and how long they have been in an actual jewelry business. Has your teacher been a jeweler and for how many years? Has he been active in retail and wholesale? Does he know about Trade shows. Would he be able to answer all of you jewelry related questions?
You can learn through specialized training in the same basic techniques, fundamentals and proficiencies as students taught as apprentice's going back to the year 1430 AD and older. Standards of excellence and skill unmatched and unrivaled by any other system of learning. Miami Jewelry School believes in teaching with excellence. We feel that such an intricate trade cannot be learned in a day, or even a week. It takes time, practice and trial and error to become a real good jeweler. We respect the trade and believe that training professionals should not be rushed. Our facilities are also a representation of excellence. Our students train with the best and latest jewelry tools, equipment and technology. Our benches are fully equipped and resemble a professional environment.
