The organizations plan to share information on respective areas of expertise — like business management, insurance issues and retail strategy.
Through this partnership, Jewelers of America exclusively endorses Jewelers Mutual’s commercial and personal jewelry insurance products. Jewelers Mutual pledges its support of Jewelers of America through continued sponsorship and funding for its projects, initiatives and industry events. JA members will benefit from free access to the security training courses offered by Jewelers Mutual, as well as free supplies.
The first of such projects is the Jewelers of America Bench Certification Scholarship program. The scholarship program will give jewelers greater access to the nationally recognized certification credentials, which distinguish bench jewelers and their employers by assessing their bench skills and proficiency at four skill levels.
