Top 10 – Best Jewelry Design Schools in the World 2016

The Best Jewelry Design Schools

Jewelry Design is a ltitle more niche than other design subjects covered at DHS, so it can be harder to find useful information in order to inform your choice of Jewelry design education.

Jewelers and precious stone and metal workers use a variety of common and specialized hand tools and equipment to design and manufacture new pieces of jewelry; cut, set, and polish gem stones; and repair or adjust rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other jewelry. Jewelers usually specialize in one or more of these areas and may work for large jewelry-manufacturing firms, for small retail jewelry shops, or as owners of their own businesses. Regardless of the type of work done or the work setting, jewelers require a high degree of skill, precision, and attention to detail.

Job Outlook (US Department of Labor)

Moderate competition is expected for skilled positions, and strong competition is expected for lower skilled manufacturing jobs. New jewelers also will be needed to replace those who retire or who leave the occupation for other reasons. When master jewelers retire, they take with them years of experience that require substantial time and financial resources to replace. Many employers have difficulty finding and retaining jewelers with the right skills and the necessary knowledge. Some technological advances have made jewelry making more efficient; however, many tasks cannot be fully automated. Jewelry work is a labor-intensive process that requires excellent handiwork
