Dec. 15 is its last day.

The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco will close on Dec. 15.

Founder Alan Revere made the announcement on the school’s website.

“My goal has always been to bring the fine craftsmanship that I learned in Europe to others who share my passion,” he wrote. “Since 1979 the Revere Academy has attracted thousands of students from all 50 states and as many countries. With past students now working as jewelers, entrepreneurs, bench technicians, designers and makers across the country and around the globe, I am proud of what the Revere Academy has accomplished. It is indeed very satisfying to know that our graduates bring happiness and beauty into the world every day.”

Revere had said in the summer that he planned to retire and that the school was for sale.

But he now says no classes will be offered in 2018.

“I feel that I have completed a personal mission to carry old world craftsmanship across the ocean and into the next millennium,” he said. “And so it is time for me to pass the torch.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
