The No. 1 Mental Health Issue for Jewelers

RUNNING A JEWELRY store is a tough job. It may help jewelers who have felt the strains of the job to know then that more than half their peers have considered getting professional help (or did seek help) to deal with stress. That’s according to the 2019 Big Survey, which asked jewelers about any mental issues they may have struggled with during their professional careers. Following stress were sleeplessness, depression and anxiety.

Please note that the Big Survey is still open and we are adding new responses as they come in. If you’re a jewelry store owner or manager and would like to take the survey, it can be accessed HERE. Be quick though, we’ll be closing it soon.

(Please note the Big Survey is designed for owners or managers)
