New members save 25% on a $175 membership when they join at JNO. Renewing members save 10% on the renewal fee of $150 when they renew at JNO.

For current and prospective members not close enough to attend a live event, there are still a variety of activities and discounts available during WJA’s Membership Month, including a dues discount, a mentorship and leadership development program, and member-to-member online community called WJA Connect, which is an active platform for members to collaborate, share knowledge, and build relationships. More details here.

“As we celebrate growing recognition of women’s achievements in the jewelry industry, our annual Jewelry Night Out ensures that all of our members get a chance to network,” says WJA President Jenny Luker. “It’s a collective celebration that inspires camaraderie and builds excitement in our chapters.”


“WJA Membership is one of the most important gifts you can give your jewelry industry career,” says Clare Ullman, membership chair. “From the networking at Jewelry Night Out and at a variety of trade shows, access to our scholarship and grant opportunities, mentorship and leadership development, and WJA Connect, it’s worth the price of admission.”

WJA also encourages attendees to use the hashtag #WJAJewelryNightOut during the evening to connect events nationwide on social sites.

Jewelry Night Out’s lead sponsors are Kay Jewelers, Zales, Piercing Pagoda, and Jared, retail brands of Signet Jewelers. Events are sponsored locally by companies in each chapter area — see individual events for local sponsor details.

Wilkerson Testimonials

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

Even successful jewelers need a little extra cash to fund expansion plans—especially when there’s inventory on hand that’s ripe for liquidation. For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”
