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

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.”
