Jewelry Career Readiness Initiative
The Jewelry Career Readiness Initiative was developed by the Diamond Council of America to help create qualified job candidates for the retail jewelry industry. It uses DCA’s accredited distance-education certifications in diamonds,
colored gemstones, and jewelry sales to supplement the career-readiness programs that exist in most US high schools.
In addition to DCA certifications, classes include special hands-on projects, educational videos, and local jewelry
professionals as Industry Guest Speakers. Graduates can participate in a computer-based referral service that provides two-way links with potential employers.
