I really loved the learning structure set up for the Jewelry Technician course. Marc provides plenty of knowledge throughout the entire program, not just relating to the coursework and projects, but also information on the business and current trends within the industry. I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering a career in the jewelry business, whether it's as a bench jeweler or as a designer! Priscilla , San Francisco
Discover OUR STORY and YOUR potential!
The perfect place to learn about the jewelry trade.
You can learn through specialized training in the same basic techniques, fundamentals and proficiencies as students taught as apprentice's going back to the year 1430 AD and older. Standards of excellence and skill unmatched and unrivaled by any other system of learning.
Miami Jewelry School believes in teaching with excellence. We feel that such an intricate trade cannot be learned in a day, or even a week. It takes time, practice and trial and error to become a real good jeweler. We respect the trade and believe that training professionals should not be rushed. Our facilities are also a representation of excellence. Our students train with the best and latest jewelry tools, equipment and technology. Our benches are fully equipped and resemble a professional environment.
My plans are to join my family jewelry business and a (after much practice) eventually become our primary jeweler and designer making custom pieces for our family line. The training has been fantastic. My family and I know I am receiving an excellent quality foundation to build upon and I would not attend any other school. Marc's philosophy, technique, and training methods are the best available and I am very happy to be here!Nanea Marcial Florida Keys
It was a great experience taking this class. I learned a lot and I feel more prepared and confident to start working in the field. Marc and Adriana are always willing to help you with any question or concern you might have. I am looking forward to take the Wax Carving and Casting Course. Maria Virginia Mendez Colombia

I was genuinely sad to leave MJS after getting my diplomas; the staff and students were great. I really left feeling accomplishment and that I had a far greater understanding and appreciation for the craftsmanship required, though I still have a lot of practice to be a master like Marc. I found the first stages of fabrication course a bit tough as I learnt to file and cut, but then the course just got better and better. I could do the course all over again with pleasure. Marc had so much patience with the students, which displayed a range of aptitude and skill levels. Marc provides one on one instruction and even when he's not standing with the students is aware of where they are up to and their technique. Thank you.
