The Women’s Jewelry Association (WJA) is excited to resume its first in-person event of the year with its ninth annual Jewelry Night Out celebration and membership drive taking place on September 9, 2021. WJA chapters in over 20 cities across North America will bring together industry professionals on one night for an inspiring evening of community, connection, collaboration and celebration.
