What does a Jewelry Designer do?

Jewelry designers are responsible for all aspects involved in the process of creating pieces of jewelry and related accessories. They may create custom pieces according to an individual client’s personal specifications or make a prototype for a design that will be mass produced. They research and procure materials, sketch drawings, prepare spec sheets, and approve samples. They often work closely in collaboration with R&D, production, marketing, and other departments. They may brainstorm design ideas based on new or upcoming trends.

Jewelry designers may have a college degree or technical diploma in jewelry making or a design field, or a background in art or graphic design. They should be proficient with graphic design software programs. These roles require strong creative talents, innovative thinking, and the ability to spot emerging trends.
