Black In Jewelry Coalition

The Black In Jewelry Coalition (BIJC) believes in #ShiningTogether! We are the first international non-profit membership organization that strives for the advancement of Black professionals within the gem, jewelry and watch industries. BIJC provides opportunities and resources for networking, education, and increasing representation.

We promote change in our industry with the fundamental understanding that by uniting our resources and partnering with allies, we cultivate growth and create opportunities through an alliance that is for us, by us.

BIJC members have access to a Mentorship Match program, internships, scholarships, grants and more! Sign-up today:

BIJC recently launched the Together By Design contest and competition that celebrates love and highlights Black jewelry designers. Couples are encouraged to submit their love stories for the opportunity to win a custom 1.31 ct Round Brilliant diamond (donated by Leo Schachter) engagement ring. The winning couple’s story will be brought to life through the second portion of the competition where jewelry designers compete for the chance to create the ring. The winning design will be created using supplied precious materials donated by Rio Grande and Platinum Guild Association. Visit to learn more!
