The typical day for a jeweler was always somewhat similar, but also new and different each day. It brought some stability of going into a shop every day, but the jewelry that we bought/sold changed constantly. Just like fashion styles go in and out of style, so too does jewelry. Staying up-to-date on fashion trends can literally make or break a jewelry shop, so its always the responsibility of a jeweler to see what is going on in the fashion world. This was always very exciting to me, to have the stability of a nice "9-5" job, but to have the changes that come over time in the industry.Overall, being a jeweler is a very fulfilling experience. You help people find beauty in the artwork of jewelry, and using that art to make themselves beautiful. It really is a great industry for those who are passionate about it.
