About

Purpose
The Jewelers 24 Karat Club was formed in 1944 to promote ethical business practices among jewelers.

We have a fourfold purpose:
1) social,
2) professional networking,
3) educational and
4) charitable giving back to our community.

The prestigious Jewelers 24 Karat Club of Southern California is a national association of jewelers headquartered in Southern California. Our members are the leaders of the jewelry industry from coast to coast.

We are business owners, retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, designers, appraisers, educators, publishers and service providers. Our members also include the heads of other nationally known jewelry associations.

The 24 Karat Club meets monthly throughout the year. We are dark in July and December.

Career Fair
The Jewelers 24 Karat Club is very proud of its heritage as one of two co-founders of GIA Career Fair – the other being GIA. We continue to be a major supporter of GIA Career Fair. Our members participate in Career Fair in both New York and Carlsbad as speakers and mentors.
