The California Institute of Jewelry Training (CIJT) is much more than a school where the teachers like to teach as much as the students are excited to learn.  Students are our focus and it is our goal to help them to succeed whether in the class room or years after they continue to work in their art.

We are an "epicenter of artisans"  from beginners to award winners, master custom design mechanics and magicians.  They come and just would rather stay longer instead of leaving after their class is complete.  Testimonials from those who travel from near or far to attend our classes and have their dreams of becoming a fine jeweler are met.

We also conduct classes for the professional gemologist or jewelry appraiser.  A friendly learning center to work and to stop by anytime you are in the neighborhood, a bench is available for you, as our students has the option to work independently at our studio.  Please stop by and visit our perfect atmosphere for creativity.

CIJT is in full support of our military veterans. We try to do all we can to assist them in their transition back to civilian life and we are proud that two of our staff are US Army veterans. o ng ourselves.
