Job description

Can you manipulate metal like Magneto? And resize a ring fast as Flash?

Then we want YOU!

Alter’s Gem Jewelry is a 103-year-old, family-owned jewelry store located in Beaumont, Texas and we are seeking a phenomenal Bench Jeweler to join our team. When people shop for jewelry, they’ll shop the world. But when people need a repair, they go to the place they TRUST. As the jewelry leader in Southeast Texas we have earned the trust of our clients, and we need your help to ensure we continue to deliver for them.

watch repair


•You can complete at least 15 jobs a day
•You deliver on time, and it’s always right the first time
•You are fully-skilled in all forms of setting (prong, channel, bright-cut, flat, micropavé, bezel, etc..)
•You can set it and size it the same day if needed
•Once in a while, you might even perform a bit of a miracle for our clients
•You have the patience to deal with problems and approach people with kindness
•You lead by example
•You love life
•You love people
•You are detail-oriented – For instance, if you don’t read this posting thoroughly (hint hint), we will never see your resume.

You don’t have to worry about CAD design.


You will manage our on-site jewelry repair room and it’s top-of-the-line equipment, including:

•Laser Welder
•Polishing Room

If you have your own hand tools, great! If not, we’ll help you buy them.


Our clients are at the center of everything we do. And one big advantage we have over internet retailers is that we can deliver for them today.

To get that done, you’ll be responsible for evaluating and managing jobs and ordering materials. We’ll empower you to use your judgement to get the work done. For example: If you have an order to fix three prongs but discover five actually need repair. Well you don’t need to get permission to do what is RIGHT: you just fix all five prongs.

As a jeweler, you are often the unsung hero by your commitment to saving the day for our customers and our sales team. Everyone makes mistakes, but you are always ready to come to the rescue! No cape required.

So how good are you? Tell us about yourself. Tell us what you’ve done and how long you did it, what you liked best and what you liked least. Tell us why you are the best jeweler to join our team!


This is a fun place to work, and the people who work here love LIFE. Are you one of us?

We value thoroughness and the ability to focus, so we’re putting a special word in this paragraph to weed out sloppy people, half-hearted people, inattentive people and people without a sense of humor. Anyone skimming through job descriptions and blindly blasting out resumes won’t see this line. But you’re actually reading this job description, aren’t you? Nicely done. Put the words “No Cape Required” in your cover letter, resume, or the subject line of your reply, and we’ll give your resume the same respect you’ve given this job description. We’ll actually read it! Any application that does not have “No Cape Required” in the subject line, will be printed out, wadded into a ball, and tossed into the trash via sky hook, nothing but net.

Most of our staff has been here 15 years or more! This is not a place with a lot of turnover, and that should tell you something. This is a truly amazing job for the right person.

And we can’t wait to meet you!
