•Cleaning and polishing castings
•One to three years of professional experience as a bench jeweler
•Willingness to learn and adapt to a fast-paced production environment
Our fine jewelry collection is entirely handmade in our Andover, Mass. studio. We work in 14k gold and occasionally work with platinum. Our shop is growing rapidly and training will be provided, led by our highly skilled head jeweler. We believe in the benefits of technology and quality tools to produce the best possible quality of craftsmanship, so our jewelers have access to some of the best technology in the industry. We operate in a paperless environment with each jeweler working from their own dedicated iPad, and we are always looking to become more streamlined and productive.
Tasks of the job include removing sprues, grinding and cleaning up castings, and hand polishing initially. We do not have a polishing buff, so nobody ever gets stuck at a polishing machine for the day! Since this is a production environment, cast cleaning and polishing will always be part of the job, but as the role continues, we will add more training. Even though it will take a long time, the ultimate goal is to have every jeweler trained to bring a design from raw casting, to sizing, stone setting, and polishing.
The bench jewelry position will be full-time, 40 hours, Monday – Friday. Optional overtime is typically available. Pay rate will range based on experience and skill set. Full benefits, including health insurance, paid time off and retirement plan with match, are available for all employees.
