We're looking for a sales associate to join our team! You'll not only sell our jewelry inventory, but you will also help design custom jewelry pieces for clients, identify needed repairs in a client's jewelry, and educate clients on jewelry and gemology in the course of their sales presentation. Other tasks include following up with clients after a sale, maintaining store appearance, and opening and closing the store. All sales associates will become certified in jewelry and gemology after hire, and are constantly making efforts to learn more! To be considered, cover letters must include your favorite gemstone.

You will become an expert in jewelry and a Certified Sales Associate through the American Gem Society. We provide and pay you during your intensive on-the-job training, and also require that you do some learning on your own. The amount of home study impacts your success and earnings at Fox Fine Jewelry. A minimum amount of home study for those with no jewelry experience is 30 hours; most chose to invest more.
The average earnings of $40,000 to $50,000 (based on FT hours) are based on an hourly rate plus commission. For those with no experience with jewelry sales, it takes about a year to be earning at that rate. This is an average, and it depends upon your skills, experience, personality, and the amount of time spent learning at home. The hourly rate varies with your experience, and you earn commission on all jewelry sales, repairs and custom design.
