Graduates of American School of Jewelry working now in the jewelry trade, keep on coming back to American School of Jewelry to learn more specialties and to refine and improve their existing skills.

American School of Jewelry has graduated students from countries from all over the world.

The school is directed by Mr. Edgardo Zargon, an experienced jewelry designer who was the first jeweler to receive the highest certification available in the United States, becoming the first Certified Master Jeweler in the State of Florida.

This certification is awarded by “Jewelers of America” after a thorough testing of knowledge and skills. Jewelers of America is the largest jeweler’s organization representing more than 11,000 jewelry stores in the United States.

For working experience, Mr. Edgardo (Eddie) Zargon has owned and operated a chain of jewelry stores in the retail field as well as a wholesale import-export company in the wholesale area of the jewelry industry.

Facing a need for seasoned professionals, he started training some of his own employees utilizing diverse techniques that combined his knowledge transferred from his European Master trainers with the techniques and technology offered in the USA.

He soon realized that he could accomplish a much faster and complete training through schooling his employees using hands on techniques against the conventional apprenticeship methods.
