About JA New York
The JA New York jewelry show is the premier international jewelry event that brings exhibitors and retailers from around the world together in New York City, the jewelry capital of the world. The JA New York show dates back to 1906 when its predecessor, the American National Retail Jewelers of America (ANRJA) was founded. The legacy of the ANRJA show has been carried through JA New York, as it celebrates 100 years of excellence and service to the jewelry industry. The JA New York Shows are produced by National Jeweler, a world-class trade show producer and publisher of the industry leading National Jeweler magazine.
JA New York is proud to produce four leading jewelry trade shows in the United States:
The shows are the optimal size with a complete array of exhibitors, giving retailers access to a comprehensive selection of merchandise across all price points, segments and product categories. The shows are perfectly timed to meet the buying needs of the jewelry retailer throughout the year. And all three shows are held in New York City at the Javits Center, an outstanding and convenient location within driving distance for a majority of all U.S. jewelry retailers.
The JA New York Shows are also the only shows affiliated with Jewelers of America, the largest and most respected jewelry retailer association in the U.S. JA New York contributes over half a million dollars to Jewelers of America to support professionalism and high social, ethical, and environmental standards in the jewelry trade. The JA New York and Jewelers of America partnership provide access to educational programs and services, leadership in public and industry affairs, and encourage members with common interests to act in their and the industry's best interests. Jewelers of America represents more than 11,000 jewelry stores nationwide and is the indisputable leader for the jewelry industry, providing high quality educational programs and services, public and industry affairs leadership, certification, networking, and other resources.
