AzurreBella Jewelry

Wasn't sure what to expect, but teacher was very knowledgeable, staff friendly. Learned way more than thought, will be back if possible, interested in classes of Jewelry Design I and ASJ Certified Bench Jeweler.

I attended other educational institutions, tried another jewelry course, but it was not nearly as good – more a “fly-by-night”. I recommend American School of Jewelry.


Elizabeth Horejsi

Gold & Diamond Exchange

I was very nervous coming in, but by the first day I was excited and didn’t want to leave. The classes offered more information than I expected, the instructor gave each student personal attention, answered all the questions without me having to ask him.

My recommendation to other students, was better than I expected, I'll be back for more classes like Jewelry Design I.

I rate this school as The Best; the classes were dynamic and fun.

I came here not knowing what to expect. My expectations were blown away.  This was the best vacation time I ever took from work.

It was great, I never realized we could do so much in one week. Time flew by, it was hard work but very rewarding.

I was provided with all of the tools needed for the class, was the best class I ever attended.
