Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most jeweler opportunities?

after being a diamond setter for the last 50 years
i see a definite decline in employment and opportunities for self employment in my particular specialty.in my opinion there are four factors contributing towards the shrinking volume of domestic work in the trade.
1.growing demand for inexpensive asian labor.
2. the poor current economic situation.
3. the lack of properly trained craftsmen.
4. the pay scales are to low to attract future crafts men to the bench.
