The jewelry industry has a long tradition and a relevant role in the Italian economy. The sector is organised according to the productive arrangement of the industrial district. As for the jewelry district in Campania, the present work pursues the twofold objective of identifying the factors inducing enterprises’affiliation to the Tarì, the principal consortium of the district, and the consequent benefits. The empirical analysis documents that enterprises affiliated to the Tarì are larger and their costs have a greater incidence on the total level of production compared to the other enterprises. The principal benefit of participation is the reduction of the production costs, particularly of the costs for the services. However, there are no benefits in terms of revenue growth. Some implications for regional policy makers are discussed in the conclusions.
