Jewelry Designers Terms to Know

Jewelry designing and crafting can be a difficult, complicated process. Diamonds must be painstakingly cut. Complex pendants must be meticulously shaped. Whether you are crafting homemade earrings or hiring an expert to create a custom piece, following are some terms you will want to be familiar with.

  • Anodizing – Anodizing, or coating metal with oxide, is decorative and protective. These coatings are tough, durable, and repel wear. Aluminum is commonly anodized, though this can be done to more precious metals like silver and gold.
  • Dead Soft – This refers to metal that is soft and flexible. Bracelets and necklace chains, for instance, require dead soft metal so intricate curves can be made.
  • Findings – These are used to connect parts of jewelry. Wires and beads often need findings for connection purposes. Findings can also be present for aesthetic reasons.
  • Gauge – A gauge is a unit of measurement for metal sheets or wires. Unlike most units of measurements, a larger gauge indicates a thinner material.
  • Half Hard – Half hard metal is less malleable than dead soft metal. Jewelry that requires bending but not intricate curves, such as rings, requires half hard metal.
  • Karat – Karat refers to the purity of gold. Twenty-four karat gold is pure. Regularly worn items, like wedding or engagement rings, are not often pure gold since it is softer.
  • Pattern Wire – This thicker, wider wire has patterns embedded into it. Pattern wire is commonly used in bracelet design.
  • Snap Setting – This is a setting for a cut gemstone. Unlike other settings, snap settings do not need to be folded over the edges stones. Rings and earrings can have snap settings. A properly sized snap setting would allow a diamond to be fully displayed on an engagement ring.
  • Troy Ounce – Troy ounces are traditionally used to measure precious metals.
