WHAT ARE FINE JEWELLERY TECHNIQUES?

The many different styles, designs and methods of making jewellery jewellery, along with the variety of gemstones and precious metals now available require the Fine Jeweller to develop a broad knowledge base to draw upon at the start of the design and fabrication process.

 

Jewellery componets are made by using traditional techniques such as Drawing, Filing, Piercing, Folding, Hammering, Soldering, Forming, Casting, Diamond Mounting and many others. 

 

Methods of fabrication may need additional knowledge in the following areas:

 

  • Fixings

  • Adding Colour

  • Mark Making / Decorative Techniques

  • Forming Techniques

  • Using precious or semi precious stones

  • Finishing; Burnishing and Polishing.

 

Other techniques such as Laser Welding are also an option for the jeweller,  depending on the design and the chosen metal or material.
