COMMON QUESTIONS

Finishing generally refers to the final stages of jewellery manufacture, but it can include most any surface treatment, bright polish, texture, or other mechanical or chemical process. Polishing specifically refers to the ultimate or final smoothing of a surface to obtain a high lustre.

There are many different types of finishes: satin (matte), brushed, mirror or high polish, textured, patina, patina and high polish (or other finish) plated, etched, sandblasted, hammered, engraving, and torch effects, as well as electroplating.

Plating is the process of adding a thin metal coating on top of another metal using electrolysis. Adding a thin layer of precious metal over a piece of jewellery can improve the finish.

Stone setting is the process of securely attaching (setting) gemstones into jewellery.
