Don’t take these terms the wrong way.

Like every profession, the jewelry business has its own terminology. Much of it, of course, is technical and doesn’t make much sense to people outside the industry.

In fact, some of a jeweler’s language could even be taken the wrong way by someone outside the field.

We’ve compiled this fun list of terminology that might sound ribald, if you don’t know what it means.

You might want to be careful with these terms. Someone could get offended — or at least come down with a case of the giggles.

  • Cleavage
  • Girdle
  • Semi-Mount
  • Bodycolor
  • Abrasion
  • Bearding
  • Cavity
  • Internal Graining
  • Twinning Wisp

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
