Diamond Terminology That Sounds Dirty, But Isn’t

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

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
