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

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
