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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
