Recognizing Craftsmanship in Quality Fine Jewelry

Half a century ago, all fine jewelry was hand crafted by an experienced jeweler. Unfortunately, in the modern world many claim to offer quality jewelry while delivering minimum standard, mass produced items. We, at Royal Design Fine Jewelry, are proud to provide the world’s most luxurious diamond accessories for our clients. Are you concerned about investing in fine jewelry due to the decline of craftsmanship? Here are some tips on how you can ensure that your next treasure provides high value and lasting durability.

Precious Metal Should be Stamped

All jewelry items made from precious metal should be stamped. Gold items should indicate whether it is 16K, 18K or 24k. Platinum, silver and other popular materials should also be appropriately stamped. If you cannot find these markings, then there’s a chance the item is made from an alloy that is less desirable. 

Durable Settings

The settings on your rings, earrings, pendants and tennis bracelets are very important. Poor quality settings won’t stay in place long term and may even cause you to lose gemstones. Look for jewelry items that have strong prongs, good connections and straight channels. If the settings have been constructed by an expert, you will reduce the risk of losing or damaging your valuable diamonds and luxury gems. 

Quality Diamonds and Gemstones

Most diamonds and gemstones look beautiful from afar. However, professional jewelers are trained to see flaws up close. If you truly want to maximize your investment, it’s important to purchase diamonds and gemstones that are valuable and high quality. Make sure that the diamonds have been certified by a well trusted organization, including the following:

  • GIA – Gemological Institute of America
  • AGS – American Gemological Society
  • EGL – European Gemological Laboratory
  • IGI – International Gemological Institute 

Beautiful Finish

A beautiful finish is also a feature that should be present in quality fine jewelry. The shine and brilliance of diamonds and precious metals are their most desirable characteristic. Be sure that there aren’t any major flaws like bumps or unintentional twists in the band. If you see any marks left from soldering, unpolished areas on the metal, or an irregularly shaped gemstone, these are all red flags. If you want jewelry that will retain its value and look amazing for many years to come, the original finish needs to be stunning.
