Here is the perfect Jewellery Guide
I've been working in the jewellery industry for several years and always struggled to find all the important information when serving clients.
Have you had a customer asking about wedding anniversary gifts for a certain year? or a Ring size conversion from the US to the UK size?
What normally happens if we don't know the answer we have to use a search engine to find out for them, that may take a few minutes and customers might start to doubt if you knew where to find the answer. The longer it takes the less trust the client is going to have in your knowledge.
That's why I created the perfect Jewellery Guide
What is in this document?
Diamond Carat Conversion chart for classic shapes
The very important MM to CARAT size conversion for Round, Princess, Oval, Pear, Marquise, Emerald, Radiant and Cushion cut Diamonds for up to 3 carats on most shapes.
This is the Modern Anniversary Gift guide from the 1st year - Gold to the 80th - Ruby Jubilee
Some birthstones have more than one Gem, so I have collected the Classic Birthstones chart and added it to this Ultimate Guide
What length is a Matinee? Well it could be from 20 inches to 24 inches (50cm - 60cm)
Ring Size conversion chart
Very often clients would only know their European or American size, here I've included the most popular Ring Size charts. UK, US and EU
Diamond Colour is one of the most often asked questions in the jewellery trade.
From the extremely rare FLAWLESS, to the very often seen INCLUDED clarity. Most jewellers haven't even seen a Flawless diamond
Diamond cut is very important as if you have a diamond with a POOR cut it might look lifeless, the little diagram shows how light enters the Diamond and reflects at the facets to bounce back to the top for maximum Fire and Brightness
You might not get asked by a client how deep a diamond forms or what temperature or age, but its a great fact to know as sometimes it might help you with a sale if compared to a Lab-grown Diamond
Mohs Hardness Scale
The Mohs hardness scale is a perfect example when purchasing Gemstone for daily wear
Check your hallmarks. When buying or selling jewellery, make sure it's hallmarked by an Assay office. It's your guarantee of purity in metals.
