While choosing jewellery we always have an in-depth look at the design of the jewellery and then we buy it. But have we ever thought about the process it go through and how the finish is given to the final ring jewellery?
Don’t worry; we are here to give you a quick go-through about the finishes used on jewellery. So, for you all, we have listed down different finishes commonly used in the rings we wear every day.
Polished finish is one of the most commonly used finishes for the ring; it is shiny and reflective in nature. It has no texture and beautifully highlights the brilliance of the metal.
After the shiny finish, comes the satin finish. Shiny finishes are also smooth to the touch just like polished finish ring but are in matte. It is kind of like a mirror that is fogged up.
Brushed finish is similar to that of the satin finish. Brushed finish is more of a durable finish and stands up to everyday wear. Satin finish has no texture and on the other hand, brushed finish has a texture of a wire brush.
In the sandblasting finish, the bead blaster unit use bead media to etch and texture the finish. After sandblasting, the application of light or shallow finishes will show easily.
It is an angle cutting; it requires diamond tool head that can make extremely precise, sharp cuts in the surface of the metal. Diamond cutting removes material from the surface to create mirror-like facets that catch the light.
Hammered finish is a series of small depressions in the metal. The finish is usually two finishes in one, also present to create depressions that stimulate the look of classic hand-wrought jewelry.
Florentine is basically a consistent depth of the engraved surface. It is not commonly used and is expensive as well. It is a distinct termination of pattern at the bottom portion of a ring shank.
So guys, we hope the glimpse on the types of finishes is helpful for your understanding and next time when you buy jewellery don’t forget to have a look at its finishing as well.
