The true measure of value of precious jewelry is portrayed by quality workmanship. Anyone wearing jewelry of good workmanship will receive comments from admirers about how beautiful, unique and delicate the design is. Price, brand name, and type of material used, usually, only play a secondary role in such conversations.

Measure of Quality of Workmanship
Close resemblance to the original design
Quality workmanship will ensure that the handcrafted piece will closely resemble
the original design or picture provided by the customer, including any requested
amendments. What disappointment will a customer experience if the resulting product
is quite different, either in design or in delicateness of work, from the envisioned
piece! While the goldsmith cannot read a buyer’s mind, a good and detailed
design or picture should provide for sufficient input to give him an idea of the
Quality workmanship will ensure that the finest possible design is produced,
if so specified by the customer. This is particularly important if the design
includes many delicate details. It should be understood, however, that handmade
jewelry requires use of relatively soft metals. Super fine filigri type jewelry
require hardened metal alloys (or else lack sufficient stability) which are
less suitable for jewelry produced by hand craft.
Fine but stable/strong setting
Quality workmanship will ensure that the setting for the gems is stable and
strong but nonetheless fine and hardly visible. Unless otherwise specified by
the customer, the gem usually is the centre of attraction, while the precious
metal setting only serves to anchor the gem. A very fine setting usually gives
the appearance of a diamond floating on or within the jewelry piece.
Quality workmanship will ensure that the jewelry pieces created are unique.
Such uniqueness results both from a) the creativity of the goldsmith in producing
a design, and b) the fact that slight imperfections and irregularities are part
of the design of any handcrafted jewelry creations (a distinguishing feature
compared to machine-made craft)
