How to Make Gold Jewelry. Serious enthusiasts can learn to make gold jewelry at home with wax molds and other jewelry equipment. Gold jewelry is more expensive and time-consuming to make than other types of jewelry, but the rewards of selling your own jewelry or giving treasured handmade gifts can more than make up for the difficulty involved.

Carve out a pattern in your wax with a razor or utility knife to form a mold for the piece of jewelry you want to create. The pattern should be equal to the length, width and depth you want for your finished jewelry. Alternatively, you can use another mold (if available) or a copy of the jewelry you want to make and press it down into your (softened) wax to make an impression.

In India, gold is much more than just a yellow metal. Indians are also emotionally attached to gold and that is why they strongly believe in making gold jewelry not just as an ornament for long-term, but also as a great backup resource at the times of financial lows.

However, while doing jewelry shopping, you will find that every shop has different pricing attached to the gold jewelry. Even when, the rate of gold is same as per its purity (in carat) and weight (in grams), but still there is no standard pricing for every gold item in the market.

That is why every city has price differences even for the same weight of the gold item. However, there is only a slight difference in the prices across the cities, as there are other major factors which affect the final price of jewelry items, such as making charges, taxes and purity of gold. That is why it is important to know which formula is used by the jewelers to calculate the final price of jewelry.

Final price of the jewelry = Price of gold per gram (22 carat or 18 carat) X (Weight in grams) + making charges/gram + Goods and Services Tax (GST) on (Price of jewelry + making charges).

Purity: The purity of gold is measured in the term of carat. In gold, 24 carat is considered as the purest form. However, 24 carat is not considered as useful for making jewelry. Generally, 18 carat and 22 carat is used for jewelry making. The higher the purity the more expensive the jewelry becomes.

Making Charges: Making charges is something which is not the same for every jeweler. Generally, making charges vary from 8% to 35% of the total gold rate. Buyers purchasing jewelry always have the opportunity to bargain big on the making charges which can further change the final price of gold jewelry.

Studded Jewelry: At times the gold jewelry is studded with precious gemstones. When you purchase it, the main price of gold will change if the price is measured weight-wise. One should deduct the price of the stone or gem from the total price of the, so that they can easily find the actual gold price. The cost of gemstones should be added or disclosed separately.

So, next time when you are buying gold jewelry, do not forget to keep a few things in mind while purchasing gold to avoid being tricked. Apart from knowing the purity of gold, it is also important to know about the exchange policies, making charges, and jewelry item warranty. Also, remember to ask for a transparent break-up of the bill, explaining all the charges and costs that have been included for ascertaining the final price of the gold jewelry.

Jewellery (Commonwealth English) or jewelry (American English) consists of decorative items worn for personal adornment, such as brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, pendants, bracelets, and cufflinks. Jewellery may be attached to the body or the clothes. From a western perspective, the term is restricted to durable ornaments, excluding flowers for example. For many centuries metal such as gold often combined with gemstones, has been the normal material for jewellery, but other materials such as glass, shells and other plant materials may be used.

The word jewellery itself is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicised from the Old French "jouel",[2] and beyond that, to the Latin word "jocale", meaning plaything. In British English, Indian English, New Zealand English, Hiberno-English, Australian English, and South African English it is spelled jewellery, while the spelling is jewelry in American English.[3] Both are used in Canadian English, though jewellery prevails by a two to one margin. In French and a few other European languages the equivalent term, joaillerie, may also cover decorated metalwork in precious metal such as objets d'art and church items, not just objects worn on the person.

Beads are frequently used in jewellery. These may be made of glass, gemstones, metal, wood, shells, clay and polymer clay. Beaded jewellery commonly encompasses necklaces, bracelets, earrings, belts and rings. Beads may be large or small; the smallest type of beads used are known as seed beads, these are the beads used for the "woven" style of beaded jewellery. Seed beads are also used in an embroidery technique where they are sewn onto fabric backings to create broad collar neck pieces and beaded bracelets. Bead embroidery, a popular type of handwork during the Victorian era, is enjoying a renaissance in modern jewellery making. Beading, or beadwork, is also very popular in many African and indigenous North American cultures.

For platinum, gold, and silver jewellery, there are many techniques to create finishes. The most common are high-polish, satin/matte, brushed, and hammered. High-polished jewellery is the most common and gives the metal a highly reflective, shiny look. Satin, or matte finish reduces the shine and reflection of the jewellery, and this is commonly used to accentuate gemstones such as diamonds. Brushed finishes give the jewellery a textured look and are created by brushing a material (similar to sandpaper) against the metal, leaving "brush strokes". Hammered finishes are typically created by using a rounded steel hammer and hammering the jewellery to give it a wavy texture.

Some jewellery is plated to give it a shiny, reflective look or to achieve a desired colour. Sterling silver jewellery may be plated with a thin layer of 0.999 fine silver (a process known as flashing) or may be plated with rhodium or gold. Base metal costume jewellery may also be plated with silver, gold, or rhodium for a more attractive finish.

Some religions have specific rules or traditions surrounding jewellery (or even prohibiting it) and many religions have edicts against excessive display. Islam, for instance, considers the wearing of gold by men as Haraam.[20] The majority of Islamic jewellery was in the form of bridal dowries, and traditionally was not handed down from generation to generation; instead, on a woman's death it was sold at the souk and recycled or sold to passers-by. Islamic jewellery from before the 19th century is thus exceedingly rare.[21] 041b061a72
