Filigree is a delicate work of twisted gold or silver soldered together which forms an open design used with jewellery. Filigree often resembles lace.


A filling seals fractures or cavities in a gem. In fracture filling, surface‐reaching breaks are filled to conceal them and improve the gem’s appearance. In cavity filling, larger surface openings are filled for similar purposes. Fracture fillers include colourless oils, natural and synthetic resins, and glass. Cavity fillings are usually glass or plastic. Fracture filling is common for emeralds, and cavity filling is most frequent with rubies; but both treatments occasionally appear in a number of gems.


Jewellery findings include components such as bails, clasps and setting heads.


Fineness represents the amount of precious metal in an alloy, usually measured in parts per thousand. For example, an item marked Pt950 is 950 parts platinum and 50 parts alloying metal.

Hinged Back

The hinged back is very popular in hoop earrings. This back style features a hinged piece of metal that goes through the ear and snaps into a latch on the opposite side of the earring.


An ideal‐cut diamond features a series of prisms and mirrors. The way light is returned out of the top of the diamond (not its sides or bottom) determines how brilliant and fiery a diamond is. “Ideal” is not just an adjective ‐ it’s become the industry standard for the set of proportions, ratios and angles known as the American Ideal Cut.


An imitation is a gem look‐alike. Unlike a synthetic, an imitation (or simulant) doesn’t have the same chemistry, structure, or properties as the gem it resembles. Appearance is the only similarity.


An imperfection is a term for a negative clarity characteristic, such as a carbon inclusion in a diamond.


An inclusion is the natural birthmark inside a stone that can affect its flow of light and also add uniqueness and character. Inclusions vary in size, shape, quantity, position and colour.

Independent certification is a process where diamonds, regardless of the seller, have received an appraisal of value from a trusted and authoritative source outside of the organization.

Invisible Setting

An invisible setting features several stones mounted together by metal beneath the stones. The metal cannot be seen from above, making the stones appear as if they have no setting at all.


Ion plating is one the most advanced protective surface finishing processes. Ion plating makes gold and other metals more durable, more wear resistant and also has a higher brightness. It can also add colour to a metal.


Iridescence is the rainbow‐like colours that sometimes appear when light is reflected and refracted through structural layers.


Irradiation is the science of exposing a gem to high‐energy radiation or bombardment with subatomic particles to change its colour. This treatment is routine for smoky quartz and blue topaz. Except in very rare cases, the treatment leaves no significant radioactivity.


Karat is the standard measurement of gold purity. Pure gold is 24 karat and therefore, the amount of gold in an alloy is based on 24 parts. For example, 14K is 14 parts gold and 10 parts alloying metal.

Natural Fancy Colour Diamonds

Natural fancy colour diamonds feature a deep body colour, including brown, yellow, blue, violet, orange, pink and red. Fancy colour diamonds are unusual and therefore highly valued. They are rated Z+ on the colour scale and have nine saturation levels from Faint to Fancy Vivid.

Natural Gem

Natural gemstones are those that are mined from the earth rather than created. Natural gemstones are extremely rare. This often adds to their value and appeal. Synthetic or lab-created gemstones are made of the same material as natural gemstones, so they share the same chemical and optical properties.


Near‐colourless diamonds have little or no colour visible to the naked eye. Near‐colourless diamonds are classified as G, H, I or J on the colour scale.

Nick Setting

The nick setting is similar to the channel setting. Stones are placed in a row, with metal bordering either side. In a nick setting, small prongs are nicked from the surrounding metal to secure the stones.

Screw backs are typically used for diamond earrings. This secure backing features small metal backs that screw onto the post.


A semi‐mounting is a ring that has everything except for the center stone. A semi‐mounting allows customers to add the stone of their choice to complete the ring.

Semiprecious Gem

Semiprecious is a traditional classification that includes all gems other than “precious” gems (diamond, emerald, ruby, sapphire, and pearl). Most professionals believe that the categories are misleading, and the term semiprecious is unfairly negative. But both terms (precious and semiprecious) are still widely used.


A setting is the way in which a gem is held. Prong, bezel and channel are all types of settings.


Silver is a type of metal used for jewellery. Silver is often combined with other metals to increase its strength. Sterling silver consists of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy.
