Jewelry finish, or jewelry texture, refers to the exterior surface treatment applied to a jewelry piece. Most commonly seen in wedding bands, finishes can transform ordinary jewelry into something extraordinary. The different finishes can be applied to a variety of different metals including white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, platinum, sterling silver, or stainless steel. Here are some of the most common finishes we can apply to your fine jewelry:

  • Matte: A non-reflective finish most suitable for those looking to avoid shinny jewelry.
