What Makes Handmade Jewelry Unique?
You will find that true handmade jewelry is typically not identical to other pieces of the same design. Intricate patterning made by hand-hammering or chasing makes it pretty easy to tell handmade from manufactured even for an untrained eye. Examine each individual component; you can often clearly see how they are attached and constructed.
Machine-made jewelry typically looks more rigid and uniform. Solder joints are usually done by arc or laser welders and frequently less durable than hand-soldered joints. Even though handmade jewelry might appear to be slightly flawed in the eyes of the casual observer, high quality handmade jewelry should nonetheless last a lifetime. You might find this sup rising, but more often than not, manufactured jewelry has a higher probability of breaking as compared to handmade. Much of the mass-produced jewelry sold today as “handmade” may indeed be handmade, for example in department stores, but that does not necessarily mean it is of the highest quality.
Most jewelry manufacturers that specialize in mass-produced jewelry usually run on a piecemeal or quota based system, incentivising higher output, usually resulting in lower quality. The more you make, the more you get paid or you get to keep your job. Look for handmade jewelry that is not mass-produced — not available in large quantities — such as those featured on our website. Quality jewelry that is handmade will not only have the artisan’s mark, but also have the reputation and guarantee attached to the finished piece. Fortunately, quality and uniqueness are typically apparent to the careful observer.
