Finding (jewelcrafting)

Jewellery findings are the parts used to join jewellery components together to form a completed article.[1]

List of findings

  • Clasps to complete necklaces and bracelets
  • Earwires to link an earring to the wearer's ear
  • Ring blanks for making finger rings
  • Bails, metal loops, and jump rings, for completing jewellery. Jump rings can be used by themselves for chains
  • Pin stems and brooch assemblies
  • Tuxedo stud findings, letters of the alphabet, cluster settings, metal beads and balls

Findings are available in all the jewellery metals—sterling silver, plated silver, gold, niobium, titanium, aluminium, and copper.
