Jewelry Glossary with Photos: A-Z

Posted by Laurie Zeiden on


World of Eccentricity & Charm has developed a glossary of common jewelry terms. It's a guide for both new and experienced collectors. Use it to find the descriptive words you need to describe your antique or vintage jewelry. Just click on any letter to open a glossary page.


Omissions? Mistakes? Ambiguities? Feel free to send me a message. This is a work in progress and I plan to keep working to improve it.

Thanks to all my jewelry friends who have contributed photos and information.
