Sometimes, you'll hear your jeweler refer to him-or-herself as a "bench jeweler." That can mean several things. Here are some of the places you'll find bench jewelers:
- Making jewelry other jewelry companies from their own shop.
- Working in jewelry stores, doing repairs, custom jewelry, and appraisals.
- Designing jewelry that they produce on their own, one at a time.
- Designing collections of jewelry that they produce with the help of a production assistant or a small production team.
