In this way client will accrue jewellery that can become an integral part of their wardrobe and remain cherished possession for many years and perhaps many generations. The first and foremost thing to be remembered is:
Preferences of design
First important point is that the person for whom we are designing is a male or female. Knowing this would make the work easier and a designer can design the piece accordingly. We must also concern on age factor i.e., kid, youth and aged while designing. Other than this we should focus on the variety of jewellery to be constructed i.e. ring, earring, pendant, brooch, necklace etc…? This is the most important point which needs to be remembered during designing any jewellery because lacking here might cause a complete mess in further designing.
If we have decided this then numerous variations are there to be taken care of, i.e. it should be a real or costume jewellery.
Theme & Occasion:
After deciding the type of jewellery a designer should identify costumer’s interest in design. Sometime costumer orders all designs on a particular theme for example love, music, ocean etc….
So we must design on those themes by keeping the latest trend in concern. Along with this the occasion on which costumer is going to wear it matters a lot, it may be Engagement, Wedding , Birthday, Anniversary, Valentine’s Day, Deepawali, Id, Christmas, official gathering etc…
Size of Jewellery Piece:
Some jewellery pieces needed a certain size to wear i.e. Ring, Bangles, Bracelets, Necklaces, etc. Ring Size may be 5 up to 13 us (15.7 to 22.2 mm). Use a ring that fits you to determine your ring size. Place your ring over the nearest size circle. The internal authority of the ring should line up with the outer edge of the sphere then if your ring seems to fit between two sizes, buy the larger size. Women’s Standard Necklace Sizes can be 16″ Choker length , 17-18″ Will reach the collarbone and bead string- 30″ Below the chest and for male’s Standard Chain Sizes can be 18″ Base of the neck -for smaller neck sizes, 20″ to collarbone -The most common length for the average size man, 22″to 24″ A few inches below the collarbone.

If customer wants to buy gold jewellery, the first thing to keep in mind about is the word karat. The karat is the component used to represent the amount of gold in the piece of jewelry. Pure gold is set at 24 karats but there is no 24-karat gold jewelry because pure gold is too pliable to be fashioned into any form of jewelry.
The diamond Jewellery is popular in 18-k (75% gold), 16-k (66.67% gold), 14-k (about 58% gold), and 12-k (50% gold). And purity of Silver jewellery is 92.5.
