Findings – Jewelry Definition

Finding, Earring top


Findings are any of the small, functional, and handy pieces of pre-made jewelry parts that combine to make a finished piece of jewelry.

Clasps, bails, earring posts, heads, and gold balls are all examples of findings.

Findings are like the “parts” you’d find in the plumbing department of a hardware store.  If you were a plumber, you wouldn’t want to have to make your own valve.  It would be much more convenient and cost effective to buy one pre-made at the store.
