Precision Balances

Precision balances are frequently used for weighing jewelry, precious stones and metals. With up to 0.001g readabilities, our precision balances are capable of weighing almost all types of jewelry from small earrings to necklaces.

Alongside typical gram measurement, some of our electronic precision balances and scales feature built in carat measurement for easily calculating the value of jewels and gold for commercial selling.

Note: In some countries, trade certified scales are required when selling jewelry by weight. Please consult your local weighing representative (NTEP, NRCS or EC) for guidelines in your location.

Many of our precision balances are portable and compact, perfect for the jeweler on the move. For more information on any of our precision balance ranges please contact us.
