Jewelry Help

Q: What is the best jewelry scale for me?

A: This will largely depend on what you require a jewelry scale for. If you are a jeweler working remotely, then a portable jewelry scale such as the Highland portable precision balance or Core compact balance may be the best choice. Alternatively, digital pocket scales and compact balances can be used for general weighing on the move, whilst trade approved scales (NRCS approved in South Africa) will be required for selling gold by weight.

If you need a scale to weigh large amounts of scrap gold or jewels to establish a price by weight, then you will need a scale with a larger weighing capacity such as a trade approved bench scale or platform scale.

When working with fine jewelry or gems where precision is essential, you made need more specialist weighing equipment such as an analytical balance or microbalance which have readabilities starting from 0.1mg up to 0.001mg.
