Some of the most overlooked parts of jewelry are jewelry findings. Using good quality findings will not only add to the jewelry's elegance, but they will help your jewelry pieces last a long time. Meanwhile, if you skimp on good-quality findings, you may end up with an overall poor product.

And what's the point of spending a lot of money on expensive beads and stones, when they may fall off or break because of faulty findings.

First, you may wonder what jewelry findings are. These are the small pieces and parts used to create the jewelry piece, including ear wires, stone settings and clasps for necklaces. The pieces can be made out of: precious metals such as gold, palladium, platinum, rhodium and silver; precious metal alloys like colored golds, platinum sterling, Britannia silver and electrum; or base metal alloys like brass, bronze, copper, pewter, stainless steel and titanium.

Clasps can come in whole clasps and ear wires - either ready-made earrings or earring parts - wedding bands, ring shanks and simple engagement rings. Bails, loops and jumper rings are also findings that can be simple or complicated for hanging charms or pendants. If you look for a findings wholesaler you will discover plenty of choices to create the jewelry style you want.

Findings are also used for stone settings. Sometimes you will have to custom make the setting, however, there are many varieties of shapes and sizes that are available to set precious stones in. Buying these stone settings from a wholesaler can be economical and worthwhile if you're creating a large stock.

As you can see, jewelry findings are important to the overall quality of the jewelry piece. They serve as a foundation to the piece and ultimately the moving parts of the jewelry, such as a clasp. All too often do you see jewelry fall apart or become useless after a clasp breaks. An earring falls out because the earring wire becomes warped. Buying good findings can prevent this from happening.

Like purchasing beautiful beads, stones and wires to create your elegant jewelry, buying high-quality findings is important. Although they may not provide the sparkle of a diamond, they can provide the durability of one. So if you want to create a perfect, long-lasting piece of jewelry, make sure to buy quality findings.
