Polishing is a finishing process for smoothing the jewellery’s surface to enhance the look of an item.
Polishing is usually a multistage process and can be carried out with sandpaper or on an electric polisher. The first stage starts with a rough abrasive and each subsequent stage uses a finer abrasive until the desired finish is achieved. The rough pass removes surface defects such as pits, nicks, lines and scratches. The finer abrasives leave very thin lines that are not visible to the naked eye.
