Dear All, A customer has ordered three rings custom made in platinum,
and saw a ring at another jewelers that had a finish she wanted me to
duplicate. When she asked them as to the finish, she was told that it
was a “pumice” finish, which she described as giving the ring a more
antique look. I am unfamilar with the term, and would go look for
myself, however they are located about a thousand miles from me.
Have any of you run across this term before? I am in the middle of
remodeling my work area, and can’t lay my hands on my reference
books, so I am hoping someone out there will be more helpful than my
little dictionary, which tells me that pumice is “a light, spongy rock
used for cleaning”.
Thank you in advance,
