What is a Jobbing Parcel?
Members of the UK jewellery industry, will probably be familiar with the diamond term “Jobbing Parcel”. To explain, a jobbing parcel refers to a collection or parcel of small polished diamonds, used for replacement work by jewellery setters. When diamonds are lost from engagement rings and diamond rings, replacement diamonds need to be matched and fitted by means of replacement.
Replacing diamonds from rings
Rings, missing a diamond, typically find their way to a jewellery shop. From there, the ring is usually sent to a specialist workshop to estimate the cost of replacing the diamond. A further step involves sending the ring to a diamond merchant to quote for a replacement diamond. Many jewellery workshops avoid this further step by carrying small parcels (sometimes of mixed sizes) – suitable for such replacement work.
Easy online purchase
Carrying large amounts of small, polished diamonds, we have recently added a small range of diamond parcels suitable for the jewellers bench. Many can be custom sorted by size or even by quality. Our jobbing parcel contains a mixture of sizes, evenly distributed across a range of mm. sizes.
