The format, type size and structure of this work is intended to make it an easy reference tool. It can take its place on a desk or at the bench, where a tool belongs.
This book is not intended as a how-to-text. Many fine books are available which provide instruction in techniques. The intent of this text is to serve as a look-up book. It is intended as an easy way to find a formula, definition or mathematical data.
The author has compiled a comprehensive reference of all the data used in years of classroom teaching, at the bench, and speaking with his colleagues. Some of it is easily found in any jewelry text. However, much of the information is difficult to find, some nearly impossible without encyclopedic references.
Most jewelry texts ignore gemology and legal information entirely. Material newly generated for this text (example, ring blank size strips) has been tested over the years in his own workshop and classroom.
