What is a goldsmith?

A goldsmith is trained to design, create, and repair jewelry. This includes designing wedding and engagement rings, crafting custom-made gold jewelry, or restoring a bracelet in gold, silver, or other precious metals. Often, the jewelry is adorned with gemstones, semi-precious stones, and decorative techniques. As a result, the profession of a goldsmith is a truly artisanal craft.

What does a goldsmith do?

As mentioned above, a goldsmith company specializes in creating jewelry and ornaments from gold, silver, or other precious metals. The process of crafting and manipulating these precious metals is labor-intensive. In the past, they were forged and shaped using a hammer and anvil, but nowadays there are modern methods for jewelry making as well. A goldsmith works with specialized tools to shape and manipulate the gold or silver, often requiring the metal to be heated in most cases.

What is the difference between a goldsmith and a jeweler?

A goldsmith is not the same as a jeweler, although Design Helga Kordt specializes in both fields. A jeweler is trained to appraise the value of jewelry and to sell a selection of jewelry and ornaments. However, it is the goldsmith who can design, create, and repair jewelry themselves. Often, a jeweler will employ a goldsmith or collaborate with one. Jeweler & Goldsmith Design Helga Kordt started their own goldsmith company over 40 years ago.
