My partner and I manage/own a jewelry shop for over 27 years. Though used to work in mostly gold and diamonds, most of our orders now are made in sterling silver. Our shop is situated on the seventh floor of a 48th street business building in one of the biggest jewelry centers of the US. Currently we employ a jeweler, polisher, diamond setter, cutter/piercer, and receptionist. I am the designer.

A short description of how we make monograms: the jeweler melts sterling silver ingots; then we roll the silver plate to the desired thickness. A sketch is drawn out then glued to the silver plate when a piercer drills the spots that will soon be cut out. The piercer then cuts along the sketch following its outline, followed by the engraver who outlines the overlapping initials. The unfinished piece is then polished and a chain soldered. The entire process takes about 2 hours of accumulated labor from start to finish.
