Assembly is the process wherein the components of a piece of jewelry are assembled together. For instance, two toned rings or rings with mounts would require sub-assemblies. After the metal pieces have been sorted, they are transferred to the assembly department, where the links are connected together. After the piece has been assembled, it is measured to confirm that it is the correct length and the number of stones is correct based on the order. The assembled links are then soldered together and any locks needed are attached as well as any last minute filing or touch ups.
