Anatomy of jewelry: metallic components
Keywords:Jewel, goldsmith, jewelry, foundry
Literature in Portuguese on goldsmithing, even if it is an ancestral human activity, is still scarce. On the other hand, the Brazilian academic community is taking its first steps in the production of content related to this theme. In order to contribute to the production of knowledge, an academic experiment was carried out in the discipline of Jewelry and Jewelry Assembly of the Gemology Course of the Center for Economic and Legal Sciences of the Federal University of Espírito Santo (CCJE/UFES) which involved the enrolled students. The experiment had its genesis in a hypothesis of the classification and ordering of the metallic components of the jewelry that was elaborated from the goldsmith practices adopted by the jeweler Mauro Cateb. The hypothesis was submitted to verification by students in semester 2022-1 at CCJE/ UFES. The notable points identified in the attempts to produce the components in the laboratory were recorded to compose a proposal for the anatomy of the jewelry considering its metallic dimension.
