Scales and balances are utilized throughout the jewelry and precious metals industry. Common applications include buying and selling gold or other metals, designing custom jewelry, or simply monitoring weight for quality assurance. The units of measure that are generally asked for are grams, troy ounces, grains, pennyweight, and ounces. Also, a desired readability based on grams can range from 0.1 gram to 0.001 gram. It is important to note that if your application does include buying or selling based on weight, you will need an NTEP approved jewelry scale to be compliant with industry requirements.
