Every Gem is meticulously polished to ensure an evenly smooth surface as any imperfection is revealed through the paper-thin leaf, gilding performed in a dust and static-free environment. Only an expert artisan can achieve the optimal leaf veins and the desired sheen of lacquer with consistency, each finish is unique.
