Jeweling is a popular term among those who want to achieve the last and final step of finishing polishing a car. Although it is not certain where the term came from, if done properly it does add depth to the paintwork. It can also be written as “jewelling”.

Why jeweling When you polish a surface, you might have to use more then one step to finish the paintwork to the best it can be. Most people will agree that using a finishing polish on a finishing pad will be the last step. But for those who really want to go all out, you can use jeweling to add more gloss and depth to the finish.

What is jeweling Jeweling is the act of applying a finishing polish on a finishing pad on very low speed. The rotation speed of the rotary or DA is turned down to its lowest setting. Then a clean finishing pad is used to slowly work in the finishing polish. This step takes a lot of time, because you still need to work in the polish. Although the difference in gloss is almost not noticeable, it does add depth to the paintwork. Because of the relatively small improvement (compared with the time it takes), this step has little use for those who charge their customer an hourly rate, or those who need to do a certain amount of cars per day. Jeweling isn’t always written in the same way, it can also be written as “jewelling” (American English).

How to do jeweling The steps for jeweling are not difficult, it just takes a lot of time. Make sure you’ve done all the polishing steps Take out a clean finishing pad Turn the speed setting of your rotary or DA down to the lowest setting Apply a few dots of your finishing polish with the lowest cutting power Slowly work in the finishing polish (Working in the polish is done by the amount of times that the abrasive particle is moved over the surface, because of the slow setting on the machine, it will take much more time for the polishing pad to make the same amount of rotations than normal. If the setting is 10 times lower then normal, you’re working-time increases 10 times.) When finishing jeweling, wipe off the polish and follow up with a wipe down with IPA or similar Tips and tricks

What is a ‘clean surface’

Our cars are parked outside for the majority of the time and as such a result are bombarded by a plethora of harmful substances. These can include dirt, ferrous particles (containing iron), industrial fallout, contaminants, bird mess, acid rain, road tar, tree sap, brake dust and more. These embed themselves into the paint and clear coat and over time become harmful and discolour and diminish your paints shine.

Simply washing your car will not remove all of these harmful substances and, whilst your car may look clean, deep down it is far from it! Adding a layer of wax onto this contaminated surface will provide much less protection and shine than the product was designed to achieve and you will find it much harder to apply, remove and subsequently maintain thereafter.

A ’clean surface’ is therefore defined as both above and below surface contaminants having been removed and a chemical cleaner been applied to the paint in order to remove all harmful substances.

A true shine?

For this we need a perfectly flat surface. This can be achieved in many ways, including polishing (by hand or by machine), removing embedded contaminants and using hybrid sealants (explained later), glazes and waxes, wet sanding, removing orange peel etc. We need to remove embedded contaminants which can only be done with claying (read more here....)

A ‘shine’ is simply the concept of light reflection and refraction. Unless the paint surface is correctly cleaned and levelled, the surface will not provide a perfect shine and its ability to reflect light and other attributes such as colour, clarity and depth will be significantly reduced.


The final result you achieve will only be as good as the surface it’s applied to and of course the products you use. It’s estimated that your final result is down to 85% preparation, 5% product and 10% methodology. Your cars appearance is very subjective, as is the choice of products and there is no ‘best product’. What matters is that, if it looks good to you, then that’s all that counts.
