Jeweler's Rouge got its name from the jewelry industry, when jewelers would use a fine grit polishing compound to work with precious metals like silver and gold. These metals and the work pieces being of the highest quality required a polishing compound that would deliver the highest quality finish of both surface finish as well as the natural color of the metal. Today, Jeweler's rouge refers to a specific type of polishing compound that is also designed to bring a mirror like finish to higher end metals.
