English term or phrase: twc
Buongiorno a tutt*

Data la mia ignoranza in materia, chiedo aiuto a voi ;-)

Si tratta di metalli e pietre preziose (gioielleria). Ho capito che si tratta della conversione e unità di misura dei pesi, ma esattamente cosa significa l'acronimo *twc* (Troy...?)

Uno sfavillante e sfaccettato grazie a tutti!

Peso totale/complessivo in carati
Explanation:
When a jeweler says "the center stone is...", he/she means the weight of that one stone. When he/she mentions TCW (total carat weight), CWT (carat weight total), TWC (total weight of carats) he/she means that all of the stones are a certain weight. A one carat stone is worth more than lots of little stones totalling the same weight.
