What does it cost to turn almost 19 grams of 18 karat gold into a piece of jewellery? That sounds like a pretty simple question but in fact it can be very complicated. The most basic type of plain ring or simple gold chain can often cost at least 3 times the gold value alone. When you add some fancy coloured gems, pearls, diamonds, assembled castings and some labour, the formula becomes much more complicated. If you’re considering purchasing a nice piece of jewellery make sure the jeweller can explain how the price is calculated. A little knowledge like this can help you understand the individual component value that contribute to the overall price. The value of this 19 gram total weight necklace can be figured out like this. To replace approximately 18 grams of Italian chain is going to competitively cost around $1750.00. The 7 small 0.015ct. high quality VS-GH diamonds are going to cost around $25.00 each, the 7.0mm Japanese cultured pearls are worth about $30.00 each, and the green tourmaline is worth around $50.00. Add all that together plus some labour to assemble it and you get a price of a little over $2000.00. An item like this is going to cost from $2000.00 to well over $3000.00 to replace with new depending where and who you buy it from. As an excellent condition estate jewellery piece we have it priced at $1200.00 and we feel it offers the best value around. Stock #e8699.
