How Much the Craftsmanship influence the value of a jewel

Posted on: June 20, 2012

Many people consider that the value of a piece of jewelry is strictly defined by the amount of gold , silver and gemstones that jewelry combines. Rarely there are people out there who evaluate the craftsmanship first and precious materials later.

It is not surprising considering that precious metals and precious gemstones are a value by themselves and history thought us that no matter in which form, having them is strictly related to prestige and wealth.

When evaluating a piece of jewelry consider that apart from the actual value the more underlining notes remain the lines from which this jewelry came to exist , how delicate this lines are , how they complement the quality of the materials used and how much do they add to the actual price.

This explains why a simulated diamond ring will have a considerable price under the circumstances a simulated stone will not be the equal of a mining one.

The bottom line remains this: a beautiful piece of jewelry can never be evaluated strictly by what is made of. The quality prevails both in materials and in craftsmanship and as surprising as it may seem, the beauty of the precious gemstones is nothing without the perfect cut coming from the hand of the jeweler.
