Daily Wire Tip May 24: Pricing of Chipped Cabochon
Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip
May 24, 2010
This is a question applying to your answer to the chipped cabochon.
Wouldn’t you sell it for less due to the fact it’s been damaged?
With regards to the tip for 05/06/10, not necessarily. If the stone is a nice stone and the break is smooth, covered by incorporating a beaded design, it is not a damaged piece, but rather part of the design. (My opinion, sure to get some opposing feedback, I’m sure!) It’s really the choice of the designer. Some irregularly cut cabs look like they’ve been chipped, so the call isn’t really mine to make.
