Caminante Nocturno - 2008-09-30 Do you think they'll ask questions if someone sends in blood-covered jewelery?
dueserpenti - 2008-09-30 Do people think jewelry is worth more when you FUCKING MELT IT DOWN? Humanity continues to surprise me.
halon - 2008-10-01 Actually, artisan costs generally don't add much to the cost of gold jewelry. If you ever got to an area with a large gold market, most everything will be priced based on weight (and the stores will generally have signs out front displaying the daily value/oz of gold), not how intricate the particular designs are.
