Hi y’all, I just came in on the back end of this thread. I now live
in a small town, and there was only one person here who did any sort
of jewelry repair, and he passed away last week of a heart attack.
Anyway, he ran a small gift shop and used to charge locals about
$4.00 to size a ring, and I thought there was no need to compete
with him, since I charged more labor than that to size a ring ten
years ago, just “let him have at it” and just stick to doing my art.
So now I thought I’d offer my services to locals for repairs and
remounts, but I wanted some sort of nationalized pricing chart or
something, to show them that most people in this country pay about
$20 and up for a basic ring sizing. Also, I’ve been out of a
jewelry store for quite a few years now, and I’m not sure what the
going rate is for basic repairs.
SO…if anyone can e-mail me this article you’ve been talking about,
or some sort of price list to go by, I sure would appreciate it.
