Most of my work uses sterling silver but I’d love to start
incorporating some gold. This question can be related to both metals
but say I was commissioned to make a piece using gold, and the
client wants an idea of the cost, how on earth would I be able to
work that out without knowing how much material I would need, nor
the price of the gold on the day of purchasing. Is the price I state
final, or is it ok to make sure the client understands that it could
I’d hate to under estimate and end up paying for it myself. Or over
estimate so that price becomes higher than acceptable.
Pricing an item is hard at the best of times!
