Hi all, everywhere!
A good friend of mine who makes very high-end jewellery told me this
story today. He said to me his on-site, full time setter went to
Belgium for 6 months to re-learn diamond-setting and spent about
20,000 Euro’s. So now he is setting non-stop, but for his new and
improved updated setting labours he can charge only $4.00 per
pave’-stone. I asked my friend is it worth his setters investment? He
answered no way “its better not to be a setter nowadays in this
He had one person offer his on-site setter only $1-2.00 per stone.
He told him he is too busy. I could be setting lots, but for this
low-paying fee, I’d rather stay at teaching and enjoying more rather
than slaving away…
