Cost of Bangles

General Bangle Pricing

When people ask me how much a nine gem bangle costs, I generally give the following ballpark figures:

Full nine gem bangle using mostly uncut gems and a White Topaz for Venus, including all silver and setting costs: $1500

Full nine gem bangle using mostly uncut gems and a Diamond for Venus, including all silver and setting costs: $2400

Full nine gem bangle using mostly faceted gems, including all silver and setting costs: $3000 - $4500

Full nine gem bangle using mostly faceted gems, set in gold: $4000 - $5900

Bangle Example # 1

This person was budget conscious, so we put together a bangle that contained a lot of uncut stones for maximum benefit at minimal price.

Uncut Diamond: 2.00 cts @ $275 per ct = $ 550

Our high end uncut diamond normally cost $330 per carat. This one had a few minor inclusions to help bring the cost down to $275 per carat.

Uncut Yellow Sapphire Crystal: 2.24 cts @ $ 55 per ct = $ 123

Normally when dealing with uncut stones, we like to go with bigger stones, to compensate for small imperfections that tend to be found in uncut material. A 2.24 carat uncut stone is small, but this person had a very strong Jupiter and this stone was particularly clean.

Uncut Blue Sapphire Crystal: 6.30 cts @ $ 45per ct = $ 283

This is a good size for an uncut stone. This Blue Sapphire had a very deep blue color and at $35 per carat, this person could afford to get a big one. The outstanding feature of this stone is the deep blue color which unlike 99% of most faceted deep blue stones is definitely unheated as a friend of mine in Australia that owns the sapphire mine supplies me directly. These crystals are bought for there flatish shape that allows for a comfortable and large skin contact which allows for maximum electro-magnetic radiation's transfer.

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.05 cts @ $260 per ct = $ 533

A top of the line Chrysoberyl Catseye can go as high as $410 per carat. And even then I have some extraordinary specimens in the milk and honey variety that leap past the $750 a carat range. Though this price is dictated by fashion and rarity and not the quality of the gems homogenous catseye phenomena.

Once again, because this person was budget conscious and had a strong Ketu, we chose a low carat, mid-range stone.

Red Coral 2.55 cts $70 total = $ 70

Mars is this person's strongest planet, so he did not need much coral. He got a small piece with a deep red color. Often we have clients who have a well placed coral but still express weaker mars indications like sensitivity to the cold. Lack of physical energy. I like to stress that as we get older our receptivity to planetary energies gets severely weakened and this is part of the condition for many . However for remedial strategy to combat this a coral necklace is wonderful tool to experiment with to evaluate its often dramatic usefulness. It can be worn for a few days when one feels low on energy or is combating a cold winter and removed when summer is flying its warm colors and are fitness is coming around.

Natural Seawater Pearl 6.18 cts $250 total = $ 250

Normally pearl is only around $100 total, but this person happened to fall in love with a high end piece and wanted it despite his budget. Sometimes people are drawn to certain stones.

Ruby 5.00 cts @ $ 48 per ct = $240

All of our laboratory-grown ruby crystal are flawless and $25 per carat. 5 carats is an average size.

Emerald 10.50 cts @ $ 40 per ct = $ 420

The emerald is laboratory-grown as well, also flawless. 10.5 carats is on the large size for an emerald. Most people get around 7 or 8 carats.

Hessonite Garnet Uncut 5.70 cts @ $ 15 per ct = $ 85

This person chose an uncut hessonite over cut because of the incredibly low price of uncut compared to faceted. (Faceted hessonite costs between $90 and $120 per carat for flawless weightier material.)

Silver Gem Setting $25 per piece times 9 pieces = $225

Expandable Spring Links $18 per link times 6 links = $108

Bangle total $2,887

Gold Bangle - Standard Design

Bangle Example # 2 - Gold Bangle

When a customer gets a gold bangle, we make no profit on the cost of the gold. We charge only what it costs us to have the material cast.

Bangle Example # 3 -Budget Bangle

Diamond: No Diamond

This person opted to go with a White Topaz instead. The Diamond is much more powerful than the White Topaz. This person got a Topaz first, then later upgraded to a Diamond. White Topaz sells for $8 per carat for larger stones. In the case of any upgrade, we will buy back all substitute stones at full price.

Yellow Topaz Crystal: 6.90 cts @ $15 per ct = $ 103

Yellow Topaz is a powerful stone that many people prefer to the Yellow Sapphire. It is also less expensive in its uncut form.

Uncut Blue Sapphire 2.47 cts @ $45 per ct = $111

This was a very good quality, natural, unheated, deep blue sapphire.

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.90 cts @ $60 per ct = $174

This is an incredibly low price for a Chrysoberyl Catseye. The stone was of mid-range quality.

Red Coral 7.60 cts $65 total = $ 65

This was a good-sized coral. Because the piece was of a more pale color, we were able to bring down the price.

Pearl 5.98 cts $80 total = $ 80

This was a high quality piece.

Ruby 6.6 cts @ $ 48per ct = $316

Uncut laboratory-grown ruby crystal. All lab-grown ruby is superior quality.

Emerald 7.10 cts @ $ 40 per ct = $284

Laboratory-grown faceted Emerald. Like the ruby, it is all of superior quality.

Hessonite Garnet Uncut 9.20 cts @ $ 15 per ct = $138

Tumble polished, high quality stone.

White Topaz 6.76 cts @ $8 per ct = $54

All White Topaz is of superior quality, but it is not nearly as powerful stone as the Diamond. The hardness of the diamond is over 200 times harder than a topaz. A great part of the lifeforce in a gem comes from its hardness and size. It is considered to be a Venus stone, but our experience has shown that this is by no means a comparable gem to the Diamond. As stated earlier, the person later upgraded to a Diamond.

Silver Gem Setting $25 per piece times 9 pieces = $225

Expandable Spring Links $18 per link times ...4 links = $ 72

Bangle Total = $1622

Bangle Example # 4 - High End Bangle

Every stone on this bangle was the highest possible quality.

Uncut Diamond: 2.39 cts @ $380 per ct = $908

Faceted Yellow Sapphire: 3.90 cts @ $375 per ct = $1462

Faceted Blue Sapphire 2.65 cts @ $370 per ct = $ 980

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.35 cts @ $410per ct = $963

Red Coral 6.60 cts $180 total = $ 180

Natural Seawater Pearl (Keshi) 6.98 cts $250 total = $250

Uncut Ruby 8.72 cts @ $48 per ct = $418

Emerald 10.14 cts @ $ 40 per ct = $405

Faceted Hessonite Garnet 4.65 cts @ $ 90 per ct = $418

Silver Gem Setting $25 per piece times 9 pieces = $225

Expandable Spring Links $18 per link times 9 links = $162

Bangle Total = $6371

 

silver cloud design crystal healing bangle

Cloud Design Bangle

Bangle Example # 5 Cloud Design

Uncut Diamond: 4.44 cts @ $290 per ct = $1287

Our best quality Diamond is normally $330 per carat, this person found a piece he was articularly drawn to for $290. 4.44 cts is a good size for a Diamond and can sometimes be as much as half the cost of the bangle. The Diamond is by far the most powerful stone.

Faceted Yellow Topaz: 2.59 cts @ $80 per ct = $207

Faceted Yellow Topaz starts at around $75 per carat. As the carats increase, so does the price per carat. A high quality faceted 6 carat Yellow Topaz, for example, would cost around $150 per carat.These are not the heated yellow orange variety one often sees. But carry a color very similar to the sapphire.

Faceted Blue Sapphire 3.21 cts @ $130 per ct = $417

This person wanted a large diamond and was on somewhat of a budget, so he chose to go with a mid-range quality Sapphire and Catseye. We found him a pale Blue Sapphire for $130 per carat. (He could have gotten a deeper blue uncut Sapphire, but he insisted on faceted stones.)

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.71 cts @ $155 per ct = $420

Once again, this person chose to go with a mid-range quality catseye so he could get the large diamond he needed.

Red Coral 6.04 cts $44 total = $44

Mars was this person's strongest planet, so he did not need to spend much on the coral. Although heavy in weight, it contained a small hole, which dramatically brought the price down, but left the astrological power of the stone intact.

Pearl 6.15 cts $100 total = $100

Most of our good quality pearls are between $80 and $100. We have exceptional quality for more, but astrologically, it is not necessary to spend more.

Ruby 4.80 cts @ $ 48 per ct = $230

Uncut Laboratory-grown Ruby crystal.

Emerald 8.21 cts @ $ 45 per ct = $369

Laboratory-grown faceted Emerald. Like the ruby, it is all of superior quality.

Faceted Hessonite Garnet 3.02 cts @ $ 90 per ct = $271

For astrological purposes, this person could have done better going with uncut tumble polished Hessontie. But because he wanted all faceted stones, he got a superior quality hessonite for $90 per carat.

Silver Gem Setting $40 per piece times 9 pieces = $360

Expandable Spring Links $18 per link times 7 links = $126

Bangle Total = $3831

Bangle Example # 6

Uncut Diamond: 3.97 cts @ $250 per ct = $992

Good quality diamond. A few minor inclusions brought the price down by $80 per carat.

Uncut Yellow Sapphire: 4.06 cts @ $55 per ct = $223

Standard price for our Uncut Yellow Sapphire.

Uncut Blue Sapphire 3.38 cts @ $45 per ct = $152

Originally she intended to go with as many uncut stones as possible to keep the price down, but she happened to fall in love with this particular piece. This is quite a common occurrence. People are drawn to certain stones.

Chrysoberyl Catseye: 2.10 cts @ $105 per ct = $220

The eye was not sharp, nor obviously visible in a dark room. This accounted for the low cost of the stone.

Red Coral 4.09 cts $90 total = $90

A good piece with a deep, red color.

Pearl 5.70 cts $90 total = $90

Once again, a good quality piece.

Ruby 3.62 cts @ $ 48 per ct = $173

Uncut Laboratory-grown Ruby crystal.

Emerald 9.22 cts @ $ 40 per ct = $368

Laboratory-grown faceted Emerald. Like the ruby, it is all of superior quality.

Uncut Hessonite Garnet 5.90cts @ $ 15 per ct = $88

Tumble polished, high quality stone.

Silver Gem Setting $25 per piece times 9 pieces = $225

Expandable Spring Links $18 per link times 5 links = $90

Bangle Total = $2711

Bangle Example # 7 Budget Bangle

As with all stones if a client wants to upgrade I offer a full money back guarantee as long as the stone is being traded back in for its primary equivalent or of the same variety but of higher quality. This generally has to be done in person by the client visiting the shop as the low markup does not allow for the time involved with posting and packing etc. Because of this clients like the following bangle purchaser can relax that the hard earnt money they are putting towards a bangle does not get wasted if they decide later they want a more appropriate stone or one of higher quality. Sometimes a client may take a few years before they are really happy that they have reached their goal gem wise. The only two stones I do not always buy back at full price are the pearl and the red coral. This is because over time they both can shrink due to wear and tear and this devalues them.

Diamond:

No Diamond. The person opted to go with White Topaz instead.

Unheated Uncut Yellow Topaz Crystal: 4.30 cts @ $15 per ct = $64

Unheated Australian piece supplied directly from my friend at the mine.

White Topaz facet cut oval 8.0 @ $8 per ct = $64

Silver Gem Setting $25 per piece times 9 pieces = $225

Expandable Spring Links $18 per link times 5 links = $90

Bangle Total = $1399
