Gold jewellery: finishing touches

How can the staggering cost of gold be offset?

To make up for the cost, one solution is to add value through the goldsmith's craft, as the cost of labor hasn't increased as much.
Perfectly polished jewelry isn't enough: jewelry has to be gadrooned, filigreed, guilloched, corded, engraved with messages...

Every jewelry house dreams up their own signatures that stand out; for example, at Boucheron, the gold is fashioned into diamond points; and at Buccellati, it is crafted to look like velvet and tulle.
