$67 for a gold clasp for my thin chain.

I have had my tiny cross since I was a baby, and it is on a very fine 15 inch gold chain. The clasp wouldn’t close last week, and lucky for me, the cross fell in front of me.

I immediately took it to my local jeweler, that we have known 30+ years. The answer came back $67 + sales tax. I almost fell to the floor, but with Gold around $2,000 now, that is the price. They showed me a chain similar to the one I have, and it was $400.

Our friend always knocks a little bit off the price for us, but when I picked it up today, I made sure that the broken clasp was given back to me. At that price, this little bit of gold must be worth something.
