Gold Increments and Pricing
The 14Kt gold prices printed in our marketing collateral are based on a market price of gold between $0 and $400. As you may know, the market price of gold fluctuates regularly and as is common practice, the price of Bob Siemon Designs 14Kt gold jewelry is based on gold’s market price. When the market price of gold is between $0 and $400, the suggested retail price of our 14Kt gold designs are as identified in this catalog. However, there are times when the market price of gold may exceed $400. In these cases, an additional charge, or increment, is added to the suggested retail price. The chart below
will help you estimate the price of a design for your customer. To ensure the most accurate quote, please contact our Customer Service Department at 800.854.8358.

To use the chart, determine the column which indicates the market price of gold., Next determine which row indicates the suggested retail price of the design as listed in this catalog. Find the point at which the correct row and column intersect. This will tell you an estimate of the incremental charge which will be added to the suggested retail price of the design.

White Gold
All 14Kt gold designs, except chains, are available in yellow or white gold for the same price. Please specify white gold when placing your special order.

Diamonds & Gemstones
Our diamonds are graded in accordance with the Gemological Institute of America's standards for diamond grading. We offer two qualities of diamonds - "gem" quality and "standard" quality. Gem quality diamonds are high quality diamonds with VS1-SI1 clarity and are in the G-I color range. Standard quality diamonds are in the SI2-I2 clarity range and are G-I in color. Many of our designs will accommodate more than one size or shape of stone. There is no setting charge when diamonds or gems are purchased from Bob Siemon Designs. All of our diamond settings are made with white gold. We recommend having settings checked at least once a year by a professional jeweler. Bob Siemon Designs is not responsible for lost diamonds due to settings that are not properly maintained. In addition to our fine selection of diamonds, we offer cubic zirconia and pearls. Synthetic birthstones are also available in the same sizes and prices as our cubic zirconia (see chart below). Genuine gemstone pricing is available upon request.

14Kt Gold Jewelry
All of our 14Kt gold designs are made of the finest solid 14Kt gold. 14Kt gold consists of 58% pure gold and 42% other alloys, meeting the highest standards in quality. Each design is crafted using the timeless process of "lost wax" casting. This process begins with a hand-carved wax design that is then invested, or enclosed, in a plaster mold. Once the plaster is dry, the wax is melted out and the mold is then filled with molten 14Kt gold. Finally, each design is meticulously hand polished and placed in a velvet jewelry box.  All of our 14Kt gold designs, except our chains, are available in yellow or white gold at no additional charge.

14Kt Gold Jewelry Care
Gold jewelry can be easily cared for using a soft toothbrush, mild  liquid dish soap and water. Or, the jewelry can be professionally cleaned. Harsh commercial cleaners can damage fine jewelry and should not be used.

14Kt Gold-Filled Jewelry
Our 14Kt gold-filled jewelry is created by fusing a top and bottom layer of 14Kt gold to an inner foundation of brass. One-twentieth (1/20th) of the total weight of the design is 14Kt gold. The intricate designs are then stamped, in a process called "die striking," onto each design with an incredible level of detail, making each design a true work of art. These designs are hand polished to a brilliant shine, goldplated and then placed in velvet jewelry boxes. The beauty and strength of these designs offers you an attractive, affordable alternative to solid 14Kt gold. To prolong the life of gold-filled jewelry, we recommend that it be removed when sleeping, showering, and swimming.

Sterling Silver Jewelry
All of our silver designs are made with solid sterling silver of the finest quality. The base metal content of sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other alloys. Each design is crafted using the timeless process of "lost wax" casting, which begins with a hand-carved wax design. The design is then invested, or enclosed, in a plaster mold. Once the plaster is dry, the wax is melted and the mold is then filled with molten sterling silver. Finally, each design is meticulously hand polished to a brilliant shine.

Sterling silver pendants come with rhodium-plated sterling silver chains with soldered links for added strength. Many of our designs are "antiqued" through a special oxidizing process, which adds contrast and helps to emphasize the design. Each pendant and ring is stamped with the Bob Siemon Designs logo, a guarantee that you have chosen the finest jewelry available.

Sterling Silver Jewelry Care
Occasionally, you will wear a sterling silver ring for a few days and a black film, called tarnish, will appear. Tarnish is the result of the skin's reaction to sterling silver and is produced by sulfuric oxide in the atmosphere and/or by certain foods or body salts. Generally, if you continue to wear the ring, the tarnish will disappear in a few weeks. Otherwise, it can be removed with the polishing cloth that is included with each sterling silver design. On rare occasions, the body may react to the copper alloy in sterling silver and turn the finger a slightly green color. If this happens, you can simply clean the silver with the polishing cloth and remove the ring at night to allow the skin to breathe. Genuine sterling silver will tarnish over time and needs to be cleaned with a polishing cloth, or professionally, to keep it looking shiny. Sterling silver designs can be easily cared for using a soft toothbrush, mild liquid dish soap and water. Harsh commercial cleaners can damage fine jewelry and should not be used. Sterling silver designs should be cleaned with the red portion of a polishing cloth then shined with the yellow side.

Quality Costume Jewelry
Our quality costume pendants are cast in the finest lead-free pewter, hand polished, then "triple-dipped" in either 22Kt gold or rhodium plating. This 22Kt gold plating thickness is three times the industry standard. Our pendants and chains are plated using the same process to ensure the consistency and quality of each design. Our chains are solid brass and every link is soldered for added strength. All quality costume designs are presented in velvet jewelry boxes.  We are proud of our work and offer an unconditional, lifetime guarantee on all quality costume jewelry.

To prolong the life of quality costume jewelry, we recommend that it be removed when sleeping, showering, and swimming.

Affordable Costume Jewelry
Our affordable costume jewelry is cast in the finest pewter, machine polished, and "single-dip" plated with 22Kt gold or rhodium. Each piece is individually and colorfully packaged.

Fashion Jewelry
Our fashion jewelry incorporates many of the qualities found in our various jewelry lines. We use an assortment of materials to create this line and our packaging is specially designed for each collection of jewelry. We create our fashion jewelry designs based on current jewelry trends and add our own unique inspirational message to each piece.
