Wholesale is the price that retail establishments will pay for the products that they intend to sell to their cliental. For instance, you want to sell your diamond necklace to a big retailer; the retailer will offer you a wholesale price based on the exclusivity of your necklace, the craftsmanship, and ultimately what they think will leave them room for a profit. The price the retailer sets on the product is called the retail value; which is based on what the retailer believes the market can bear or is willing to spend on the product. After purchasing wholesale, the retailer then marks up the price to sell for retail.
Crystal jewelry can be made using a variety of materials, and can find application everywhere. As mentioned before, crystals can be beaded onto bridal dresses. But, they can also be beaded into other outfits, thus transforming those dresses forever into valuable heirlooms. Depending upon the purpose of the jewelry, threads made of either metal, yarn, or plastic can be used to bead them together.
Rock polishing is achieved via a process called 'tumbling'. A tumbler consists of an electric motor, a barrel, and a frame with rollers. A pulley and a belt connect the rollers to the motor. To begin with, the barrel is filled up to almost three quarters with stones of about 1 inch in diameter. Silicon carbide is then added in a proportion that is half the total load in the barrel. Water is also added. The basic procedure is to tumble the rocks with progressively finer grits and polishes until the desired shape and shine is achieved. As the barrel rotates, its contents collide, wearing down the stones. The stones then begin to erode. The rate at which the stone erodes will depend on its characteristics. Every day, stop the machine, remove some stones, and wash them under clean water. Then allow them to dry and inspect them with a small magnifying glass under bright light. Clean out the sludge in the barrel. If the stones are pitted or cracked, return them to the tumbler, add the right amount of silicon carbide and water, and repeat the process. When your samples do not reveal these pits, cracks, and hairlines, remove all the stones. It may take 4 to 6 weeks to finish a batch. Once the stones are perfected, comes the final part. A tablespoon of cerium oxide per pound of stones is to be added. Tumble for another week.
