    Cost Structure Benchmarks
    ProfitPurchasesWagesWage costs are expected to account for 15.1% of revenue. Jewellery manufacturing can be labour-intensive when it involves the input of trained and experienced designers and craftsmen. However, manufacturers making cheaper jewellery are more likely to rely on equipment and use less skilled labour. Wages have declined as a share of revenue over the past five years due to measures introduced to improve cost efficiencies, such as computer-aided design technology used to determine cuts that can be made from gemstones.
