Funny Page v. 3 #8
This page tells us something about the value of gems, without really telling us much. A "set" of star-sapphires can be worth half a million dollars! But how many are in a set? Assuming it was a set of 10, that would still be $50,000 each. At the end of the story it is revealed that each set is mounted on a bracelet, so maybe this is more reflective of the value of jewelry.
