so you'd have common Tankard, pint, pewter 30 coppers (i've no idea if that's accurate)

No, actually you wouldn't want to list all the possible types of jewelry.

That would be an entry all on its own.  We do have a specific measurement unit ( the Starbright, is it?) for gems and precious metals, and it's a flexible assessment.

A pure gold necklace would simply be assessed by weight for starters (that's the cost of the material itself) - then the smith or jeweler who made it would add on his asking price for the craftsmanship.  Since that's a very subjective standard, it's difficult to measure - and certainly it's not possible to just say a 'common gold necklace!' as there is no such thing!

Peasants don't wear gold, even most wealthy merchants can't afford chains of the stuff, so anything made in gold would have to be small (gold is weighty) and crafted with care (gold is soft) and sold to the court or nobles (gold is expensive).

Once you think about all the possibilities when you mix metals, add in gemstones, etc... I don't want to even consider a list that goes like the following:

TIARA: silver, set with amethysts - x silverbards
TIARA: silver, set with emerauds - y silverbards
TIARA: silver, set with rubies - z goldbards
TIARA: gold, set with diamants - q goldbards
CROWN:  gold, elven fretwork - p goldbards
CROWN:  mithril, dwarven antique - n mithrenes
.
.
.

You do see how ludicrous that could get very quickly....  For one thing, the economy is not going to be based around what one unique tiara (custom-made for a specific duchess, because you don't buy tiaras 'off the rack' as t'were) might cost, is it?  It's going to be fueled by all those straw withes of Taenish eggs and all those willow baskets of Loibl bread and the pannikins of milch and the sacks of ore and the polished treenware, all changing hands...

So - I'd stick to the ore unprocessed, the pure form of the metal in a standard weight ingot, and the cut gemstone at a standard weight or starbright measurement...

Updated, the list didn't changed a lot, but there is, mainly corrected prices and stated the Starbright and the ingot weight.
