Tropico Wiki

For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Jewelry Factory.

Jewelry Factories process Gold from Mines into Jewelry or Fine Jewelry, which is sold at a Dock for higher profits.


Sweat Shop: "Standard 14-hour work day full of joy and merrymaking."
Easy-Does-It: "Job quality is increased by 10, but the work time is 25% shorter."(+10 Job Quality)


Skylights: ($3,000) "+15% job quality."(+15 Job Quality)
Jeweler's Guild: ($5,000) "Workers gain skill experience 50% faster"
Finishing Shop: ($16,000, 10MW) "Produces more expensive fine jewelry."
Upgrade Bug Warning:
Upgrades are not credited properly unless the order follows a left to right rule. Skipping an upgrade may result in a previous upgrade to no longer be credited, when you activate the skipped one at a later date/time. True of T3+AP and sure it was the same without AP, hope this makes sense.


Dumpster and trash-can may appear.

In-Game Text


"Jewels are said to be every girl's best friends. A gold mine and enough spare cash will turn this into a lucrative business and will probably save a marriage or two."


"This Factory processes Gold into Jewelry."


1 Factory per 2 Gold Mines or reduce/restrict number of Employees if there is only 1 Mine. Teamster delivery behaviors require the input to be kept below ~800 units on at least one Factory. Abundance of Job Quality options makes this ideal for worker retention; making the second upgrade an attractive investment, even if Gold deposits are limited. Third Upgrade is advised as long as Market Prices are cooperative; can't undo it if there is a Market change scripted, barring dependancy on the Upgrade Bug, if applicable(untested).
