Initially, no. Now yes. With all the double ore events coming soon, it is worth it now to upgrade and to make jewellery and to clear barn of pearls to make necklaces. But your milliage will vary as one need to send a lots of helicopters for mafia boss to show up. Then mafia boss might be asking for all the goods that you don't have or want ingots now you need to trash his orders and wait. Yes, one can eventually make enough to pay for Raja but to me, an easier way to make t cash may be winning events and HOL. Fulfilling the request for mafia boss is just more for XP and the occasional t cash.
I've tried it both ways and I don't use it anymore. I just don't feel like it's worth the time, effort and use of ore. I Absolutely Refuse to give up my Ore and Ingots for those orders. I'd rather have better factories and more cargo and prize chests (some pay $2+ TCash) from the Islands.
I often get Jewelry from the HOL and I will fill Mafia Man's order for TCash for Jewelry Only!!! No Ingots!!!

Haha. Well I guess I don’t know what I am missing. I get jewelry from HOL and sell it at the heli pad. My trains and planes never ask for it and my ore goes towards factories I am still upgrading and ships I am sending for premium goods. So, yeah, I don’t really have an opinion either way. Maybe after everything is built and I have no more upgrades to do I will build it and then form an opinion. Lmao!
I never built it either. I took the advice from people at the Playrix Forum when I was first starting out. The advice was to skip buying the Jewelry Store and the Mint, they were not worth it
A lot did advise that, but I also recollect @Nana I think? Mentioning that she upgraded her Jewellery factory to gain good XP as well as reducing time earlier on in her game. That stuck with me and I started to invest with upgrades to mine
As always the Jewellery Factory splits opinions between players
Even the Mint was met by a few players being upset when it was removed. As they struggled with coins to buy CBs and other stuff in their towns. They relied on it as an extra source to make money.
For me I now think one of the worst pieces of advice I was given was not to build the Jewellery Factory. I see a lot of value in it and I wish I had invested in it sooner
I didn't build the jewellery store until after many industrial events. Then I started building and upgrading it. Then behold, Playrix started the double ore events so I started to have large stash of ores. That is when I started to really make jewellery and sell jewellery.
If you don't have the jewellery store, you are going to be affected by the number of points that you can earn during industrial event. First is premade necklaces =80 points. Then it is making jewellery throughout the event. There are points to be earned.
But if you are concerned with limited amount of ores, necklaces and feathers earrings uses the least, much less than even silverware which does not even yield t cash. Then from this point on just trashed Mafia orders that does not ask for this 2 things.
