A piece of jewelry, valuable bartering item.

–Item Description


Jewelry is an Other item in This War of Mine. It is typically discovered while scavenging and will always be found inside containers. It can be used to barter with Traders. They consider Jewelry an "interesting item", which is better than "rather common" items but less than High value items that are "exactly what I need".

With Katia, 1 Jewelry can be traded to Franko for 14 Components (7 in winter).

You need 8 jewelry to escape the city with Karel (new ending added in the Anniversary Edition).
