What’s the Truth About Gallery Consignment?

I recently saw an article here about consignment. I was asked to show my jewelry in a gallery.
When I went to talk about the deal, I was told that they would triple the price of my goods , which means a $300 piece to me would sell for $900 dollars there and they would take $600!
I felt crushed as these are friends of mine. They say that is costs a lot to run that business. Also, he inferred that he would not like to see me selling for less than his prices on my own site.
So, what is that about? Some friend says that it is worth getting into a gallery because it gives you cache’ or a better reputation even if you end up not making much.
I get frustrated about all this, as I really want to start making a fair income with all that I do.
