How to buy chain the smart way
January 20th 2009
Well ignore the 50% off sale signs and follow these steps to buy chain the way that the jewellery chains/resellers buy it:
- Decide on a carat gold and colour
- Select a design
- Find out the weight of the item
- Divide the price by the weight to give you a price/gram.
Now you can search for chains that match the criteria you set in steps 1 to 3. When you find one, the price/gram from step 4 allows you to compare which is the better value.
The bracelet pictured to the right I have on sale. It has the following details:
- solid 9ct yellow gold
- hand made by me
- 10.7 grams in weight
That gives you a price of $29 per gram. I have one in stock but can make more.
Other types of catches are also available and I can add or remove links to suit your length. If the weight changes then the price will still be calculated at $29 per gram.
This item will stay on sale for the next two weeks. Happy New Year!
