    This is the one area that I am really struggling with since returning to making. I have made a few pieces from old stock of sheet and have priced up the silver in order to replace and it runs into 100's!

    Oh my actual god! So it IS 991 for a tiny square of 9ct 1mm thick piece that measures 70 Millimetres square? That's mm's not cm's! I won't be offering gold jewellery then. How come you can buy a gold ring for so much less, or a gold pendant? Confused.com.

    Neve, not sure where you get your ring prices from but;
    From a square of 70mm. you could cut 8 strips of 8mm. wide x 70mm. long and these made into man size wedding ring bands, based on Cookson's prices of a Z size 8mm. wide, 1mm.thick, flat wedding bands which cost 400 plus each at today's prices. So the gold would make 8 x 400 = 3200.

    "caroleallen
    I've been trying for ages to get a piece of 9ct rose gold about 6cmx6cm. No one seems to stock a piece that big!"

    Have you tried Betts Carole?? I had some from there not so long ago, not quite that size, they seem to be able to order pretty much anything in for you.

    Either that, or you are a mind reader and answer questions before they've even been asked
