    Default The price of gold :)

    Hello, I think I may be a bit of a numpty....so I wondered if I could ask a quick question. I have just had a quick look at how much a 70mm square of 9ct 1mm thick gold sheet would be (It's around 50 for silver) It's 991 for gold Ummmmm, is that right?

    The price sounds about right Neve. Gold is stupidly expensive.

    Am I seeing things or did Neves' question come after the answers? The forum gremlims are doing their rounds tonight!

    Yep, as mizgeorge said, gold is stupidly expensive and that's only 9ct! Have a look at the prices for 18ct if you really want a shock. I used to think that silver was expensive but when I started working with gold, silver is peanuts in comparison (definitely not cheap though)!

    Yeah, I saw something similar - double post, with the order wrong. Very odd. The posts appear in time order, so I'll have a look & see what could be messing that.

    I think it was a recent Assay Office London newsletter where silver was being described as "the new 9k" - the price of silver is down a bit, but it's still way higher than it was a few yers ago. The metal prices charts on the main Cooksons site make for interesting reading.

    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!
