    Unhappy Discount on gold

    Hi - have just had a request for a gold setting and chain. Phoned Cookson for discount as none showing on my account. They say that if I buy more gold they will look into giving me a discount, I pointed out that unless I know the discount in advance how can I quote my customer?
    Eventually they said they would give me 'quote'. I felt like banging my head on the desk.
    Makes it very difficult to price up a job!!!
    Has anyone else had this problem?

    How do you get discount out of them? I didn't even know it was on offer.

    You have to ask. They don't offer!
    If you use a lot of bullion, findings etc just ask.

    I didn't know about this and is it only gold or does that include silver? What do they call a decent amount before they will give discount?

    I know my tutor got a discount on silver, but she was buying for herself and the class. I would assume it's a combination of quantity and regularity
    All the gear and no idea
