As some of you may have heard in the news, gold and silver prices have soared this year.
We waited as long as we could, but in light of the dramatic increases in the cost of both silver and gold (on top of casting, production and hallmarking price increases this year) we have started reviewing our prices.
We care about offering value for money and promise to keep any increases to a minimum, (in some cases the price increases will be as small as 4 euro on silver) but wanted to let you know why the changes are being made across the website and collections.
Gold Price Change
Gold is a very valuable universal currency. As you can see in a recent graph at the top of the page, gold prices in August increased by 36% year on year (a staggering amount!). Gold continues to trade at exceptionally high amounts internationally. As you may already be aware, we use 100% recycled gold (the most sustainable option) that has been refined, tested and hallmarked by the Assay Office. It your guarantee of quality.
Silver Price Change
Silver has increased by 51% year on year, with some industry experts predicting it to reach record highs by November.
We use EcoSilver in our sheet metal designs. It is an eco-friendly alternative to mined sterling silver. It is 100% recycled, 100% traceable and 100% audited by our bullion supplier. Eco Silver is a fraction more expensive to use (due to the extra segregation process required in order to ensure that it is 100% recycled during refining), but we think it's an ethical switch worth doing and we hope that you agree.
*We will not be increasing the cost of our sale/outlet store gold and silver so we encourage you to take advantage of their below market prices why stock lasts!
