I bought a long time back a chunky 925 silver necklace in Brighton. Total impulse buy, and I didn't really have the cash for it. The piece sang to me.. I said to the seller that if it was still on the stand on my way home I was meant to have it. And there it was, waiting for me...
I paid "weight price" for it, which all those years ago was £120. An utter fortune to me back then.
The thought hit me just now as I looked at it in my drawer, how much is it worth now?
So, I weight it. It's 140g.
But, if I multiply that by 13 (rounded current £ silver price) the calculator tells me 1820. Which given I know my 10z rounds at 312g were around £13 an ozt and only £160 in the recent group order, I'm doing my maths very very wrong.
Ah! As I type that I figured out what I'm doing wrong... I'm multiplying by the ozt price, not the g price! D'oh!
It's late, don't mind me. Enjoy the picture of my necklace (cos I did all this typing on my phone, so it seems a shame not to post!)
