    Blacks are now paying top dollar for a noose around their necks, they used to give them away free back in the days remember...
    What's even worse, that gold most likely was dug up from the earth by black Africans, only to be bought by a black American who will end up in a casket back in the earth at the hands of another envious black.

    Just crazy how only about 1000 grams of that is gold and the rest is nickel and copper. So expensive for an alloy but the labor is absolutely incredible.

    It's solid because it's not hollow as most large jewelry is. Solid does not refer to purity.
    10K scrap is $17.50 / gr this chain weighs 2176 gr Scrap value is $38,080.00
    Artistic value adds at least 50% if not double. Wholesale value 50-60K low retail 80K

    99.9% of you who comment haven´t ever had a gold chain more than 20 gram. For those who have, you know that the value is correct since it´s handmade also.
    Price for 10K today 19-04-2019 is from $16.3 USD/gram to $17.18 USD/gram.

      We just make what the customer orders, nothing fake about it. You can always place an order for 18k instead of being a hater, you probably can’t afford anything around that size anyway.

      Still shit ton of money for 2 kilograms, also not like you could afford it or even appreciate it. Idc about karat if it still has over 100g because its not going to be cheap, plus alloy can be melted down and separated later anyways. Also if it were over 18k or maybe even near it would likely bend under its own weight due to the mailability of gold. You dont seem to know or appreciate jewelry.
