Gold is gold. The prices shown are for 24k gold (100%). 24k gold contains more gold than 18k or 9k. 9k is an alloy and only contains 37.5% gold.
If a dealer offers 37.5% of the gold price for a 9k gold ring or chain, he's getting the other 62.5% of other metals free.
Anyroadup, back to the Farrimonds .....
I know Mark Farrimond who's part of the family who had Farrimonds chippy in Gidlow Lane! [:t]
