If you are Selling Gold,Silver,Diamond,Pearl,Watches, Jewellery and Art in the U.K. where do you go for the best prices and for people that you can trust ??
Although I am not an expert in this market I did have cause to investigate this market and sell a few items recently and what I found may be of interest.
Simplistically the price of Gold over the last 20 years has increased massively. See
In USD/oz the increase has been from 2-400 tp 1400.
Silver has followed a similar trend
from 5 to about 35 US dollars per oz.
Diamond prices have fluctuated quite a bit and only certain sizes, colours and quality of diamonds are really investments.
Small diamonds are pretty valueless.
Pearls have been a disaster !!
Prices of Watches and Jewelery
So, the value of Watches and jewelery, depending on what they are made of, have been affected by these price trends but then you have makes and designs to take account of before you can say what the trend has been.
Certain watches ( antique/classic ) are going to retain their value, generally speaking but there will be fluctuations.
