Would love to see in 14kt gold 16in. necklaces.....

Please bring in the necklaces that you had in the old days....a gram weight that is not paper thin.  I usually wear 16 in. and there is nothing in stock but very thin chains.

I feel so fortunate that I was working in the days of much less expesnive gold and could build a gold wardrobe.  The only way to buy gold jewelry of those old weights at those prices is secondhand -  and even then, it's rare.

 

Especially on hot, humid summer days, if I wear any jewelry besides earrings, it might well be a 16-inch necklace.  No idea what they cost today.

I agree.  These 1-2 gram chains are ridiculous.  Yes, they're inexpensive but they won't last.  Q also sells very expensive chains but little to nothing in the mid-weight and mid-price.

 

I would love to see more 16, 18, 20 inch rope, snake, and spiga chains in the 4-5 gram weight, particularly in rose gold!

 

However, you can get great chains for less per gram at Sarraf dotcom.  I have purchased from them severl times and they provide excellent service and quality products.

I'd like to see that too.  But somone would have to buy it as a gift for me because I'm surely not paying for gold at today's prices.

14k was at $41.06 per gram yesterday.

 

I know there are design, manufacturers,  and sales mark-ups, however double is a bit steep.
