10 KT the New Standard?

10 KT the New Standard?
Metal prices have gone out of this world over the last year to the point that the average Jill can't afford platinum any more, and the average Jo has to buy her, what? Can it really be happening? Is 10 kt gold the new 14 kt gold? Is it the new American standard these days? Oy, I hope not! But, I sure seem to see more and more of it.

Now, a few years ago, I'd say, that's fine. 10kt gold is sort of like high-end costume jewelry: it has its place. But, with the prices I'm seeing these days on items like the pendant pictured above ($1250 from Jewelry.com), I have to shake my head with wonder and sadness.

This is a cool pendant, but consider the gold in it or lack there of, it's just sad.

    Well, I can see that I guess because he would have had to special order versus use what he probably already had. But, normally, the price on 10kt has always seemed to me to be a good deal less expensive than 14. But that doesn’t seem to be true any more.

    Interesting. When I wanted to do 10K gold a year ago, my caster said I wouldn’t really see a price difference since it wasn’t one of their standard alloys so I’d be ordering it in very small quantity. They said I’d only see a price break if I did a high volume of pieces in it.
