    Looking to buy a 10mm 55 cm (appro) men's curb link silver chain. Preferably 925.
    Don't like the idea of jewelry store prices, but im happy to pay a little over spot.

    Pm pictures / weight / content / price

    Cheers

    20200129_161934.jpg Just out of interest, I've seen a nice brand name antique piece with beautiful petina at 4 x spot.

    The "same" piece retails new for just under $800 :eek:

    It's little wonder that those gentlemen buying jewelry in the shopping malls usually don't bother with silver.
    I could imagine being offered $50 fo my "$800" chain... the $12 he might make on the purchase wouldn't be worth his time and the seller would be left fuming at his offer.

    It seems the Silver jewelry price : value ratio is definitely world's apart from the gold jewelry.
    Last time I looked at chunky gold necklaces they retailed at about 4 x spot it looks like silver is around 13 x spot for new.

    It makes the pre loved gold jewelry on this site look like even bigger bargains;)

    Interesting hey

    Anyhow, I'm still looking.
    All the best Screenshot_20200129-160058_Chrome.jpg

    I have some chains that I'll be selling at my monthly market stall this weekend. I'll see what I've got. 60cm+ usually fits over your head without the need to unclip.

    Thanks Sammysilver.

    60cm might be still a little snug around my neck,
    anything around 8 to 10mm

    I did buy a 63cm chain a while back and it was absolutely as small as I could go.


    I mistakenly bought a 55cm silver chain and it's way too small... (The old chain pictured in the thread) I'll try to move that one on.

    Not what you’re looking for, but it’s a big necklace for a big bloke.
    Pretty old Mexico 925 chain weighing 198.9g, length 63cm.
    Good functioning clasp, would come up shiny again with a proper clean. Just message me if you’re interested.

    Thanks for the offer pi

    It's definitely a unique piece and extremely chunky, but unfortunately I've got my heart set on a curb link.

    Cheers anyhow

    It's 55cms and the links are 13mm wide. Weighs in at approx. 120g on my budget kitchen scales. It's a very chunky chain.

    Thanks anyway STKR... I might need to stretch my neck thinner ; ) 13mm is definitely chunky AF though.

    Im getting a few nibbles out there. Looks like I'll find something soon enough.

    It's a dam shame that the old Angus and Coot chain I bought is too small. I love the soldered ends on it. They're just a bit fancier than you usually see on new chains.

    She'll be right STKR.

    I can't see a width length, I'd assume at that price shed be skinny?

    Cheers for the amazing offer of help anyhow, ;)

    I have a couple of fellow stackers who are going to send through pictures over the next few days.
    I'll wait and see what they come up with.
