Price for one Baht gold necklace?

24 posts in this topic

With my wife's birthday coming up, I asked her to check the price of a one baht gold necklace since the gold prices have been going down considerably.

She was quoted 24,000 baht last Friday in a shop in Prakhon Chai. Is this possible?

Since I am away from Thailand currently, I checked on-line and see prices 18000 - 19000 Baht quoted in the Bangkok newspapers.

Are the shops in Isaan sellling at 24000 Baht because they do not want to lose money? Are they just cashing in on the uninformed?

Current price is 18300, plus a bit for making it. Certainly not more than 19000 unless a lot of work in it.

Something very fishy going on here I suspect.

Very easy: 19'000 to the goldshop and 5'000 for his wife. Quite usual. TIT

When gold price goes down, the cost of the "making" seems to go up, gold is high, cost of making is often lower, it's always cyclic, but interesting

Friday I seem to re-call 17800 for gold, day before was 18300, Monday previous was abround the edge of 20 000

Bangkok post I believe has the daily gold price?

Why didn't you just google Thai gold! Very simple and you get the price both of gold bars and ornaments (jewellery)

Eg gold one baht today is 18300

Jewellery one baht is 18700

Something very fishy here...your wife would know that the price off gold is advertised daily outside of all shops. Was she quoted 24k or are you being asked for 24k? I can't see how a thai would be uninformed?

I think you need to investigate this situation further. It could be a misunderstanding, it could be that you believe pigs can fly or this could be a timely indication of bigger things to come.

Choose wisely your next move.

Some people really should follow their own advice.

Everyone comes on here straight away and sl@#gs of a Thai woman.

There has been so little info offered that it is impossible to reach such verdicts.

It is quite possible that the chain is over one baht in weight. The lady in question may have picked it out and simply asked "How much is this one?" Has she also chosen an amulet to go with it?

It is also possible that the gold shop is taking the p@#s. Something like "poor farmer woman, lets rip her off. She knows nothing about gold anyway".

My advice to the OP would be this. Mention to your wife that the price seems a bit high. Ask her to go to another gold shop and enquire. Then lets see what happens.

I am glad we are in agreement that something needs checking but I do not understand your comment about some people needing to follow their own advice?

What do you mean exactly (for the benefit of those without crystal balls)?
