I always check the daily metal market just before i get my daily dose of PriceScope.I knew the prices were on the rise yesterday but sometime during the day it took a jump to $1782.50 before settling back down to 1751.00 and now at todays current 1729.00! Crazy! Do you follow the metal market? Does it affect how and when you buy jewelry? i think it will be some time before im able to buy jewelry again!
