Jackson precious metal brush and jewellery sets a new gold standard for jewellery
Posted December 05, 2018 18:34:57In an age when precious metals are all but everywhere, there is a real sense of excitement around this year’s Gold and Jewelry Show in the United States.
But it’s not just the excitement that is unique to this year.
It’s the price.
Jackson, the makers of the precious metal, announced this week it will launch a new, higher-quality and more affordable brush for sale in the US.
The brush, called the Jackson Brilliant Gold, is the first of its kind.
A brush is essentially a metal bar that can be used to polish your jewellery.
It has a diameter of 0.75 millimetres and can be made of gold or silver.
This is a significant upgrade for jewellers looking to compete with more expensive precious metals.
“Jackson has always prided itself on its innovative and high-quality designs, and the new brush from the company represents a significant milestone for us,” said Jackson’s president, James Smith.
Its release in November 2016 was followed by a significant decline in demand and sales for the Jacksons flagship product.
There have been some big drops in the price of gold recently, from $1,600 to $1.50 per ounce.
However, this latest price cut does not seem to have put an end to demand.
According to the American Gem and Mineral Society, jeweller sales in the first quarter of 2019 rose by 7.5 per cent, compared to the same quarter a year ago.
In fact, the total number of gold sales rose by almost 10 per cent compared to a year earlier.
Despite a steep drop in demand for the jackson brush, demand for jeweller goods is expected to continue to rise.
Jewellers say the price drop will allow them to compete better with more affordable precious metals and make up for any loss in quality from the brush.
And the brush will certainly be a welcome upgrade to any jewellery-loving, silver-phobic, jewellery hoarder.
I think we’re in a great place for this, said Andrew Leach, jeweller and jeweller-in-residence at the Royal Australian Mint.
What to buy: For those who want a more affordable alternative to expensive gold, there are a few different choices for the brush and other accessories, including a variety of stainless steel and gold finishes.
