The day following Thanksgiving in the US is, of course, Black Friday and typically kicks off the official Christmas shopping season. If you thought that people only shopped for clothes, shoes and electronics, you’re wrong. It’s the festive season and a great time of the year to bring cheer to your loved one by buying precious metals. Historically, Black Friday has featured great sales of jewellery with discounts of up to 78.75% in past years.
Prices of gold and silver through 2018
The spot price of silver has fallen around 17% in the last year from around $17 per ounce to its current price of around $14.15. This makes silver an enticing purchase with many analysts believing that silver is now at its bottom price and will rise sharply in the future.
The spot price of gold has stayed in a much narrower range, being $1210 per ounce now, starting last November at $1275, rising to a peak of $1362 and a low of $1177. So, there’s been a 5% fall in prices over the year, which makes it also a good time to buy gold.
With 2018 drawing to a close, the focus is now on 2018 with the pundits coming out with their precious metals forecasts for the coming year
Black Friday gold and silver deals in 2018
A number of high street retailers as well as specialist dealers in gold and silver are expected to come forward with great offers for Black Friday – November 23rd, 2018. Goldsmiths have a great range of jewellery that they typically bring out with special offers for Black Friday. Jewellers, Ernest Jones have a range of offers on watches and jewellery on offer.
A trend that is likely to dominate Black Friday 2018 is mobile commerce. Shoppers in the UK are likely to spend more than £1.54billion on 23rd November 2018 – a growth of 13% year on year. Gold and silver retailers like John Greed Jewellery or The Jewel Hut will also join the action to get a share of your wallet during this event.
