Mene 24k platinum chain vs. Unspecified platinum chain

in mene •  16 days ago

It's time for another PLATINUM jewelry battle!

@goldmatters takes care of all the gold battles (after all his name is GOLDmatters), so I'll host some platinum ones! I still wonder if my Steemit name should have been platinummatters...?

TODAY, we have the classic Mene 24 karat 18" platinum chain:

Versus the challenger, the fremada platinum 18" cable necklace:

Let's start with the fiat prices. The Mene chain is $232:

And the fremada is $260, at an astounding $464 off!

Has Mene finally met it's match?! I thought so at first, but then I scrolled down the page.

FIRSTLY, it doesn't even tell you how much platinum the fremada contains. Is it pure 24 karat? Is it 950? (or 5% NOT platinum) We have no clue:

After searching some more however I finally found the weight. Uh oh... 2 grams? This isn't looking good for the challenger:

Let's go back to Mene. As seen at the bottom of the image, we get almost 8 grams of pure platinum:

Final results...

7.69 grams of pure platinum with Mene for $232

or

2 grams of platinum (with unknown purity) with the fremada for $260

That's over 5 more grams of platinum for less fiat, making Mene the easy winner yet again :)

Thanks upme

I love these battles! I'm too bad with numbers to figure out stuff like this "Is it pure 24 karat? Is it 950? (or 5% NOT platinum) " but I like when you guys break it down like this haha
