In an earlier post on this blog here I talked about joining Karatbars as a business. I now want to show you how you can buy the Karatbars gold products as gifts for your friends and family as a customer, and to show you some examples of the lovely gold cards that you can buy for your special occasions.
In the past, buying small quantities of gold – as small as a gram – has been difficult and expensive, especially in the West. In India and Middle Eastern countries it is somewhat easier but non-residents need to be careful that they are getting fair prices and then when they come to want to sell some of their investment gold, the same difficulties arise.
Karatbars have solved this by embedding small 1 gram slivers into a credit card size holder. You can also buy 2.5 and 5 gram cards in a plain design as an investment for yourself but the gift cards, collector cards and country cards are all 1 gram.
You need to check the shop prices as of course they will vary with the price of gold and current shipping costs added for where you live. On the day of writing, the wedding card is just under $80 (special artist edition) and the other 1 gram cards are $74.
(NB You also need to check that your country is one that Karatbars are shipping to. Currently there are over 200 active countries. This info is on the shop site.)
There are cards for Christmas, birthdays, weddings, new babies just to mention a few. To see the whole range and buy them, you need to go to this link.
This is just a selection of the beautiful cards on offer.
