NEW DELHI: Unrest in the Arab world has been rocking Indian stocks, taking the bottom out of key indices, but it has also led to the prices of silver, of which the country is the largest importer,
“Silver prices have sky rocketed as much as 240 per cent in the past four years. It is at an all-time high of Rs 49,955 per kg. It can breach the Rs 50,000-mark any day,” said Pawan Verma who runs one of the largest jewellery stores in the capital’s old quarters.
“One of the key factors right now is the international buying spree, which is also partly based out of China. Both gold and silver are seeing enormous demand. Then there is this Gulf unrest. All are only fuelling prices, not pulling down demand,” Verma said.
I love old things! I’ve been collecting Vintage and antiques since I was practically a kid! I love researching the Edwardian era. … I am so… sentimental and concerned with things of the past…my family and friends cease to talk to me at times. I love period movies: Horseman on the Roof, Wuthering Heights, The Woodlanders, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Bleak house, and John Adams. My favorite actress is Juliette Binoche, in the movie Chocolat. I know it’s just a movie but, I feel if people would act that kind the world would be a better place to live.
I am on a constant mission to discover treasures; I love one-of-a-kind items, no one else has. Because I buy too much, occasionally I sell my items; Vintage prom, purses, antiques and incredible Edwardian jewelry. Originally I started this blog for myself, my little space to keep all my research notes, price realized and my photo creations. It seems there is more to this blog now, hopefully you can feel my love for the past.
Have a lovely day! Love
