The difference between carats or karats in selling jewelry.
Carat weight is used to identify the physical weight of a diamond or gemstone. Also, carat is one of the four Cs used to determine a diamonds value. The other Cs are cut, clarity and color. A karat is not a unit of weight. The word karat refers to the amount of gold in a particular item. Pure gold is 24 karat or 24KT and 18KT is 75% pure gold.
Pawn shops, the good, the bad and the ugly.
If you have been into a Phoenix pawn shop you probably would agree that many are just bad. Locals use them for various reasons but most would also agree it isn’t because of the atmosphere. A typical visit may leave even the coolest customer a little hot. Here is a story of a customer that needed to sell his jewelry. “The intellectuals behind the counter love to make you feel at home when you enter. Somehow a dead eye stare has replaced a friendly greeting and that’s just the beginning. The awkward moments just increase as you move closer to the center of their domain. I just want to say that I know people who make minimum wage and have a great work ethic and attitude. That being said, WTF is it with these employees at pawn shops? Their cavalier and smug, take or leave it attitude leaves me wondering why I got out of my car.” Life is about choices where you and I, and everyone, must make them day in and day out. So the next time you are in a Phoenix pawn shop and given the ultimatum to take or leave it. Leave it and come to Bancless.
