    Where to buy 916k Gold for 4 Dian Jin or Wedding band?

    Hi, anyone has any recommendations to buy 916k for 4 dian jing.
    So far the one i feel is trustworthy are:
    - Poh Heng
    - Heng Heng (AMK Central)
    - heard of Chinatown People park Complex 2nd level Jewel shop in the corner, not sure of the name but it said to sell cheap , maybe it did not include GST or workmanship

    Currently Gold price is on the rise. Last check on 02 May 11 is like
    $73 per gram - 24k (99)
    $63 per gram - 22k (916k)

    the Chinatown complex do they give certification? no certification I dont really dare to trust. Gold price rose above $1518 few days ago but today it plummented back down to $1488 usd per ounce now. I am also looking around for cheaper jewellery shops to buy from as the well known brands one usually charge much higher.

    I'm not a yellow gold person but I'd to get 4-Dian-Jin cos of the traditions. I obliged and got Disney collections from Poh Heng for my future child since I do not have to wear it on the AD.

    i also bought from another store called jin bao, same level in people complex..no GST but got workmanship..den i scout again and saw chung hwa..no GST and no workmanship..save alot...Gold price change ard last fri 6 May

    999 Gold = 71.50
    916 Gold = 66.50

    anyway, i monitor the gold price trend and check the singapore rate now before i buy. It indirectly link to gold price in Singapore as they are pegged to market

    those without workman ship, the design got things like workman ship etc?

    i saw one shop online the current gold price is S$54!! i almost fainted.. then keep checking if its real.. its real.. *cries*

    My bf bought one abacus that is about 1.5k. 20g.. same day we bought our wedding bands.. my only consolation is that the band i bought is one of a kind.. and if we didnt buy tt day, the couple who was seeing that ring also would have bought it.. hai..

    my error ..shd be in 68g as that week u bought for 916k
    cfm chung hwa is no GSt and No workmanship. u just times the weight of the gold with current market price. u can test the weight.

    i wanted a pair of gold ring for us.Mine current is lee hwa, normal 18k rose gold.

    between, u saying u bought ur weeding bands , is it gold 916 or 999t ? where u bought?

    hmm..u buy wedding band before AD in 2013.

    Hi godbirdie , does the jewellery in chung hwa has the hallmark or certified by the Singapore Jewellers Association? meaning the "916" or the "shop stamp". cos I went to heng heng, even the small items(rings) have 3 hallmark. I scared of fake gold lar.

    hi Jaslinegal, i being to 4 different shops and bought gold before, namely, PoH Heng, Heng Heng, Jin Bao (People Complex level 2) and Jin Bao (PP Complex level 2).The first 3 shops, including Jin Bao got the hall marks and the lionhead mark on the shop.Jin Bao has no GST. For Chung hwa, i went there cos friends recommend and it has been there for 20 years.It does not have any hallmark but the weight is as what they claim as i weigh them. u may want to check out and the designs are quite alot for both 916 and 999.
    i understand how u felt. if u worried , u can go shops with lionhead marks...what i know at least Jin Bao has no GST..

    just saw the news abt chung hwa..for sharing
