Not exactly, but you're closer. Take a look at how precious metals are measured...

The world was supposed to have ended at least 8 times by now. How disappointed I am. I was looking forward to the 'booms'. Wink

No idea, Ghost. I should know, my father being a jeweller and all, but no idea.

Precious metals and some gems (like Opals) are measured in Troy weight, which has 12 ounces to the pound. (Although the Troy pound is no longer an official unit of measure for sales purposes.)

But a Troy ounce is 480 grains, while an avoirdupois ounce is 437.5 grains, so the difference isn't as big as it first looks. The feathers are still heavier, though.

Okay, well, i use metric, so i have no idea what you're on about anymore.
For sales purposes here, Gold is measured like anything else, but anyway...

Gold Pandora beads are roughly $20 more than a silver of the same model. And that has nothing to do with what we're talking about, but i feel like discussing Pandora pricing. Anyway, whatever.
