Has anyone bought any gold necklaces, bracelets or rings in Kusadasi recently? i wanted to buy a gold ring last year (2009) and i did look and get some prices but time ran away from me and i never got round to it. This year i went back to the same shops and they said the prices had increased more than 50 percent in the last year, i was shocked. Is this true or were they trying to scam me? the price i was told was so expensive that i left it in the end.
