Displaysense Freeze Prices To Aid Cash Strapped Councils

With the UK economy still teetering on the cliff edge of economic recovery, everyone from small businesses to Alistair Darling are set for a new decade of belt tightening in order to reduce the countries debts. With more than 250,000 people currently employed in the public sector, this area is set to be hit hardest as budgets are slashed and the prospect of major job losses seem inevitable.

In order to help prevent future job losses, Displaysense, a leading supplier of display cabinets and cake stands to retailers and public bodies in the UK, has vowed to freeze the prices of its most popular ranges over the next couple of months.

The company, which has experienced price increases from their suppliers and who are also suffering from the ever escalating prices of fuel, has promised to absorb all of these costs until the start of June. As public sector bodies are set to start a new financial year in April, procurement managers are being encouraged to make the most of this price freeze and purchase their business card holders and display cases now.

With spending cuts being estimated between 5% and 20% from council to council, not only will those currently employment by a public sector body suffer, but also the general public who depend on grants or support from the government to get by.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager at Displaysense commented: “Throughout the 30 year history at Displaysense, we have always had a long standing relationship with councils. We appreciate their business and are trying to do what we can to ease their short term pressures and their long term concerns.”

According to a recent survey carried out by BBC English regions, some councils may experience up to 1000 job losses each, which will only push the level of unemployment back up and impact on the stability of the economies recovery.

Although the price freeze at Displaysense might not be the answer to the public sectors prayers, it is hoped that other suppliers will follow suit and play their part in keeping the countries unemployment level down and keeping the UK economy up.

Titanium-Jewelry.com Features Creative Designs In Modern Metals Comparable To Platinum

Titanium-Jewelry.com, a preeminent online jewelry retailer has announced a brand new addition to its considerable selection of titanium and tungsten jewelry, and mens wedding bands: a collection of palladium rings and wedding bands possessing all the quality and allure of platinum at a fraction of the price.

Palladium is an investment quality precious metal, part of what’s known as the Platinum Group Metals. Chemically similar to platinum, it is likewise prized for its purity, durability, and brilliant white color. Palladium also has a broad range of applications beyond jewelry including electronics and industry. Along with platinum, gold and silver, it is one of the four metals to be given an ISO currency code.

The popularity of this white precious metal has been rising steadily in recent years, thanks to its similarities to platinum, wide range of tech applications, not to mention platinum’s rising prices. To boot, one troy ounce of .9999 platinum was quoted at in the commodities market last week at $1636, compared to $470.00 per troy ounce of palladium.

In the last few months, experts have been predicting greater demand for platinum and palladium in the coming year, citing persistent demand f r o m industrial consumers as well as swelling demand abroad for jewelry.

Like platinum, palladium is a superior jewelry metal due to its rarity, luxurious white luster and hypoallergenic properties. (Actually palladium is slightly whiter, lighter in weight and harder than platinum.) Previously white gold- an alloyed metal, was the popular affordable alternative to platinum.

White gold jewelry however, depends on a rhodium coating for its brilliant hue, and over time the coating wears off and requires refinishing. Palladium, a much purer and more durable metal requires no such coating to maintain its crisp whiteness.

“More and more people are choosing palladium rings and palladium wedding bands over platinum; they’re discovering that they can have all the rarefied eye-appeal and superior quality of platinum at a small fraction of the price,” says Ron Yates, the founder of Titanium-Jewelry.com. “For example, the ARDENT platinum wedding band by ArtCarved sells for $2885. This very same ring in palladium sells for $695, less than a fourth of the price!”
