Each ECOLSON™ masterpiece is an amazing fine jewelry, as well as a sharp investment on the art- and commodity market. To understand the pricing and what it really worth, you must consider the Value, and the Opportunity.
Our artwork value is defined by :
- Ethical Gold prices
- Handcraft : complexity to design and cast
- Fine Art estimate : edition rarity
Smart ones will easily understand that the ECOLSON™ artwork does not compete with the mass-produced objects imported by jewelry retailers. Their cheap imported products are sold at very high price to customers who are misled in the Jewelry market. The retailers are wasting their Customers money into international shipping, duties, accumulated margins from importers and distributors.
ECOLSON™ plays in a totally different category with artistic creations – in conformance with a Code of Ethics – which are solid, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted, limited, ethic, and made in USA. Despite these rare characteristics, our artwork remains at a very reasonable pricing for the weight of gold and value offered.
Why you must invest in Gold
High inflation and fiscal deficit are conductive for gold prices. 4 reasons why you must invest in Gold according to MoneyControl (Jan 28, 2021) :
- Stimulus and Inflation : As the economy is expected to take more time to recover, more stimulus is expected from central bankers all over the world, including in the US. This should propel gold prices upwards
- Low or negative real rates : investors find gold as an attractive investment option to protect their purchasing power, given that the yellow metal acts as a hedge against inflation
- Geo-political risks still exist : The world is starting to lose confidence that the heavily indebted US can keep paying its bills. The euro overtaking the dollar to become the most used currency for global payments is one indication of that. Gold, which is priced in dollars, to be a big beneficiary if a crisis of confidence plagues the world’s reserve currency.
- Overvalued stock markets : Investors have seen handsome gains on equity investments, as stock prices rallied. But the fear of a possible correction is playing on their minds now, as valuations are steep. One may find it difficult to invest, as despite the recent corrections, markets are at high levels. Since gold has a negative correlation with equities, it is a good idea to allocate some money to gold to contain the downside of the overall portfolio.

The choice among these types of yellow gold depends on the intended use, desired color, budget, and durability requirements. Higher karat golds provide a richer yellow color and a higher level of prestige, while lower karat golds offer practicality and resilience for everyday wear. The price of gold depends mainly on its purity, market value, weight, central bank reserves, and production costs.
Why you must invest in Art
The global art market is where buyers and sellers can trade in services, articles, and works-of-art and culture associated with the various arts. The market is commonly divided into two segments, a primary and a secondary market. The primary market is where works are first sold after they were created by an artist; the secondary market consists of re-sales. These re-sales can be made through private transactions or at auction.
The global art market value was 64.12 billion U.S. dollars in 2019. Meanwhile, the volume of global art sales reached 40.5 million transactions in 2019, up from 39.8 million the previous year. When looking at a regional distribution of the global art market, North America held the largest share, and Europe, the second largest. Although the art market remains predominantly offline, there is increasing interest in the online art market and online art and antiques sales have seen growth in recent years.
The rarity of a work of art is what gives it value. Several factors determine the value of fine art—the size of the edition (that is, the number of prints the artist makes of one work), the significance of the work, the condition of the print, and whether it is signed and numbered by the artist.
