Do you have 20K?

If you have 20K is there anything else you should be spending it on?

If there is nothing else your SHOULD be spending it on is there something you would want more than this?

If the answer to the above is:

yes
no
no

Then go for it.



I speak as someone who impulse spent almost that amount on a vintage piece of jewellry last year while on holiday. So I may not be the best person to be taking advice from one this

We all have our own priorities. I wouldn't .We have had warnings locally from the police about teams of burglars who are specifically after jewellery and gold. They never come here as there is nothing to steal in the house.

Also it will drop in value in most cases after purchase like a brand new car.

If you have any mortgage or other debts pay the £20k there first.

what is the jewellery.

I think that S J phillips is quite a good place to pick up investment pieces.

I love sparkly, pretty, shiny things.

So Judy is basically a human magpie.

This explains the odd nutrition habits.

Ps, hats off to you. I would never want to own an item worth so much for fear of losing it.

What Gannicus said. It is a fvcking awful dump. Not too long ago, it was drive by shooting and was crown of crack head places in london in which to score.

The only people who choose to live in London are not from London, or don't know London. a bit like Clapham. Both are fully of newly minted young graduate professionals who think it is the place to live. It is not. Anyone who has lived in London more than 10 years would not live there in all probability .Any onr born in London would never live there.

What I don't get is why Lawyers of all levels flock to these dumps.

It is an investment.

Mortgage is paid down to optimise tax relief (not in U.K.)

I used to live in Islington too, but disagree re the butchers, Wang, there is Turner & George on St John Street, or the great butcher in Highbury Barn.

do you have a motorbike?
If not, why not?
do not purchase jewelry until you have rectified this sad state of affairs.

(If you do have a bike, spend the money on getting another one, obv)
