Singlet states are states with vanishing angular momentum. We investigate the possibilities of these states for measuring the gradient of a magnetic field. This kind of magnetometry is invariant under a homogeneous magnetic field. We calculate the precision of the measurement for this type of states, as well as for other states that are not invariant under homogeneous fields. We also consider the case of spins larger than 1/2 and the effect of noise.
