The aphorism “All that glitters is not gold” has been with us for centuries.
The exact phrase comes from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, but people have been using some form of the saying since at least the 12th century.
However you say it, it basically means “Some things in life are too good to be true.”
While we are not the Merchant of Venice but as Bucks County jewelers – we take the saying literally. A lot of what seems like valuable gold jewelry is really an imitation, just as seemingly simple pieces are sometimes quite valuable.

Diamond jewelry, however, is a different story. The oils from your finger can cause your pieces to lose their luster. In this blog post, our expert and graduate gemologist offer some tips on keeping your diamond jewelry looking its best.
Gold has always been valuable, long before our Bucks County cash for gold service was even an idea. It’s mentioned in the Bible, began and ended wars and inspired everything from Charlie Chaplin to the creators of HBO’s Deadwood.
But how did it get that way? In this blog post, we’ll look at the history of this precious metal.
“In the last year, we saw gold prices fall,” he said in an interview with Kitco News. “But in the last quarter of this year, we’ve seen a big increase and I think that’s partly driven by expectations of reduced long-term interest rates.”
His comments followed a statement from the president of the Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis that a rate cut was looking more enticing to potentially give markets more credibility and reduce inflation.
