On Wednesday night of September 28th, Doylestown Gold Exchange held its first Antique Road Show at the store.
The event was a huge success as the people started lining up a half-hour before the event started. There was a full line of people until 7:00. The event was live streamed on Facebook, and you can see a recording of the video on our Facebook page.
Doylestown Gold Exchange teamed up with Mike Ivankovich, a downsizing specialist and auctioneer. Mike has written books on how to downsize and he helps appraise items to steer his clients in the right direction when trying to sell their valuables. He is also the host of the “What’s It Worth?” appraisal radio show, which airs mornings from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. on WBCB 1490 AM.
In today’s economy people are looking for ways to raise funds quickly to pay the medical bills, the mortgage bills, or an unexpected expense that popped up. One way to raise funds quickly is to think about selling gold, silver, platinum or any precious metal.
As of September 2016, gold and silver have jumped up a lot and that is great for people who are selling these metals. As gold hits $1300 and silver is over $19 per ounce, customers are getting a lot more money then they were just few months ago. Doylestown Gold Exchange, was recently voted for the third year in a row as the Best in Bucks and Montgomery counties for the best gold and precious metals buyer.
The diamond: It’s a gem that is much rarer than most of us could ever imagine. For decades, it’s been referred to in pop culture—and in jewelry store advertisements—as “a girl’s best friend.” It’s also the hardest natural material on earth, literally. But how much do you really know about that sparkling cut of ice that’s attached to your custom diamond engagement ring?
Here’s the thing about diamonds: Even if you were bored to death by your high school geology class, you’ll probably be surprised to learn just how fascinating the story of the diamond really is.
Voters in the United Kingdom made history June 23 by voting to leave the European Union.
The “Brexit” referendum – as it’s come to be known – could have major implications for the economy in both Great Britain and around the world.
The days following the vote have already seen an equity sell-off that erased $3 trillion in stock market value, considered the worst two-day paper loss in history. Some experts worry the vote will lead to even greater calamity, using words like “stagflation” and “recession.”
Back in your father’s day, the idea of spending a significant amount of time choosing a wedding band barely existed. Unlike the women’s engagement ring and wedding band industry, which has seemingly always been overflowing with a wealth of choices, men’s wedding bands have historically been fairly simple affairs: white gold, yellow gold, or silver. Maybe a simple pattern. And for the especially flashy, perhaps a small diamond or two.
But times have most certainly changed. While men still might not have as many wedding band choices as women, the possibilities today are more plentiful than they were even 20 years ago. There are both precious metals and alternative metals to choose from, not to mention the various designs and levels of quality that each metal offers.
Doylestown Gold Exchange owner Greg Glemser can remember a time when investing in precious metals just wasn’t something people did.
“You used to seem a little crazy to put your money into silver or gold,” he says.
Now, it’s a way to diversify your portfolio, and one of the key pieces of Doylestown Gold Exchange’s business.
And these days, more and more people are looking to invest in gold and silver. The price of both metals has gone up significantly in recent weeks. Gold has gone from $1000 an ounce to more than $1200 an ounce, while silver’s price has jumped from $13 an ounce to $17 an ounce.
Reputation matters. When you look for someone to fix your car, put a new roof on your house or represent you in court, you’d base your decision on whether that person had a reputation for providing trustworthy, quality service.
The same thinking applies when choosing someone to handle your jewelry & watch repair in PA.
