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.
Maybe you’ve come across a piece of jewelry that you’re not sure about, something you inherited from a distant relative or picked up at a garage sale. There are a few things you can do to determine whether what you’ve found has any value.
And like all beloved items, you want to make sure it looks its best. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to cleaning diamond rings, to help everyone from people who have been married for years to first-time Bucks County diamond buyers make sure their rings are spotless.
The old proverb tells us that “all that glitters isn’t gold,” but sometimes gold itself isn’t gold in color.
This precious metal comes in a multitude of distinct colors, and it’s worth knowing more about them if you’re interested in buying or selling gold.
What color is your gold?
Cold is available in a range of colors, from the classic yellow to bolder shades like purple. Some pieces of jewelry may include multiple gold colors to create a two-tone or three-tone effect. If you’re interested in a piece of jewelry that contains some specific colors, read on to learn more about them.
If you own jewelry that you’re interested in selling or perhaps having appraised, it’s natural to wonder about the honesty of the jewelry dealers who agree to look at your pieces and make you a cash offer.
Whether you have antique, vintage, retro, or estate jewelry in Bucks County that you’d like to turn into money, the truth is that understanding what you have and what it may be worth can be a very tricky business.
Thankfully, there are several ways you can identity what sort of jewelry you own, and if you’re willing to put in the necessary time and effort, you may also be able to discover roughly what your piece might be worth in the marketplace.
The idea of a priceless piece of diamond jewelry sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic might have seemed romantic in the movie Titanic. In real life, no one wants to lose their rings or bracelets to the sea. That’s why it’s a smart idea to use caution when taking your diamond jewelry to the beach.
Here are five questions to ask yourself before you head to the shore this summer:
Over the past few months we have seen gold on the rise up to $1300 an ounce which we haven’t seen in many years. With this price rise, the Doylestown Gold Exchange has seen a large uptick in customers coming in to get rid of the unwanted jewelry or jewelry they may have inherited through an estate, and to sell gold in Bucks County.
When gold was close to $2,000 an ounce, it seemed like there was a buy gold shop popping up on every corner, but in the last 4 years it has dropped almost 50% and many of those have long gone out of business. As in many markets when there is a decline, it weeds out the shops that may not be trustworthy, and helps to show the shops that are fair and around for the long haul.
As the holidays come upon us, we always say I can’t believe it is here and I have so much to do. So if you find yourself in that situation, the first and only place think of is The Doylestown Gold Exchange. Doylestown Gold Exchange offers wide variety of gifts that will fit anyone’s needs.
