Gold is Up – Time to Scrap!

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.

There’s color, which actually refers to the lack of color a stone has. One with no color is considered top quality, while a “brown” or “yellow” diamond is a lower standard diamond.

There’s carat, which is the weight of the diamond, and clarity, which refers to the presence or absence of inclusions – or flaws – in the stone.

And finally there’s cut, or the craftsmanship of a diamond: how the facets cooperate with light, the diamond’s overall finish and its proportions and symmetry.

Tips for Choosing a Men’s Wedding Band

gold rings men's wedding bandsBack 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.
