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.

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.
When it comes to jewelry, you may have heard terms such as vintage, antique or estate used to describe a piece.
Often these terms are used incorrectly, which makes things confusing when trying to classify jewelry. The most significant way to differentiate these three terms is by knowing the age of the piece and identifying if its had a previous owner.
Let’s review the differences between vintage, antique and estate jewelry.
Our name is Doylestown Gold Exchange, but we do more than just buy and sell gold.
We’re also your source for new and estate jewelry, which is especially important around this time of year. That’s because Valentine’s Day is approaching, one of the biggest jewelry buying holidays on the calendar
Americans spend $18 billion dollars on Valentine’s Day, and nearly $5 billion of that spending is on jewelry, according to the International Business Times.
A few million people will get engaged this Feb. 14, if statistics from past years (4 million in 2012, 6 million in 2013) are any indication.
So today on the blog, as we remind readers of Valentine’s approach, we’re going to take a look at the history of the holiday, jewelry, engagements, and the way they all intersect.
