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.
With a Graduate Gemologist on staff we can help you find that beautiful diamond engagement ring to pop the big question, or help you purchase a nice diamond pendant or diamond earrings at prices that can’t be beat.
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.
Pieces of jewelry like these are your family’s treasurers. In a way, they’re invaluable, because they connect you to your lost loved ones.
But there may come a time when you need to put an actual price on your jewelry. In some cases, it’s for insurance purposes. When you need to set the value of an estate, an appraisal can help you determine the fair market value.
Here are a few things to consider when searching for a Bucks County estate jewelry appraiser.
We’re all more than familiar with the perils of the best-known Valentine’s Day gift-giving clichés: Surprise your better half with a box of chocolates, say, or a plush teddy bear clutching a single red rose on the evening of February 14, and you may find yourself on the receiving end of a less-than-enthusiastic reception come nightfall.
It almost goes without saying: Choosing just the right Valentine’s Day gift is a challenge of colossal proportions. The pressure to get it right is especially intense for men, because—and let’s just be honest here, guys—most of us aren’t terribly skilled when it comes to picking out a gift that’s romantic but not sleazy. Or a gift that’s touching, but not saccharine or cutesy. Or one that’s particularly meaningful, but not too over-the-top.
Of course, it helps immensely if you actually understand the disposition of the woman you’re buying for. Is she the type who’d be genuinely flattered by a heart-shaped box of candy? Or would she prefer a quietly romantic night in that didn’t involve cooking for you or the kids? Those can sometimes be tough questions to answer, even if your Valentine is a woman you’ve been sharing a home and a bed with for years.
Ah, the holiday season! For some of us, it’s perhaps the most jubilant time of year — one filled with the joys of giving and receiving.
But for others, it’s a nonstop shopping excursion filled with frustration and second-guessing. For men especially, it can be tough to know exactly what to buy for the various women in their lives: our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, wives, fiancées.
So with that in mind, here’s a can’t-miss tip for holiday season shopping: No matter what sort of woman you’re shopping for, fine jewelry is definitely one the safest gift-buying moves you can make. It’ll also be one of the most appreciated.
