Could Iran Sanctions Affect the Price of Gold?

cash for gold Bucks County

Last month, the United States government announced it would impose “the strongest sanctions in history” on Iran.

And while a lot of the news coverage on this issue dealt with how the sanctions would affect oil and gas prices, it’s worth taking a minute to ask a question any Bucks County cash for gold business might ask:

What does this mean for gold prices?

It will most likely give them a boost, at least according to some analysts.

“The news should come as some welcome relief to anyone who owns the metal as its performance hasn’t been exactly stellar of late,” writes Simon Constable in Forbes. “The price of gold was recently trading around $1,293 a troy ounce, down from an average of around $1,332 in January, according to data from the London Bullion Market Association, a U.K.-based metals market trade group.”

The new sanctions make it illegal for anyone in the U.S. to do business with Iran, while also virtually prohibiting the use of any major bank for Iranian trade.

But what does that have to do with gold?

According to Forbes, the U.S. is trying to close a loophole that allows the use of precious metals to get around the sanctions. But Constable also notes that the government is unlikely to succeed.

“Part of the reasoning is that gold has a long history of use when other currencies are unusable,” he writes. “On top of that, gold has long been used in Iran, both by the government and the people, both to store value and to skirt sanctions.”

Gold is useful now for the same reason it was a few hundred or a few thousand years ago: it’s works as a form of currency when banks are off limits.

It’s especially valuable in Iran, Forbes notes: The country is dealing with substantial inflation and has a long history of selling oil for gold. All of this adds up to a situation where gold will be in greater demand.

Getting cash for your gold

Gold has always made a good investment, particularly for people who are focused on preserving their wealth. We like to refer readers to this quote about gold investment from our owner, Greg Glemser:

“It’s the idea that I want my $100 today to be worth $100 next year. You’re not really investing to make money, you’re investing to preserve the money you have.”

At the same time, you might be in a situation where you need cash and begin to shop around for Bucks County cash for gold businesses.

If that’s the case, we’d recommend taking these steps before you sell:

Know the value of what you’re selling

There are plenty of online sources that can tell you the current market price of gold and other precious metals. (We track precious metal spot prices on our home page.)

You should also know the karats of your gold jewelry before you sell. For example, something that was 14 karats would be 14 parts gold and 10 parts other metals (gold is too soft to be used in jewelry and must be combined with other materials in order to last).

When you know the karats of your gold, and the current gold prices, you’ll be in a better positioning when negotiating with a buyer.

Shop around

There’s no rule that says you need to take the first offer you get for your gold. Shop around at different Bucks County cash for gold buyers and choose someone you trust.

Doylestown Gold Exchange has spent more than two decades establishing itself as a trustworthy buyer of gold. We don’t just aim for a one-time sale but look to build long-term relationships with customers who want to buy gold, sell gold, or have jewelry appraised.

Contact us today or pay us a visit to find out how we can help you get the best value for your gold.

Why You Shouldn’t Wear Jewelry to the Beach

Ring Lost at the Jersey Shore

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:

How Will Brexit Affect Gold Investments in PA?

Will Brexit affect gold investments in PA?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.”

So how will Brexit affect gold investments in PA? It depends on who you ask.

Now at Doylestown Gold: A vintage Fender Jaguar guitar for sale

Fender Jaguar GuitarDoylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers has just acquired a vintage Fender Jaguar guitar. This is an incredibly cool instrument. It’s also a rather rare guitar, and a true collector’s showpiece.

The Fender Jaguar was produced for 13 years, beginning in 1962. It introduced a number of sonic features that were designed to lure guitar players away from Gibson, which was one of the company’s main competitors at the time.

The Beach Boys’ Carl Wilson was one of the best-known guitarists who played with a Fender Jaguar during the instrument’s salad days. Indeed, the Jaguar’s earliest burst of popularity came directly from the mid-60s surf rock scene.

In the 1980s, years after Fender had cancelled production of the Jaguar, the guitar experienced an unexpected resurgence of popularity in the punk rock and new wave scenes.

But it wasn’t until the introduction of alternative rock and indie rock in the 1980s and 90s that the Jaguar’s social currency — not to mention the financial value of vintage Jaguar models, like the one we recently acquired — truly began to explode.

It’s Official: We’re the Best Gold & Precious Metal Buyers in Bucks County!

Doylestown Gold Exchange Best Gold and Precious Metal Buyers in Bucks CountyIf you’ve lived in the Bucks County or Montgomery County areas for any length of time, you’re probably familiar with the Best of Bucks readers’ choice contest that’s organized annually by the Bucks County Courier Times. Our local Doylestown newspaper, The Intelligencer, runs its own readers’ choice contest each year as well — it’s known as the Best of Bucks-Mont.

Every autumn, both papers list the community’s favorite businesses, products and services, and this year, Doylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers came out on top in not one but two different categories. To say that we’re both humbled and incredibly grateful would be a huge understatement.

In The Intelligencer’s Best of Bucks-Mont poll, we were honored as “One of the Best Jewelry Stores” in the two-county region. Which isn’t bad for a shop that’s been in business for less than three years! Some of you may remember we actually won the very same honor in last year’s contest.

But much to our surprise, both papers awarded us the top prize in a brand-new category, Best Gold & Precious Metal Buyers.
