Your mother’s engagement ring…
Your grandmother’s brooch…
Your great-grandmother’s earrings…
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.

Apple may have its Apple Watch, and a lot of you may use your cell phones to check the time, but there will always be a place for the wristwatch.

If you’ve been thinking about investing some of your hard-earned money into gold, as so many people seem to be doing these days, you may be wondering what form of gold bullion you should purchase. That is, should you buy bars or coins?
Ultimately, the decision is up to you, although there are a number of facts and details that may inform your decision, and that will likely make it an informed decision.
But first things first: It’s crucial to understand that while most people think only of gold bars when they hear the word ‘bullion,’ gold bullion coins certainly exist as well. Bullion, just to be clear, is simply a refined and stamped weight of precious metal.
So if you’re planning on purchasing gold primarily as an investment—and assuming you prefer coins to bars—you’ll want to steer clear of ‘collectible’ gold coins, and instead make sure that the coins you’re buying are indeed actual bullion.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself and mull over if you’re not sure whether the bullion bar or bullion coin route is the best for your situation:

According to Michael J. Kosares, one of the country’s foremost gold experts and the author of numerous books on the gold market, gold should essentially be thought of as ‘wealth insurance.’
“You cannot approach [gold] the way you approach stock or real estate investments,” Kosares says. “Timing is not the real issue. The first question you need to ask yourself is whether or not you believe you need to own gold. If you answer that question in the affirmative,” he goes on to say, “there is no point in delaying your actual purchase, or waiting for a more favorable price which may or may not appear.”
In other words, gold is one of the most secure financial investments available, and if you’re ready to diversity your investment portfolio with the addition of gold, there’s not much point in waiting for prices to fall, which tends to happen during times of economic crisis. There were periods during the height of the 2008 financial crisis, for instance, during which demand for gold was so great that actual shortages occurred.
So yes, now certainly is a good time to buy gold, which, aside from its positive relationship with the US dollar, has been performing well in other currencies for a few months now.

Unless you happen to be a fairly economically secure individual—someone, for instance, with a broad range of financial investments—you’re probably not in the habit of staying up to date on the fluctuations in the gold market.
And if you don’t have a few dozen gold bullion bars stashed away in a security vault somewhere, why should you, right?
Well … that’s not necessarily the case. And here’s why: Gold has lately been trading at record highs. And if you’re like most people, you may have more access to potentially valuable gold items than you realize.
Of course, as is the case with the rest of the world’s major commodities markets, the price of gold fluctuates on a daily basis. But since 2010, the price of gold has barely dropped below $1,200 an ounce, which is roughly what it’s trading at right now.
When Gold Is Overpriced, You Might Want to Sell
At the time of this writing, gold’s price per ounce was exactly $1,192.23. At various points over the past two years, the per-ounce rate has risen as high as $1,800. For just one ounce!

You’re probably familiar with the Tupperware parties your mother or grandmother may have had in the 1980s, or perhaps the more modern Pampered Chef parties. These events were designed to get friends together for fun, food, and some profit for the hostess.
The newest twist on these entrepreneurial efforts are gold parties. With these parties, guests can make some money rather than spending it, so they’ll be eager to attend.
Hosting a gold party is simple to do. Just get a group of friends together to come to your house with their unwanted gold. Most people have old or broken pieces of jewelry tucked away in a drawer or jewelry box and forgotten. If they bring these items to your party, not only will they have a good time getting together with friends, they could also leave with extra money in their pockets. People are often surprised at how much they’re able to receive for their gold.
