Before opening Doylestown Gold Exchange in 2011, you started to see the landscape of what a traditional jeweler was begin to change as the economy hit a down ward turn and effected the buying habits of its’ customers. There were always local competitors, it was generally a family business serving a large, primarily wealthy multi-generational customer base that routinely purchased luxury jewelry. Then, the 2008 financial crisis hit, and a seismic shift in buying habits occurred. While some people continued purchasing new pieces, others were looking to liquidate their precious metal assets like gold, silver, diamonds, and coins. However, many jewelry stores didn’t buy these items and stuck to their traditional model, so their customers were forced to sell them elsewhere. That’s when we knew a new kind of jewelry store had to emerge.

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.

The Price of Gold Generally Rises
The biggest problem with a lot of “investments” over the past few years is that their prices have fallen instead of risen. This isn’t so bad when you’re ready to buy them. But when you’re looking to cash out and use some of the money you’ve waited so long for, this can be a serious heart breaker.
The big problem with investments that tend to stay where they are—or worse, go down in value—is that you might actually need that money someday for something important. Your kids need to go to school, and you need to retire some day. It almost seems as if some investments assume you just want them for fun, instead of as a way to grow your wealth.
