Hot Shopping Tip For 2013

Disclosure-My day job is tightly related to gold sales to the jewelry biz. And that pendant is made by a good friends company. But hey, I sell raw materials not jewelry.
I just think that since gold got so hard to afford in the last few years, it’s worth bringing up when it’s a much better price. Rings and earrings and chains are far more affordable. Most of these things will far outlast a tablet or smartphone.
The big brand stores offer terms and a wide inventory. Sometimes a sale or two. Big name designs.
The smaller independent stores are more likely to be responsive to recent drops in the gold price. Those places that do custom work are certainly more closely tied to the day to day price of metals. “Buy Local” works for jewelers too.
For anyone that bought gold coinage in recent years, let me suggest that you can take one or two or three of those coins and have something made. Many jewelers really will take your gold and use it or at least take it in trade. Turning a 1 year old coin into beautiful custom jewelry for yourself or your loved one adds great sentimental value.
