Cashing in some old jewelry with gold at an all time high

goldbug101117Although I’m not rushing to melt down my wedding band just yet, the impressive decade long run-up in gold prices does have me thinking about cashing in. Maybe I can convince my wife to send in a few of those rarely worn gifts to (If it’s good enough for the conservative financial radio guy Dave Ramsey, maybe it’s worth a try? Other suggestions?)

Actually I think we do have a couple of old 1980-90s gold chains (twisted or broken) that were popular jewelry items at the time.


In fact, I think I still have a box chain that my wife gave me when we were dating … hmm, what was gold trading at back then? Perhaps a couple bucks for some Christmas shopping – stay tuned.
