The value of Gold has lately been steadily rising. And yesterday we were at “Chuck’s Coins” (a shop in Redding thats sells some Jewelry as well as Coins) and while were there, (My brother Jonathan was buying some Coins) I inquired about some Gems, “Chuck” the owner said that lately, since the price of Gold is going up, people have been Ripping Gems off their Gold Jewelry to melt down the Gold for It’s value! Which, he said causes the gems to go Down in value! Although that may be good for me, a good piece of Jewelry ought not to be destroyed, whatever the value. So don’t let me catch you ripping off Gems from your Necklace!
