Why is investing in gold jewelry worthwhile?

What you need to know to invest in gold jewelry.

Before you purchase a piece of jewelry as an investment, you must understand a few things:

  • Not all golden-colored jewelry is pure gold or even contains any gold at all! Most jewelry has a stamp with the number of karats of gold the piece contains. 24k gold is 99.99% pure gold. 18k gold is 75% pure. 14k, 12k, 10k stamped pieces contain 58.3%, 50%, and 41.7% gold, respectively.
  • The price of jewelry is often more expensive than the market price of the gold it contains. This makes sense as a part of the value of the piece comes from the skill of the goldsmith.  You can get a better deal on gold when you buy scrap gold jewelry. Scrap gold jewelry is unwearable jewelry, such as broken chains or odd earrings have prices based on the of amount of gold.
