Gold has a way of coming into favor for many years, moving to the background for a few, then coming back as strong as ever. Right now, the wave is coming in and people are wearing gold as much as ever. Jewelry trends come and go, but gold is always a favorite for both men and women.
In addition to its unmatched beauty, gold holds its value. It’s a precious metal that almost predates the planet earth. Seriously! Most all of the gold mined came from meteorites that bombarded our planet 200 million years ago. So it’s accurate to say the gold necklace you’re wearing is part of the spoils of an outer-space invasion while the earth was being formed.
Just about every aspect of gold makes it unique and valuable.
• It’s the only metal that has a gold color. Any other metal that is yellow or goldish in color is a result of oxidation or mixing with other metals.
• It’s amazingly ductile. You can take one ounce of gold and stretch it into a golden thread five miles long!
• It never goes out of fashion. Even after you’ve put a piece of gold jewelry away for a few years, you will always return to it.
• It holds its value. From millennia to millennia, gold has been a prized metal. It has always been valuable, and there’s no reason to think that will change any time soon.
