"Yes, we're buying gold." That's what the lady on the phone said. I've been hearing about a lot of people selling their gold items (old rings or whatever) now because the price of gold is high. I've been toying with doing that myself.
Actually, more than toying, I thought I was definitely going to do it until called the jewelry store & heard the lady say I could. Then I started having second thoughts... do any of the items have more sentimental value than gold value? Will I regret never any of it again?
Does selling your jewelry mean you're desperate? (It always does in the movies.) Should I use the money to pay off bills, give it to DH for his dental work (bridges must be paid for in advance) or buy something special for myself since it was/is my jewelry?
Suddenly I feel like a toddler yelling MY toys as I clutch them to my chest!
Hmm, sounds to me like I may not quite be totally ready to do this. I wonder if gold prices will go any higher? It's not like I HAVE to sell it right this minute, I could wait & see if it goes up.
Still.. gold is at an all time high right now, and these are things I haven't worn in YEARS. You know, I think I'll take a few odd things with me to work tomorrow... things I'm sure nobody in the family would want and that I don't feel attached to. Then, if I'm in the mood, I may just swing by the jeweler's & check it out...
I'll keep you posted!
