Do You Like Jewelry?
Back in the times of the Roman empire, in the second century B.C.E., a Roman bride would actually get two rings. She would get the gold one, which she wore in public, and another made of iron which she wore at home while doing house chores. Today, most marriages give a woman one ring, but things like a link bracelets, gold bangle bracelets and gold tennis bracelets are common gifts for anniversaries, to complement the original wedding ring and other jewelry.
The ancient Egyptians also were buried wearing rings made of a single silver or gold wire, which was placed on the third finger of their left hand. This is because the Egyptians believed a vein in that finger went directly to the heart. That is not the case today, as most of the time jewelry becomes keepsakes in families. Especially when you buy designer diamond engagement rings, the ring can stay in the family and become a valuable heirloom.
The amount of gold that has been mined is only enough to fill 60 tractor trailers. That amounts to 152,000 metric tons. Gold is an extremely valuable and rare resource, and makes for one of the greatest gifts you can give a person. In fact, the best advice on buying an engagement ring involves buying something of a high quality gold, as the value will not only keep, but improve. The highest ranking for gold is 24 carats, which means if a piece of gold is 14 carats, it is 14 parts gold and 10 parts of another metal.
Whether you buying a link bracelets, gold cross pendants or any other type of jewelry, you should look for high quality gold. The best quality jewelry will make the recipient of said jewelry very happy, and provide for a solid investment. After all, what woman does not love gold jewelry, and especially knowing their gold jewelry is high quality?
