Gold is a rare commodity, because there are very few large deposits left in the world. According to Goldman Sachs, the world only has about a 20 year supply left to be mined.“The combination of very low concentrations of metals in the Earth’s crust, and very few high-quality deposits, means some things are truly scarce,” Eugene King, European metals and mining analyst at Goldman Sachs, wrote in a recent research note.
“Gold has been used as a measure of wealth for more than 4,000 years, as the ancient Egyptians soon worked out that gold was not only shiny and heavy, but rare,” King said.
Recycling the precious metals in jewelry has been going on for centuries. Gold silver and platinum are melted down and formed into new pieces of jewelry. In all likelihood, the ring or bracelet you’re wearing now could have been somebody else’s earrings or chain in another life.
The cost of mining for precious metals like gold and silver in terms of damage to the environment makes the prospect of recycling your old, broken jewelry even more appealing. Did I mention the added bonus that you get cash for your gold?
Help the environment and make made some cash at the same time this Earth Day. What could be better!
