    In America is not so good a time. Idk bout England.

    Usually Gold stays stable so you shouldn't worry and just sell it, but for a little more than you would expect, some people just melt the gold and scam you.

    LOL just for your guys info

    Gold is not usually affected by a recession or credit crunch

    This is because it has its own market(its nothing to do with the stock exchange), generally gold is a safe investment in times like this , and again ill repeat is not affected by the credit crunch as it has its own market ;)

    enquire mate, google it

    lol I bought it in egypt for 1000, I've had it valued in the UK at 1500 so i know it's real and worth quite a bit just wanna know if I'll get a realistic selling price.

    I'm gonna go into a jewellers on friday and see what they think I'll probably look to sell it privately though as I've heard I could get a much better price that way

    yea gold is the best investment you can make, pretty much nothing can touch it and anyway stupid question, you seen prices of stuff lately? prices are deflating, all over the news, if you were gonna sell something the best time would have been months ago before the banks started to crash

    Soz mate dont want to piss on your chips

    but on a seriay note that you got your jewels from egypy dont me any more sympathetic its the one of the biggest terrorist countries in the world

    does my neck in bout this bling/jewellery shit

    little do us westerners know that the gold/diamond whatever industry is run by terrorist/gangs/militias etc

    this is the main money source not opium as the media make it out to be seen cos lets face it the western world loves the diamonds and gold but not heroin,

    dont hark me on this its true

    iraq and afganistan were raided, the 9/11 bombers were taught raised up in morocco egypt north africa etc,

    everyone's selling gold at the moment, because it's pretty much useless but costs a few bob

    all the jewellers have signs up saying "we buy gold!"

    True say, although if economic meltdown continues, the price will likely go even higher as people look to invest in something not controlled by conmen.
