Gold Rises Above $1,500 an Ounce for the First Time Ever

Oil Prices, if you haven’t noticed, are skyrocketing to all new highs across the Country. The value of the USD has been steadily decreasing over a span of fifteen consecutive months, reaching a record-breaking low on Wednesday.

Daily Markets analyst Michael Snyder explains that as a result of the progressive weakening of the US Dollar, the appeal of Gold and Silver is boosted.  There are also high demands for gold from emerging economies like China and India, which help to fuel the rise in gold’s value.

Spot gold traded at $1,505.21 an ounce and was bid at $1,505.16 an ounce at 5:42 a.m. ET, against $1,493.90 late in New York on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

Mike Maloney on the continued rise of value in Gold

What This All Means for Our Readers, Customers and Consumers Nationwide:

In these challenging economic times, many consumers have taken advantage of selling rarely worn jewelry pieces, high-end watches, and even scrap gold and silver. With payouts for these metals at an all-time high, it’s best to strike while the iron is hot!

If you have any pieces of gold jewelry that have been sitting in a drawer or treasure box at home for years, timepieces or wristwatches that have gone unworn, or even gold coins that you have considered selling…  NOW is the time.

This very well may be your last chance to make such strong a profit from your gold pieces.  Below you will find a list of the prices are currently paying for Gold at Raymond Lee Jewelers.  At $1503 per oz., Raymond Lee Jewelers is currently paying out the following:

Gold per dwt:

10K – $22.55

14K – $37.58

18K – $51.10

Gold per gram:

10K – $15.00

14K – $25.00

18K – $34.07

Gold per ounce:

10K – $450.00

14K – $752.00

18K – $1022.00

Pennyweight and grams are the two terms most commonly used to measure the weight of gold. To convert either measurement to ounces:

1 troy ounce = 20    dwt
1 troy ounce = 31.1 grams

So, if you do have some jewelry pieces or gold coins that you’ve been thinking of selling, now is the time to take those items in for an evaluation at Raymond Lee Jewelers. There is no pressure to sell, and written appraisals are available with a scheduled appointment, which can easily be made by calling us directly at (561) 750-7808.

Win a Vintage Lace Maxidress from Vintage Space

Thanks to Vintage Space we have this authentic 70s vintage lace dress to give away.

Vintage Lace Maxidress Giveaway by Vintage Space

Vintage Lace Maxidress Giveaway by Vintage Space

The beauty of a vintage piece is that it’s usually one of a kind. You have those glorious moments where someone says to you “amazing dress – where is it from?” and you get to disappoint them by saying “oh, it’s vintage” (i.e. you’ll never find one like it)!

The trouble with hunting down great vintage clothing in the age of the Internet though is that there’s actually too much. It’s hard to filter through the junk and find the gems – that’s when you need to seek out those high quality stores that only stock the best time and again, so you know where to head back to for your vintage fix.

Vintage Space is one of those stores.

With the clothing and accessories vivid with vintage nostalgia by Vintage Space, those of us who adore the look of a tiered, long skirt with layers of top lace falling whimsically down our back, chest and shoulders can keep our personal styles well-maintained. For that, Vintage Space, we thank you! 

This one-of-a-kind immaculately cut vintage lace dress will be part of a giveaway, made possible by and Vintage Space.

Wear it with angelic innocence, or a big floppy hat for 70s hippy appeal.

Good Morning, All!  While browsing our eBay store this morning, I came across this fantastic vintage watch by Omega. The model is Seamaster, with a stainless steel case and black leather bracelet. A bit of history about Omega’s Seamaster Series:

At the time the Seamaster was introduced in 1948, standard watches were extremely susceptible to water damage from even a dip in a sink or tub. The Seamaster was created as a line of standard dress-style watches which were ‘waterproof’ (as they called them then) suitable for swimming and other light water activities. Their water resistance then is about comparable to a 10 to 30 meter rating today. The now common diver’s watch style was unknown at that time.

Company Omega
Model Seamaster

Bracelet Black Leather
Dial Silver
Crystal Plastic
