A Maryland jeweler, George Kaufmann, brings his dog Sollie to his store every day. On the evening of January 26, Kaufmann and his business partner, Robert Rosin, were meeting with a diamond dealer and were taking a look at a 3-carat stone when it fell on the floor right next to Sollie. The men watched in horror as Sollie gobbled the diamond right up! After quickly contacting the veterinarian to find out if the dog would be okay and how they could retrieve the diamond, the vet informed Kaufmann he would have to let nature take its course. After three days, Sollie finally passed the diamond which was cleaned and returned to the dealer.

In the world of wacky news, a Tennessee prison inmate won a settlement of $95,000 after a prison guard ripped out his gold teeth. Davidson County Sheriff’s Lt. Tanya Mayhew asked inmate Anthony McCoy to remove the gold from his teeth while being processed at the jail. McCoy informed the guard that the gold was permanently attached to his teeth and could not be removed and the guard proceeded to remove the gold by hand. McCoy’s attorney claimed that his client’s enamel was ripped from four teeth and that his client was only given Tylenol for medical treatment until about two weeks later when a dentist was called.

Has your jewelry ever left green or black marks on your skin? In few cases jewelry can change the color of your skin due to an allergic reaction from certain metals in the jewelry with your skin. In most cases jewelry can stain the skin for reasons including high skin acidity, the use of certain lotions and soaps, and jewelry tarnish. When your skin is slightly more acidic, silver and other metals will oxidize, a process commonly resulting in the rust of metals. Cheaper materials used in jewelry, such as copper and nickel, are much more susceptible to oxidation and when combined with oils from your skin may cause them to leave a colored smudge.
The easiest way to to avoid green skin from jewelry is to buy high carat gold and platinum jewelry. If you’re unable to afford higher quality jewelry then seek out hypoallergenic jewelry that is lined with rhodium plating. The quickest and cheapest fix to stop your jewelry from changing the color of your skin is to put clear nail polish on the parts of the jewelry that touch your skin. Gold-Cash hopes these tips help you solve your jewelry skin changing problems.
Since gaining momentum two years ago, the price of platinum is now closer than ever to the price of gold. Why the sudden demand for platinum? The price of platinum use to be double that of gold but took a big slip in the markets when people began seeing gold as a safe haven investment during the economic crisis. Consumers who considered platinum to be out of their budgetary reach were now able to afford the metal. Also, consumers became aware that platinum offers a re-sale value in tune with gold. Currently, the price of platinum floats just a little above the price of gold per ounce daily.
Initially, platinum jewelry was only popular in Japan, U.S., and China. In India platinum was primarily used for industrial consumption in the auto and photography sectors. The metal’s potential use in jewelry eventually allowed platinum to be in huge demand in urban India. One problem facing platinum re-sale is its close resemblance to silver and aluminum. Such concerns force jewelry buyers to pay close attention to the quality of the platinum. If you’re looking to get cash for your platinum, gold, and silver jewelry contact us today. We have six locations, a mail-in service, and offer a 110% Price Guarantee.
A large burial site located in Bulgaria known as the Varna Necropolis was accidently discovered by excavator Raycho Marinov in 1972. Marinov recovered over 3000 golden objects from 294 graves. The graves, dating back to 4200-4600 B.C.E., belonged to the Varna culture. Symbolic graves that contained no skeleton were the richest in gold artifacts with most of the gold being 23.5 carats. Gold items in symbolic graves also had the items placed where you’d expect them to be found on a skeleton, a gold bracelet in the area you would expect an arm to lie and gold earrings where the head would be. The gold objects are of fine craftsmanship and indicate some level of technology by employing techniques such as hammering, piercing, and cutting.
The amount of gold objects found in a grave signifies social stratification and paved the way for the development of social classes. The Varna Necropolis is important because it offers the oldest known burial evidence of an elite male. Also, the Varna cultures sudden discontinuity has lead to much speculation including theories of climate change, war, and land exhaustion.
The Golden Jubilee diamond is famous for currently being the largest faceted diamond in the world. The diamond was discovered in 1985 at the Premier Mine in South Africa. The 755.5 carat brown diamond would later be cut to 545.67 carats and would quickly over come its “ugly duckling” reputation.
The diamond came into the ownership of De Beers and was brought to Thailand by the Thai Diamond Manufacturers Association in Laem Chabang. It was later purchased by Henry Ho of Thailand in 1995 and was actually blessed by Pope John Paul II at the Vatican. The diamond was also blessed by the Supreme Buddhist Patriarch and the Supreme Imam in Thailand.
Having mainly been known as the “Unnamed Brown” the diamond finally received the name The Golden Jubilee Diamond by King Bhumibol Adulyadej after he received it in honor of his 50th coronation anniversary. Instead of being mounted in a royal scepter it was placed in the Royal Thai Palace as part of the crown jewels where it still remains.
Federal agents have seized a 64-carat diamond that was stolen at Kennedy Airport and sold for $1 million to a Fifth Avenue jeweler. The rock is valued at approximately $3.3 million according to Brooklyn Federal Court records. The jewel was transported to the city last September by diamond dealer Dennis Van Kerrebroeck, who had an agreement to purchase it from a South African mining company. After U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers had the diamond in custody Van Kerrebroeck contacted a customs broker and arranged clearance for the diamond without the mining company’s consent. Van Kerrebroeck then sold the diamond to Taly Diamond where it was seized last Thursday. Law enforcement is now trying to locate Van Kerrebroeck.
