Default Gold so valuable.....

Gold has got so valuable that in Los Angeles and other big cities,thieves are stealing gold necklaces off of people as they walk by,and run with the jewelry...House break-in's just for Gold-Jewelry are way up also,they go strait to the bedroom and look for gold jewelry...I saw a report on the Today Show that said it's getting on safe to wear gold in some parts of the country...I never thought the day would come that you would have to take your Wedding Ring off or get stabbed or shot over it...Yes Thieves have been around forever but this is crazy................

"Chain snatchers" have been around the big cities for years.

I wear very little jewelry- wedding band, silver St Barbara's medal (people that fool with high explosives know St. Barbara)

If you are close enough to snatch either one, you are close enough to learn what a sucking chest wound is.

Yikes! Fortunately, I don't wear much jewelry...mostly just earrings.

Hmmm...have you seen what happens when an earring is snatched? I am sure you can easily picture it.

Good point, though I don't intend to let strangers get that close. And I mostly wear studs, which would be very hard to grab. By that point, they are going to have a very sharp knee in their groin, or worse.

I have a wedding band and watch only!

They are indicating Gold per ounce by end-of-the-year at $2500.

Not good news for the market! Imagine if I had bought gold twenty years ago, when my great uncle told me to....
