Why should I invest in gold?

Gold is widely recognised as a commodity, asset and currency by people all over the world, and for that reason, it is a must-have for any portfolio. Firstly, gold can help you to hedge inflation; gold often has a low correlation with other investments and assets, which means it may not follow the path of traditional investments such as index funds during a time of crises and market volatility. During an unstable market or economy, people often look towards gold to help them preserve their wealth as a form of 'portfolio insurance'; this is because of its potential stability when compared to other assets. Gold is considered to be a 'safe haven asset'; similar to watches, gold often appears to have stability and retain value during periods of market

Different types of gold

Before you purchase, sell or exchange your gold, it is important to know what type of gold you want or have, as this will determine the value significantly. Here are the top 3 types of gold that we frequently work with in the luxury goods sector.

Bullion gold

Bullion gold is the most basic form of gold and comes in many sizes of coins and bars. Bullion gold is often purchased as a form of investment. It typically comes in golds purist form of 24ct. We frequently sell bullion gold bars and coins of various sizes and value to our clients.

Gold scrap

Gold scrap

Gold scrap is an umbrella term for gold that represents little value in its current form. Items such as broken and damaged jewellery can be melted down and refined to a pure gold form, which can then be repurposed within the industry. We buy gold in the form of gold chains, gold bracelets, gold earrings, gold watches and more that we consider to be gold scrap. So if you're asking yourself, "Where can I sell my gold jewellery?" or "How much is my gold jewellery worth?" look no further; contact us, and we can provide you with professional advice and instant quotes.

Factors that affect the price of gold

Many factors can influence the price of gold, the first and most important is the purity. Gold comes in 9ct, 18ct, and 24ct. 9ct is the cheapest and least pure and 24ct is the most expensive and subsequently the purest. The more pure your gold is, the softer it is so most jewellery tends to be 9ct or 16ct gold as it is stronger and therefore more practical to use for making things. Some others important factors for the price of gold are economic conditions and supply and demand. The demand for gold is mainly caused by the jewellery industry, investment demand and industrial and technological development. When more people want and need gold, it can create a shortage in the market, leading to an increase in price leaving many investors with a positive return.

Where does the gold supply come from? Gold supply comes from various sources, including mining production, gold reserves and the recycling of gold. The current state of the economy largely influences the value of gold.
