Thoughts on Gold

Why do we love precious metals? 58% of gold found in the world is used in jewelry. Some thoughts…these metals have a remarkable resistance to attack by the environment which is why they are also called the “noble metals”. Gold and silver were widely available around the world found in alluvial deposits and could be manipulated into wearable objects becoming a symbol of wealth. Eventually these elements assumed a monetary role.  It is difficult not to be attracted to this beautiful material.
