“Gold jewelry has always been sought after for its beauty, its luster and its
value. It feels good to wear because it is warm, radiant and beautiful. Because
it does not rust, tarnish or corrode, gold lasts forever and is often a tangible
memento that is passed down from one generation to the next.”
