    Can you believe that I read that and went "huh?"?

    Hmm, how can I explain it using question form? Would you mind if I cheated just a bit to explain?

    The $1,000 per ounce price is based on pure gold, which is 24 karat, extremely soft. Since most of our gold sold in the U.S. is either 14 karat or 10 karat (18 karat is more common in Europe) the price that jewelers give us for buyback is much less than the 1000 bucks per ounce. I was extremely disappointed when I found that out firsthand.

    How do they determine which type it is? They can't go by the engraving alone, so they can look at it with a loop? Or not?

    Do you know that my brother-in-law was in jewelry manufacturing for many years and can probably answer your question better than I?

    Do I think that most jewelry that is either 14karat or 10karat gold must be marked as such?

    Is it not true that all gold must be marked with the proper "K" mark?

    Do you know that I've never trusted those "cash for gold" and "cash for jewelry" TV ads, especially if you have to mail it in?

    If we all agreed to post a picture of ourselves in our avatar for one day, would you do it?

    Would you accept at a picture of my SO and myself (that's all I have in my Media Center picture file at the moment)???? Would you believe that is an affirmative answer?
