Gold hit a high of 1900 dollars per ounce in 2011 and there was a spike in theft. Many people who displayed their gold chains were victims of "chain snatching". Unfortunately, when the economy is in distress and more people are out of jobs the incidence of store, home and physical theft can increase.
Lately gold has been peaking close to $2,000 per ounce with projections of $2,500 per ounce.
If you do have gold it is a great time to sell it if you need the money for bills etc. I know many people have pieces that hold sentimental value which makes it more difficult to part from them. But you should not have it taken from you.
It is critical that you are aware of where and when you are wearing the gold jewelry you enjoy so much. This is a warning for both men and women. Just want you to be aware.
