Think gold is only for jewelry?

Gold has been one of the most highly sought-after mentals since time immemorial. Why is that? Sure, people love to adorn themselves with riches, showing status and wealth, but that is far from the extent of it.

Did you know that gold use plays a daily part in your life that you are likely not even aware of? 

Gold is often used in electronics and computers. Gold is a wonderful conductor of electricity. It is in your laptops, desktops, iphones, androids, iPads, and much more.

Gold is used by NASA for aerospace technology. Gold is even used in visor shields for the astronauts. It helps to shield their eyes from harmful rays of the sun. The sun’s rays are even stronger in space than they are here on earth so normal sunglasses won’t cut it.  Gold is also used as insulation to protect the inside of the spacecraft from radiation. Additionally, it acts well as a lubricant to protect the mechanical workings of the ship.

Gold is also used to forge awards and metals. Olympic metals, trophies, academy awards, Oscars, and more. Gold is sought after not just for the economic value but also the intrinsic value placed on it because of the valued items it is used in.

And yes, of course, gold is made into wedding bands, watches, rings, bracelets, necklaces, pins, and jewelry of all kinds.

If you have gold coins, old jewelry, even old broken pieces, its still very valuable. At First Pawn Jewelry and Loan we would love to see what you have and make you an offer.
