Krugerrand, bullion, ounce, investment, leprechaun.

And no jewelry. I never wear it.

Gold really doesnt do anything for me. I know many people like gold jewelry but since I seldom to never wear jewelry (except for my silver locket), just doesnt attract my attention...unless someone is going all-force and doing bling-bling, then its a big turn-off.

Gold is just another color to me. Now if you're talking $$, the color of green, that looks mighty good.

Gold is OUT. Platinum and Silver are IN! My new favorite look is silver and turquoise--looks great together. Not too long ago--sold all my gold jewelry (well most of it--I did keep a few pieces) to one of those "SELL YOUR GOLD BACK". I walked away with over $1400.00!!! I had a lot and most of it was 18 kt from Italy. So that's my take on gold--got rid of it--much prefer silver and platinum!
