Learn How To Know An Online Coin Dealer Is Reputable

by Tammy May

Many people are investing in gold because it holds its value so well, is easy to store, and makes them feel secure that they are controlling their assets in a personal way. Buying gold online is a quick and easy way to get the gold you want from the comfort of your own home. When you buy gold online, you need to be sure that you buy from a reputable dealer. The following guide helps you learn what key factors to look for when searching for a gold coin dealer online.

Look for Contact Information

When you look at a dealer's site, look for specific contact information for the dealer. You need to be able to contact the dealer if anything goes wrong with the transaction. Be sure that they have a specific street address listed in their contact information and then do a search for that address online. You want to be sure that the address is attached with a gold dealer in some form or fashion. If the address is attached to a P.O. box, avoid buying gold from that dealer.  

Check for a Secure Shopping Cart

When you go to the shopping cart on the site, look next to the search bar to see if there is a picture of a closed or open lock. If you see a picture of an open lock, that means that the shopping cart is not secure and anyone could steal your information that you put into the cart. Only buy from a seller that has a picture of a closed lock next to the search bar when you go to check out on their site.

Look for Reviews About the Dealer

Take the time to look for reviews on the dealer on various sites online. You can do a search for the dealer's name on any web browser to find out if there is anything posted about the dealer. This will allow you to be sure that they are not running a scam and going to simply take your money and send you fake gold in return.

By taking the time to do a little bit of research about an online gold dealer and paying attention to the dealer's site, you should be able to make a smart gold purchase online. You want to be sure to store the gold in a safe place after it arrives to ensure that it is not stolen or accidentally lost.

Metal Sensitivity: Advice From a Jewelry Lover

Ever since I was a child, I've loved the look of fashion earrings. However, I soon discovered that my ears are sensitive to metal-coated earrings. Rather than spend a small fortune for custom made jewelry, I've found retailers that sell hypoallergenic earrings. These earrings are made for individuals such as myself with sensitivity to metals. Check your high-end department stores or local jeweler. You'll find hypoallergenic earrings in sterling silver, white gold, yellow gold, and platinum. The main thing is to never choose jewelry containing nickle, as this is commonly the culprit. A good alternative to metals listed above is titanium jewelry, as this is considered to be hypoallergenic. Also, avoid using harsh detergents or chemicals to clean your earrings and jewelry, as this may cause further irritation. Mild dish soap may work well, but be sure to rinse your jewelry thoroughly.
