With Warhammer Online launched this week, many people are looking into buying Warhammer gold to supplement their game play. When you buy Warhammer Online gold, you usually order through an online service that accepts pay-pal, e-gold, or another similar funds transfer service. What most people do not realize about paying with these services is that it IS NOT SAFE. That’s right! Not safe by any means.

A gold test kit is a handy set of tools that will help you identify whether a piece is truly gold or something else. Careful examination should come first. Of course, you have to look for the karat mark. Your kit will test whether this karat mark speaks the truth. You will need the acid testers and the gold tipped needles. What is unique about the acid tester is that it comes compatible with a certain mass of gold. In other words, there is a compatible acid testing solution for a 10 karat gold (and it should only be used on a 10 karat gold); and there is a different solution for a 14 karat gold, and so on.

Online trading gives a trader the opportunity to invest in a wide market. The gold market changes frequently and its prices are fluctuating, through online gold trading you can switch in to real time gold prices. Online trading can also diminish the risk of inflation. If other business burdens you, demanding your time and presence, by trading gold online it will demand neither your time nor presence. The trading of gold has been seen as relatively safe for short-term as well as long-term investments. All these benefits have turned many people towards trading gold in an online manner.

This question can be answered by looking at what caused the gold bubble of the 1970s to implode. Again, gold is seen as money. As more and more money is pumped into the economy, the higher the price of the precious metal. In 1979, President Carter nominated Paul Volker as the Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Volker promised a cure to the staggering inflation inflicting the 1970’s economy. He delivered. He did so by raising the Federal Funds Rate (FFR). The FFR is the interest rate that banks charge when lending to each other. As this rate rises, banks find it harder or more expensive to borrow from other banks. Essentially, this draws money out of the economy. The price of gold started its precipitous fall when the Fed Funds Rate climbed above 9%.

In order to decide which karat of Gold is the best choice for you, consider what you want to get out of the piece. If you want a piece that will last for a lifetime and are looking to make an investment, consider purchasing a piece that is 18 karat or 24 karat bullion by post. However, keep in mind that the higher karats of gold are going to be much softer making them susceptible to dings and scratches. If you want a piece that is beautiful, durable yet a bit more affordable go with a lower karat of gold.

People wear their jewellery differently, and there is no way to accurately predict how long your rhodium plating will last. On earrings and Necklaces it can last a very long time, because those pieces experience very little physical contact with the environment. Rings and bracelets are a different story. Constant wear on a ring can cause rhodium to rub off in as little as six months. From my experience both selling and wearing white gold jewellery, it seems that a ring will need to be re-plated roughly once every six months to two years.

Rose Gold: There is no such thing as pure rose gold either, since rose gold is an alloy of gold and copper. Rose gold, red gold, and pink gold are all made from varying combinations of gold, copper, and (sometimes) small amounts of silver. The varying percentage of copper used determines the color of the gold.

There are lots of these online gold buyers popping up almost every day. Most are very reputable and trustworthy, but you may run across some that may sound too good to be true. Do your research wisely and check with the Better Business Bureau if you are suspicious. Just like anything else, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
