I read that Imelda Marcos said that her late husband President Ferdinand Marcos likes Gold very much than diamond because he said when you throw diamond in fire it is just like carbon while gold when put in fire, it will improve its color and value. Value means the glittery of the metal. Yes gold is a very good investment because the price of it keeps rising and never depreciated even once. I can attest to this because I am a gold lover. I always bought gold jewelry even in small quantity since ten years ago.
You can buy gold bullion today and wait for few years to appreciate its value. This is a sure investment so nothing to worry. Real Estates and precious metals are investments that keep on appreciating. If you want to invest your money then gold is for you. Just be sure to have a safety place to put your gold if you are not investing it in stock market.
