Prolific through Asia, and accepted as a means of currency globally, 24k gold jewelry is more than just an object of adornment, it is a means transporting or even accumulating wealth. Wealth in jewelry comes with benefits other methods do not.
Whatever country you find yourself in, a solid gold necklace can be used to make purchases. Just taking links off the 24k necklace or gold bracelet for payment, and with a universal rate for gold, there is no confusion. The price of pure gold jewelry is not governed by each country, it has a global value.
24 karat gold jewelry is highly portable between countries. There isn’t the worry that your wealth may go missing if your luggage is mislaid. What better way to transport a 24k gold chain than around your neck where you can’t lose it.
One country that is no stranger to using a 24k gold baht necklace for payment is Thailand. Their currency is the Baht and they use baht gold jewelry for transaction payments. A baht necklace is a familiar sight and a popular form of wealth.
Something you need to make sure of when buying a solid gold necklace is that it is 99.99% solid gold. If it has anything less then it will only be considered as an object of beauty and not an item of wealth. Make sure you go to a reputable dealer when purchasing 24k gold necklaces.
Solid gold jewelry is not affected by the global economic recession. The price of gold is set by the markets and no country has the power to influence the price unduly for long, unlike the money and stock markets.
When once it was fashionable to store wealth in gold bullion and coins, it is not seen wise to do so for portable wealth because it is cumbersome to transport and there is a possibility that gold bullion could be recalled or confiscated at a border.
