Did you know that, worldwide, the amount of gold that has been mined is around 152,000 metric tons? To put that in perspective, look at it this way…the gold that has been mined is only enough to fill about 60 tractor trailers. Crazy!
Kind of makes you look at your gold bangle bracelets differently, does it not? When you see gold as the rarity it really is, it makes it a lot more valuable.
The way to tell how much pure gold is in a piece of jewelry is to check the karat quality mark, which will give you the answer you are looking for.
